  2. 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 ...

  3. A Novel, Low Power, High Throughput, High Efficiency, Scalable Electrostatic Bioaerosol Sampler

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: HSB041003

    Current bioaerosol monitoring strategies rely on inertia-based sampling and suffer from high power consumption and low efficiency limitations. In contrast, our overall objective is to design and demonstrate a novel electrostatic sampler that provides dramatic improvements including low power requirement (90% for 1-10mm), high viability (>80%), scalability for varying threat scenarios, low noise, a ...

  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. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Marine Asset Tag Using Near Field Electromagnetic Ranging

    SBC: Q-Track Corporation            Topic: N/A

    We propose a Marine Asset Tag Tracking System (MATTS) using a breakthrough wireless tracking technology called near field electromagnetic ranging (NFER¿). The primary objective of Phase I is to validate that NFER¿ technology is the best RF solution for tracking containers on ships and in ports. Phase I will also (1) develop an overall architecture for the MATTS; (2) design the container tag; ...

  10. Crypto-Secure Remote Terminal Unit for New and Retrofit Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition

    SBC: THE RIGHT STUFF OF TAHOE, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop an integrated Cryptography Module (CM) and RTU (CMRTU) for SCADA applications. When used in CM mode, our CMRTU will be easily retrofitted into existing SCADA networks. When used in advanced RTU mode (where higher bandwidth connections are available), our CMRTU will provide both a secure gateway function and secure Internet protocols for interaction with either central monitor ...
