  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Development of a Long Term pH and pCO2 Lagrangian Drifter

    SBC: SUNBURST SENSORS, LLC            Topic: 831C

    Quantifying oceanic CO2 uptake and ocean acidification and understanding their impact on global climate and ocean ecology are key goals of NOAA’s climate change research programs. NOAA’s request for Development of a long-term Lagrangian pH and pCO2 drifter (SBIR Subtopic 8.3.1C) aims to address these goals by developing technology that measures both pCO2 and pH that can be widely deployed in t ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Fabrication of Advanced Waveguide Structures for Efficient Violet and Near-UV Generation

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR Phase I effort will establish the feasibility of fabricating advanced waveguide structures in potassium titanyl phosphate (KTP) capable of efficiently generating 25 to 40 mW of frequency converted light in the 395 to 480 nm. The key innovation in this effort is to utilize KTP waveguides in a single-pass frequency doubling device to efficiently produce the desired laser wavelengths and po ...
