  1. Maritime Surveillance Sensing Using Underwater High Frequency Acoustic Communication Receivers

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM06013

    High-frequency acoustic modems are required to provide undersea communication networks to support covert surveillance operations. These modems can also be used as platforms for compact, low power surveillance sensors and processing. A natural first step would be to integrate a capability for passive acoustic detection of ships and submarines. A multi-phase effort is proposed for integrating passiv ...

  5. Robust Autonomous Power Generation for UGS Employing High Efficiency Thermoelectrics

    SBC: Biophan Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    One of the greatest challenges facing UGS networks is the availability of power to run critical processes. Most current technologies employ off-the-shelf batteries which require replacement every 6mnths or so. Battery replacement in a UGS deployment for border security is not only costly, but in some terrains nearly impossible. Ideally, UGS field components would harness power from the environment ...

  6. Secure Inter-organizational Network Boundary Assurance Device (SINBAD)

    SBC: Dolphin Technology, Inc.            Topic: HSB061007

    This effort proposes to analyze and develop a design for the Secure Inter-organizational Network Boundary Assurance Device (SINBAD). SINBAD will leverage capabilities and leverage lessons from guard technology to yield an enhanced boundary control and inspection capability suitable for Homeland Security organizations exchanging inter-organizational email with attachments. It will 1) prevent improp ...

  7. Incident Surveillance Management System (ISMS)

    SBC: Geospatial Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Geospatial Systems and Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) have teamed with Leica Geosystems to develop an Incident Surveillance Management System (ISMS) that can ingest data from remote sensing systems, reduce that data, and deliver information products to decision makers in near real time. The information products are consistent with accepted practice within the NIMS community and utilize st ...

  9. Rotary-Wing UAV as On-Demand Sensor Platform for Aircraft Operators

    SBC: Lite Machines Corporation            Topic: SOCOM05011

    During warfare, strikes made with surgical precision by Special Operations Forces reduce collateral damage and loss of life among non-combatants and have become the expectation of our war-fighters. Such strikes, however, require the ability to survey the target area in a timely fashion and guide munitions accurately. High altitude photographs taken by satellites and orbiting aircraft often lack ...

  10. Vertical Wind Profile Data Collection Using Laser Technology on Unmanned Delivery Platforms.

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM04007

    The current project will develop and demonstrate a prototype compact, power-efficient all-fiber lidar unit for wind profiling on board UAV's and other aircraft. The system leverages Oceanit's current fiber-laser based lidar development efforts. A unique design provides a rugged system with no moving parts and little maintenance requirements. Efforts in the current project will include prototype s ...
