  1. Dynamical Network Models for Mission Risk Assessment of Emergency Response Systems

    SBC: Achilles Heel Technologies, LLC            Topic: HSB0191007

    The integration of new cyber technologies in emergency response systems can allow profound improvements in system performance, but also expose the systems to systemic security and privacy risks.Thus, there is a critical need for design-time risk-assessment tools for emergency response systems, which allow evaluation and mitigation of threat impacts across their heterogeneous cyber and physical com ...

  2. Algorithms for Look-down Infrared Target Exploitation

    SBC: Signature Research, Inc.            Topic: 1

    Signature Research, Inc. (SGR) and Michigan Technological University (MTU) propose a Phase I STTR effort to develop a learning algorithm which exploits the spatio-spectral characteristics inherent within IR imagery and motion imagery.Our archive of modelled and labeled data sets will allow our team to thoroughly capture the variable elements that will drive machine learning performance.The overall ...

  3. Bilayer Nanofibers as Wearable Sensors for Detecting Fentanyl Compounds

    SBC: Vaporsens, Inc.            Topic: HSB0181001

    Drug overdose is now the leading cause of death for Americans under 50 years old, with fentanyl claiming more lives than any other drug.Alarmingly, the problem is increasing, with fentanyl overdoses claiming nearly twice as many lives in 2016 compared to 2015.In addition to users, first responders are at risk for coming into contact with fentanyl as they perform their duties.Fentanyl is extremely ...

  4. Wide-Area Flood Alert Sensor Network

    SBC: EVIGIA SYSTEMS INC            Topic: HSB0161005

    The proposed SBIR Phase I effort initiates the development of a highly-reliable, modular, and cost-effective wide-area flood sensor network system. Evigia leverages the EVX-1000 family of wireless mesh networked sensor system developed for remote rugged arctic oil-spill recovery operation to develop the proposed flood alert IoT system. The senor nodes operate on IEEE802.15.4 wireless physical laye ...

  5. Tamper-proof Electronic Bolt-Seal

    SBC: EVIGIA SYSTEMS INC            Topic: HSB0151002

    The proposed SBIR Phase I effort initiates the development of a low-cost tamper-proof electronic bolt seal that is easy to install, and provides electronic recording and reporting without increasing the inspection time at the customs and security checkpoints. The proposed e-seal addresses the present gap in seal protecting ALL the air and maritime containers and conveyances to extend protection b ...

  6. Portable High-Intensity X-Ray Source Based on a 10 MeV Superconducting Electron Linac

    SBC: Niowave, Inc.            Topic: HSB0141007

    In the post 9/11 security environment, rapid cargo inspection has become a high priority. Cargo scanning using either radiographic imaging or active interrogation for Special Nuclear Material (SNM) requires high energy and high intensity x-rays. High intensity x-ray sources are especially important for active interrogation techniques such as photo-fission, delayed neutron & gamma measurements, p ...

  7. A Rapid-to-Deploy Agent-Based Wireless Sensing Architecture for Autonomous Structural Collapse Prediction

    SBC: CIVIONICS, LLC            Topic: HSB0132004

    While most media attention in the wake of a terrorist attack, a natural disaster, or even a single building fire focuses rightly on the safety and wellbeing of the general public, one often overlooked aspect of these catastrophic events is the extreme risk taken by first responders who enter structures on the verge of collapse. For example, after the attacks on the World Trade Center on September ...

  8. RF Tracking in Wooded Areas

    SBC: Xandem Technology LLC            Topic: HSB0131001

    This SBIR Phase I project will investigate the possibility of using a network of low-cost, battery-powered radio frequency (RF) transceivers to detect, localize and track the movements of people illegally trying to enter the US borders through wooded areas. The system uses radio tomography (RT), i.e., the changes in radio signal strength (RSS) measurements on the static links of the network over t ...

  9. COTS MMW Radar for Tracking Persons within a Security Perimeter

    SBC: PSQUAREDT LLC            Topic: HSB0121005

    The implications of the proposed investigations are that radar systems already implemented for the automotive industry can be exploited, adapted and optimized for this application. These radar systems are inexpensive, of small size, employ advanced processing techniques which allow the tracking of threat targets, transmit low average power (10 milliwatts) and are proven to be people safe. We will ...

  10. Next Generation Textiles for Multi-Threat Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

    SBC: Wizbe Industries, Inc.            Topic: HSB0122005

    When responding to an incident, first responders often do not know what environments they will encounter at the incident scene. Although the garments that they are wearing may provide protection in their normal working environment, it may not be suited for unexpected conditions they encounter when they reach the scene of the incident, or as the incident progresses. Through this SBIR, Wizbe Innova ...
