  1. Virtualization and Static Analysis to Detect Memory Overwriting Vulnerabilities

    SBC: Zephyr Software, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Memory overwriting vulnerabilities (buffer overflow, format string, double free, integer overflow, etc.) continue to plague commercial and government software, providing avenues for attackers to gain unauthorized control over computer systems. Testing tools are needed that will find vulnerabilities so that fixes can be applied before deployment. Existing vulnerability analyses often rely exclusive ...

  2. Acoustic Noise Cancellation with Remote Microphones for First Responders

    SBC: Telacoustics LLC            Topic: HSB092006

    This proposal covers the development of audio processing technology that enables improved communications capability among first responders. The goal is to improve the SNR of the audio signal that is input to the radio or other communication system when the user is in a noisy environment. The technologies to be investigated include the use of multiple microphones for acoustic beam-steering, new tec ...

  3. Probabilistic Framework for CBRN Terrorism Risk Assessment and Decision Support

    SBC: COGNITECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research will develop a probabilistic decision analysis methodology and software framework applicable to Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) threats and incidents. The software prototype developed in the Phase I research will include tools to enable probabilistic assessments of risk, analysis of sensitivities, and risk management strategies that can compare the impac ...

  4. Current Event Future Outcome Framework

    SBC: High Performance Technologies, Inc.            Topic: HSB081003

    Many government agencies share the need to determine the best courses of action that diminish the long range threat, vulnerability or impact from a potential event that affects our domestic population or infrastructure. We propose to develop a functional prototype of the Current Event - Future Outcome (CEFO) software we described in Phase I, which will leverage the existing wealth of domain-specif ...

  5. Intelligent Bio-Adaptive Team Training System

    SBC: Human Bionics            Topic: N/A

    As we face new formidable challenges in the area of global asymmetric warfare, the DHS must be able to rapidly train and test those individuals responsible for screening of persons that may wish to bring harm to the U.S. and its allies. Thus there is a vast need to train individuals faster and to improve training outcomes, possibly by training in teams of screeners working together to improve thei ...

  6. Run Time Tools Output Integration Framework

    SBC: Data Access Technologies Inc            Topic: N/A

    This proposal addresses the key issue in the normalization of software assurance information: how to integrate the vulnerability findings reported by multiple vulnerability detection tools. The normalization will provide normalized, consistent reporting on type of identified weakness (alignment with CWE) as well as normalized, consistent reporting on location and trace of identified weakness withi ...

  7. Collaborative Human-Animal Discrimination for Unattended Ground Sensors

    SBC: INNOVATIVE WIRELESS TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Effective human-animal discrimination happens collectively at all levels of an UGS system. The ability to classify a target from ootsteps alone as human versus non-human given a single modality and sensor is challenging, thus a collaborative network effort increases the system Probability of Detection (Pd) and minimizes Probability of False Alarm (Pfa). IWT proposes leveraging inter-UGS communicat ...

  8. SNP-based Desktop Biometric Device for Rapid, Low-cost Verification of Identity and Kinship and Confirmation of Identity by Physical Traits

    SBC: PARABON COMPUTATION, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DNA has the potential to provide vast amounts of biometric information. However, the current method of analyzing DNA - which produces biometric signatures from sequences of "junk" DNA called short tandem repeats (STRs) - falls far short of realizing this potential. STR signatures are information-poor and the technology required to produce them is terminally incapable of supporting fast, automated ...

  9. Tanker Survey Vehicle

    SBC: PROGENY SYSTEMS CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    The Department of Homeland Security is responsible for maintaining the integrity of our borders and preventing attacks within our country through the use of trade and immigration laws coupled with various tools to monitor for the threat of illegal cross-border activity. This includes numerous points of entry over land, air, and sea. As the threat grows increasingly sophisticated and innovative, so ...

  10. Modular Frequency Extenders for Vector Network Analyzers

    SBC: Virginia Diodes, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Modular frequency extenders will be developed for Vector Network Analyzers to extend their frequency range throughout the band from 100 GHz through 1THz with excellent dynamic range (100dB) and the capability for full four port measurements. The extenders will rely on VDI's full waveguide band frequency multipliers and mixers that utilize planar, integrated Schottky diode circuits. The modular nat ...
