  1. Helmet-Mounted Thermal Sensor for First Responder Burn-Saver Device

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: HSB0131003

    The personal protective equipment (PPE) worn by firefighters (turnout Gear, SCBA, helmet, etc.) protects the wearer against burns and hazardous environments. Unfortunately, they work so well that they decrease the firefighter's situational awareness, in particular their ability to notice rapidly increasing temperatures. Although current thermal sensor technologies (generally built in to the Pers ...

  2. GPS JLOC Sensor Suite for Critical Infrastructure

    SBC: NAVSYS CORPORATION, THE            Topic: HSB0131004

    Timing and position data from civil GPS receivers have become integral to the operation of many of the Nation's critical infrastructures. Through the Patriot Watch architecture, DHS is coordinating efforts to identify, locate, and attribute domestic GPS interference, maintain a central database for reports of domestic and international interference to civil use of GPS and its augmentations, and n ...

  3. Practical Roots of Trust for Mobile Devices

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: HSB0132002

    To meet the critical security needs of the Department of Homeland Security and others, we propose two methods for providing a secure root of trust for mobile devices. One method is designed to integrate as easily into existing systems, while the other requires deeper integration but provides correspondingly stronger security. The keys to our work are practicality and integration: practicality to e ...

  4. Flowing Water Optical Power Meter for Laser Measurements

    SBC: High Precision Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    High Precision Devices, Inc. (HPD) proposes to use the Phase I SBIR as a vehicle to develop and market a commercially viable 25kW flowing water optical power meter (FWOPM) for industrial, research, and government applications. Building upon existing and fundamentally sound NIST design, and without sacrificing quality or accuracy, HPD will reduce costs and increase manufacturability using best prac ...

  5. Delivering a Solar Flare Forecast Model that Improves Flare Forecast (Timing and Magnitude) Accuracy by 25%

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: 943W

    Many activities and technological systems prevalent in today’s society – air traffic control and air travel, the power grids, communications, deep-water drilling operations, human spaceflight – are vulnerable to the effects of sudden flares from our Sun. Because the propagation speed for flare emission is the speed of light, it is necessary to forecast these events in order to mitigate thei ...

  6. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millimeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 941D

    In the proposed effort, we will leverage this extensive experience and capabilities to realize a frequency agile mmW radiometer that can cover the range of DC-110 GHz and can be scaled to DC-200 GHz under Phase II. Ours is a photonic system that multiplies and up-coverts a low-frequency reference signal onto an optical carrier (laser) using EO modulation, then uses the modulation sidebands to inj ...

  7. Wireless Transducer Interface Module for Smart Sensor Network with Localization Capability

    SBC: Complete Test and Measurement Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Homeland security and first responders need high quality & timely information upon which to make critical decisions. In a number of homeland security scenarios, the information will be a distillation of data gathered from an array of sensors. Such data can consist of temperature, vibration and the like along with the position of each sensor. This project proposes meeting this need through an innov ...

  8. Miniature Quickscan Receiver

    SBC: AEROSTREAM COMMUNICATIONS CORPORATION            Topic: SOCOM04004

    A hardware platform is proposed for a low-cost miniature quickscan receiver to operate in the range of 30.000 MHz to 3.000 GHz. The platform consists of a multiplicity of Digital Signal Processors connected in a microprocessor array to perform detection and monitoring of battlefield radio activity.

  9. Compact Eyesafe Doppler Lidar Wind Sensor for UAV Leaflet Delivery System

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: SOCOM04007

    USSOCOM requires a real-time wind-profiling sensor to support precision air delivery of PSYOP leaflets and other cargo from the WSADS Leaflet Delivery System (LDS) UAV without exposing personnel to combat loss. The WSADS-LDS platform limits sensor volume to one cubic foot and weight to 30 pounds. Coherent Technologies, Inc (CTI) proposes to develop a design for a prototype eyesafe Doppler lidar ...

  10. SOFC Auxiliary Power Source for Surveillance Operations

    SBC: Mesoscopic Devices LLC            Topic: SOCOM05001

    Special operations forces use special combat craft for surveillance missions. To enable stealth while on station, these boats require quiet auxiliary power sources. Large battery banks are currently used, but these batteries are heavy and limit the mission duration. Fuel cells have been proposed as possible quiet power sources, but existing systems, e.g. Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel cells, ...
