  1. Chem-Bio Sensors Employing Novel Receptor Scaffolds

    SBC: BIOTRACES, INC.            Topic: HSB041002

    The goal of this SBIR Phase I project is to develop supersensitive MPD enabled, binding assays for detection of BW agent using aptamers as the capture molecules instead of antibodies. Multi Photon Detection (MPD) is the most sensitive methods for protein detection and achieved a few zeptomole sensitivity. MPD enabled immunoassays will be developed first and from these Super-ELISA methods will be d ...

  2. Advanced Ultrasonic Inspection Device

    SBC: Ceres Biotechnology, LLC            Topic: HSB041007

    What is proposed is a listener analysis of ultrasonic echoes generated in fluid filled tanks. Ultrasonic hearing humans is possible and the firm has a SBIR on a related device for the blind. The company also has the rights to an ultrasonic hearing air patent. The brain is capable of extracting the ultrasonic signal from the tank

  3. A Heuristic Approach to Detecting Anomalous Protocol Payloads

    SBC: Cigital, Inc.            Topic: HSB042002

    Internet worms have become a common occurrence, but they have yet to inflict significant damage on our information infrastructure. Security experts predict the dawn of a new age of superworms that are far more dangerous than those we have encountered, and whose speed, stealth, and destructive power pose a significant threat. One promising approach to preventing the spread of future worms is to ex ...

  4. DECISIVE ANALYTICS Corporation Response to Cross-Domain Attack Correlation Technologies


    The DECISIVE ANALYTICS Team presents a suite of novel technique to perform distributed event correlation across distinct administrative domains while preserving privacy. Our approach for detecting attacks is based on the facts, prerequisites, and consequences of an attack. Such an approach allows us to detect well-known and stealthy attacks while also minimizing false alarms. Normal and suspicious ...

  5. Distant Detection of Concealed Weapons

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    Luna Innovations is investigating an ultrasonic/acoustic detection system for concealed weapons and explosives for the Department of Justice. Using ultrasonic beams to achieve a focal spot on the target, this device generates acoustics to probe under clothing. Acoustics, derived from nonlinear interactions of two beams with different frequencies, mix and penetrate clothing to hear what is inside. ...

  6. 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 ...

    SBC: SNVC, L.C.            Topic: N/A

    Legacy Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) has no cyber security ¿ messages are in clear text; messages are unauthenticated; management commands are issued via dial up ports protected by weak passwords and administered by poor password administration practices. This results in either inadequate security or a potential for denial of service. Based on the type of utility infrastructu ...

  8. Vulnerability Assessment Tool For Homeland Security


    Spatial Data Analytic Corporation`s (SPADAC) Vulnerability Assessment Tool For Homeland Security will be built on top of a Geospatial Information System (GIS) to provide a digital map that indicates areas of high concern. Spatial Feature Temporal Analysis will be used to allow for the capture and reuse of targeting signatures for any given group. The system will be built so that a signature can be ...

  9. CKM-based Management System for SCADA/DCS operations

    SBC: TecSec Incorporated            Topic: HSB041008

    TecSec’s CKM technology and tool kit will be used to develop an effective, easy to use, Secure Cryptographic Management System (SCMS) to protect SCADA systems/network. The management scheme will be designed to meet all unique requirements for SCADA/DCS operations, and provide a seamless migration of future protection schemes. The SCMS facilitates an RBAC methodology that can be set up to reflect ...

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


    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 ...
