  1. Low-Shot Detection in Remote Sensing Imagery

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: NGA172002

    Toyon Research Corporation proposes to research and develop algorithms for low-shot object detection, adapting popular techniques to address the complexities inherent in ATR for remote sensing. Traditional object detection algorithms rely on large corpora of data which may not be available for more exotic targets (such as foreign military assets), and therefore, traditional Convolutional Neural Ne ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Miniature Intelligent Spectral Analyzer

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: HSB0181003

    To address the DHS need to rapidly detect radio interference of critical radio frequency (RF) communications channels utilized by first responders, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Miniature Intelligent Spectral Analyzer (MISCAN) device based on a combination of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) electronic components in a custom software-defined configuration along with in ...

  4. Automated and Scalable Analysis of Mobile and IoT Device Firmware

    SBC: RAM LABORATORIES            Topic: HSB0181008

    As Internet of Things (IoT) and mobile devices become increasingly popular and widely used, the security of the firmware running on these devices is paramount.However, due to the lack of an efficient and scalable analysis framework, combined with the increasing pressure to get products to market as quickly as possible, the software running on these devices is never properly checked for security vu ...

  5. Wearable Fentanyl Analog Sensor

    SBC: Polestar Technologies, Inc.            Topic: HSB0181001

    A Phase I SBIR is proposed for the development of a wearable sensor to protect law enforcement and first responders from inadvertent exposure to potentially toxic levels of fentanyl and/or fentanyl analogs.The Phase I project will demonstrate the ability of the new sensor to selectively detect the presence of fentanyl analog vapors from solid samples or air-borne particulates in concentrations bel ...

  6. Rapid Tox-Based Wearable Sensing Badge for Solid Aerosol and Contact Exposure to Fentanyls

    SBC: Nano Terra, Inc.            Topic: HSB0181001

    Nano Terra proposes to develop a low-cost and wearable detector badge that quickly and selec-tively alerts the user to the presence of solid fentanyl aerosols with an audible and visual alert. Current commercial fentanyl and opioid detectors are bulky and costly and have unsuitably-high limits of detection. Nano Terra will leverage their expertise in ultra-sensitive dosimetric detection of threat ...

  7. Advanced Receiver for Distressed Emitter Localization (ARDEL)

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: HSB0181002

    A majority of U.S. adults own a cell phone and are inclined to use it in emergency situations to call for assistance. Unfortunately, in areas where the density of cell towers is low, such as in rural and off-shore environments, the ability of the wireless network to geolocate the origin of the wireless signal is poor to non-existent. Under the proposed effort, Toyon Research Corporation will devel ...

  8. Remote Phone Locator for Improved Emergency Rescue

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: HSB0181002

    To address the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) need for a cell phone location finder for maritime and remote search and rescue (SAR), Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new REmote Phone Locator for Improved Emergency Rescue (REPLIER). REPLIER leverages novel techniques recently developed at POC to extend the range of cellular communications and integrate commercial cellu ...

  9. Fusion of VMS and Radiation Sensor Data for Real-Time Identification and Tracking

    SBC: Silverside Detectors Inc.            Topic: HSB0181010

    Traditionally, implementation of dedicated, continuous nuclear and radiological monitoring systems for identifying and tracking nuclear materials out of regulatory control is associated with high operational burdens. Although video and images from cameras are helpful in assessing threats, the raw, unstructured data require time-intensive human interaction to extract the relevant actionable informa ...

  10. Tracking Nuclear Threats in Security Camera Networks (TNT-SCAN)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: HSB0181010

    The implementation of continuous nuclear and radiological monitoring systems enabling the automatic detection and tracking of potential nuclear threats is traditionally associated with a high operational burden. Sensors typically have to be monitored by dedicated personnel, who must investigate detection events in a timely manner; however, high nuisance alarm rates can rapidly overwhelm already-ta ...
