  1. Strategic Effects-based Objective Approach to Determine the Likelihood of Possible Terrorist Attacks

    SBC: DEUMBRA, INC.            Topic: HSB041004

    The goal of this research is to extend TMODS (Terrorist Modus Operandi Detection System), that has been funded by DARPA¿s EELD (Evidence Extraction and Link Discovery) and Genoa 2, and TIA programs. TMODS uses terrorist network analysis (TNA) to build the representation for abnormal social networks indicative of terrorist or illicit network-centric cells and searches for these patterns in huge po ...

  3. Advanced Secure Supervisory and Data Acquisition (SCADA) and Realted Discribution Control Systems

    SBC: Asier Technology Corporation            Topic: HSB041008

    The goal of this study is to attempt to place, where possible, highly efficient encryption and authentication algorithms in legacy devices already installed in the SCADA network. Where this is not possible, low cost inline security units will be proposed. On the larger scale, multi-level secure Internet protocols will be examined as a method to facilitate the sharing of control and status informat ...

  4. Innovative SCADA Security Mechanism

    SBC: DUNTI, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Today, Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) is popularly deployed in automated control system of many of the Nation¿s critical infrastructures. Most of these systems were designed and built for operational efficiency. With cyber attack becoming an important factor, it is becoming essential to protect SCADA systems. Over the past couple of years industry is integrating many security fe ...

  5. Nucleoprozyme Receptors for Biological Detection

    SBC: ECHO TECHNICAL            Topic: N/A

    Echo Technical, with Dr. Ellington at the University of Texas at Austin, has performed initial testing of a demonstration biosensor capable of using aptamer-based receptors (Biological Reconfigurable Interface Electronics For Classification and Analysis of Selected Elements, or BRIEFCASE). After initial testing, we found that aptamer-based biological sensors as currently developed are not sufficie ...

  6. Microwave Data Telemetry for Marine Container Security

    SBC: INFRARED TELEMETRICS, INC            Topic: HSB041005

    IR Telemetrics builds microwave telemetry systems for transmitting sensor data through narrow metallic passages within automobile engines. IRT devices can interface with sensors and transmit their data to a local receiver network through complex passages as small as four centimeters. Research will adapt IRT core technology to enable continuous communication with marine containers. The performance ...

  7. Development of a Laboratory Scale CD-SAXS Device for Semiconductor Metrology Applications

    SBC: Jordan Valley Semiconductors, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A semiconductor metrology tool will be developed employing the technique of small-angle x-ray scattering (SAXS) to measure the critical dimension (CD) of patterned device structures. The feasibility of the SAXS technique to measure CD has been shown using high-power synchrotron radiation facilities which are not of practical use to the semiconductor industry. The ultimate project goal is to produc ...

  8. Miniature Quickscan Receiver

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM04004

    Special Operation Forces personnel require a rugged, miniature receiver that is capable of monitoring RF energy while deployed on a mission. The RF receiver will give a better picture of the electromagnetic threat environment enabling a heightened situational awareness, yet the device must be small enough that it does not hamper the SOF warfighter during missions requiring stealth and rapid mobil ...

  9. FRET Aptamer-Based Biosensor Array for Homeland Defense

    SBC: Operational Techologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET)-DNA aptamers are oligonucleotides that have been modified with fluorophores and quenchers in their structures so that upon binding to their target analytes, the fluorophore and quencher become separated and capable of emitting light to indicate that binding has occurred. In Phase I, Operational Technologies Corporation (OpTech) will compare a ¿ratio ...

  10. CMOS FET and AlGaN MODFET Receptor Scaffold for Molecular Recognition and Direct Detection

    SBC: Peterson Ridge LLC            Topic: N/A

    This project is designed to test a novel receptor scaffold/sensor combination for the selective and direct measurement of antigens and to compare direct electric detection of antigens against the corresponding antibody based ELISA method. The scaffold concept combines a robust nucleic acid receptor (aptamer) coupled to a low cost CMOS FET and AlGaN MODFET transducer. Aptamers are short nucleic aci ...
