  1. Assess Ability to use Eye Tracking and Pupil Dialtion to Determine Intent to Deceive- Phase II

    SBC: Bio-Behavior Analysis Systems, LLC            Topic: HSB081001

    We propose to run 3 experiments to refine and utilize measures of oculomotor activity and pupil diameter change to assess an individual's malicious or deceptive intent. We also propose to concurrently develop the software and determine the hardware necessary for online, real-time assessment of malintent based on prior research results and the results of the proposed experiments. In addition to ocu ...

  2. A Certifiable Federated Identity System for Cross-Agency Collaboration

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Department of Homeland Security's charter has a fundamental requirement to collaborate with other government agencies. Secure collaboration on this scale requires strong identity management which can "vouch for" DHS personnel working with other agencies, and makes it possible to provide DHS resources to individuals in other agencies whose work requires it. We propose the development of a reu ...

  3. Web-Based Computer Simulation of Radiological Detection Scenario Training (RDST)

    SBC: Crisis Simulations International, LLC            Topic: N/A

    With the range and variety of radiation detectors that exist and the continuing threat of a radiological disaster in the future, the need for training of first responders and personnel in the front lines of interdiction is extraordinary and daunting. It is daunting because of the number of people across the nation that must be trained initially and who must continually maintain their training to b ...

  4. Wearable Thermoelectric Generators for First Responders

    SBC: Perpetua Power Source Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR Phase I will model and physically demonstrate wearable, small factor, and lightweight thermoelectric generator prototypes powered by human body heat. The project will make use of Perpetua`s novel Flexible Thermoelectric Film technology to yield higher voltages and power from small active areas. End devices will be in wearable form factors, including a flexible button array that can be in ...

  5. Dynamic Light Scattering Instrumentation Using Field Programmable Gate Array-based Digital Signal Processing

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    An existing low-cost FPGA-based processing platform will be demonstrated with fiber-coupling to single-photon detectors, to perform photon-arrival time stamping with

  6. High Efficiency, Large-area, 1550 nm InGaAs Photodiodes

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A stable, well characterized InGaAs materials growth and photodetector fabrication process will be used to fabricate matched photodiodes optimized for balanced homodyne detection. The 1-mm-diameter p-i-n photodetectors will be manufactured back-illuminated with a 5-micron absorber, allowing residual light to reflect off the front-side metal to make a double pass through the active layer. Ultra-hig ...

  7. Efficient Low-Dark-Count Detector for Photon Counting

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Voxtel has demonstrated efficient high-speed photon counting with thresholded linear-mode avalanche photodiode (APD) receivers using multi-gain-stage InGaAs/InAIAs APDs. In contrast to Geiger APDs, thresholded photon-counting linear APD receivers are thought not to suffer afterpulsing, and can support maximum count rates (MCR) up to 2 or 3 orders of magnitude faster than Geiger APDs. However, the ...

  8. Electrostatic Precipitation for High Efficient Aerosol Collection into Low Analysis Volumes

    SBC: Sceptor Industries, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    New sampling methods are now available and offer greater sample collection efficiency, smaller sample volumes and significantly reduced power consumption in a much more compact design. Technologies such as electrostatic precipitation (EP) have demonstrated over 90% collection efficiency for particles in the 1 to 10 micron size range. EP collectors can be made very small and compact and require les ...
