  1. GPS EMitter LOCalization (GEMLOC)

    SBC: Coherent Navigation, Inc.            Topic: HSB0131004

    In response to DHS SBIR Topic H-SB013.1-004 we propose to investigate the development of a next-generation, tiered, inexpensive, light-weight, low-power, high-performance GPS emitter detection and localization system. The system will provide high-accuracy (high-sensitivity), real-time or near-real-time estimates of position, velocity, transmit frequency, and transmit power level of multiple, movin ...

  2. Civilian Interference Detection and Estimation Receiver (CIDER)

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: HSB0131004

    Toyon has teamed with two utilities to survey the use of civilian GPS receivers in the energy and communication sectors, and to determine their vulnerabilities to intentional interference, including narrowband and wideband jamming, spoofers, repeaters, and RF-based 'software attacks.' As part of the survey, the characteristics and weaknesses of the deployed civilian receivers will be determined an ...

  3. RF Sensing of Personnel in Wooded Areas

    SBC: TrellisWare Technologies, Inc.            Topic: HSB0131001

    Perhaps because it is the world's longest undefended border, smuggling is endemic across the our northern frontier with Canada. Since a 5,525 mile border cannot be effectively patrolled on foot, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) must rely on technology to detect and track smugglers. Radio tomographic imaging (RTI) is an emerging device-free passive (DfP) localization technology that could ...

  4. Hardening for Commercially Available Hand Held Computing and Communications Devices for First Responders

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: HSB0122004

    First responders operate in emergency situations that require ruggedized gear that can survive temperature, impact, and moisture. Utilizing the communication devices that first responders already carry on them has many benefits including: always on-scene, reduced cost of distributing equipment, elimination of training requirements, and many others. Ruggedizing commercial hand held computing and ...

  5. ISOLATION AND IDENTIFICATION OF THE OPTIMUM CLANDESTINE CURRENCY DETECTOR

    SBC: KWJ Engineering Incorporated            Topic: HSB0132001

    KWJ leverages its extensive experience to develop an automatic clandestine currency detection system (CCDS) for screening smuggled money in DHS real world applications. The ideal such system is equipped with probe (sampling, pre-concentration and detection), sensor array detection system or analytical instrument combination, analysis hardware and software, and communications components. The propos ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Software Based Roots of Trust for Enhanced Mobile Device Security

    SBC: RAM LABORATORIES            Topic: HSB0132002

    Mobile devices require security features that are utilized by application developers and users to ensure secure communication and commerce. Existing features on mobile hardware are often considered proprietary between the manufacturer and the telecommunications provider, rendering them unavailable for external use. Current works-around involve adding trusted hardware to the device, which increases ...

  8. RadMATE- a Mobile RAD/NUC Reachback App

    SBC: Spectral Labs Incorporated            Topic: 121003

    The risk of an adversary mounting a Radiological or Nuclear (RAD/NUC) attack on the United States remains one of the greatest threats to our Nation. The Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO) has identified an opportunity for exploiting rapidly emerging Smart Phone technology as one of many tools to counter this threat by giving Law Enforcement Officers (LEOs) and Emergency Responders (ERs) supp ...

  9. Bragg Grating Enhanced Narrowband Single Photon SPDC Source

    SBC: Gener8, Inc.            Topic: 9010177TT

    Spontaneous Parametric Down conversion (SPDC) is currently an active research area in quantum communications (QC) to develop entangled single photon sources. However, the bandwidth of current SPDC sources is too broad for many applications. NIST researchers have modeled a solution to this problem that reduces the bandwidth by >50. We proposed to fabricate a prototype of the NIST device by developi ...

  10. Digital Micromirror Device Detection Scheme for Transmission Scanning Electron Microscopy

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Accurate quantitative characterization of materials is crucial for a wide range of industrial and research applications. New transmission scanning electron microscopy (t-SEM) methods have the potential for high-resolution imaging similar to transmission electron microscopy (TEM) with a less expensive, faster, and more widely available SEM system. To exploit the full potential of these imaging tech ...
