  1. Provably Unclonable Functions on Re-configurable Devices

    SBC: Potomac Research LLC            Topic: A18BT001

    Physically UnclonableFunctions (PUFs) have been proposed as central building blocks in cryptographic protocols and security architectures. PUFs are physical devices that exhibit a challenge/responsebehavior: when presented with a challenge, the device produces a response that is a random function of both the challenge and the physical properties of the device.In contrast to most digital designs, i ...

  2. Marburg Virus Prophylactic Medical Countermeasure

    SBC: MAPP BIOPHARMACEUTICAL, INC.            Topic: CBD18A002

    There are currently no vaccines or therapeutics available for Marburg Virus Disease (MVD). Given the specter of weaponization and the terriblemorbidity and high mortality rate of MVD, this represents a critical threat to the operational readiness of the Warfighter. While traditionalvaccines have proven to be a huge contribution to public health, they do have some limitations especially in the cont ...

  4. Hybrid DNN-based Transfer Learning and CNN-based Supervised Learning for Object Recognition in Multi-modal Infrared Imagery

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 1

    On this effort Toyon Research Corp. and The Pennsylvania State University are developing deep learning-based algorithms for object recognition and new class discovery in look-down infrared (IR) imagery. Our approach involves the development of a hybrid classifier that exploits both transfer learning and semi-supervised paradigms in order to maintain good generalization accuracy, especially when li ...

  6. Virus-Like Particle Based pan-Marburgvirus Vaccine

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: CBD18A002

    Marburg virus (MARV) is a filamentous enveloped non-segmented negative sense RNA virus. This viruse is considered to be extremelydangerous with case fatality rates as high as 88-90%. Extensive efforts have gone towards effective vaccines for MARV prevention, however,none have been successfully established as licensed vaccines. Glycoprotein (GP) is the only surface protein of MARV. There are substa ...

  7. Micromachined, Three-Dimensionally Integrated RF or RF-Optoelectronic Circuit Components

    SBC: EMAG TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "The objective of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) project is to develop novel high performance three-dimensionally integrated package designs for optical modulator applications. There are many optoelectronic device designs that show greatpromise in the research lab, but have demonstrated degraded response once packaged. The proposed effort will develop advanced packaging methods tha ...

  8. Field-Enhanced Carbon Monoxide Tolerance of Polymer Electrolyte Membrane (PEM) Fuel Cells

    SBC: FuelCell Energy, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "To be commercially competitive, PEM fuel cells have to be able to run on readily available fuels. Fuel reformers are practical, but fuel cell anode catalysts are severely poisoned by small quantities of carbon monoxide from the reformer. Despite mucheffort invested into increasing CO tolerance, desired performance levels have not been achieved.Recent data has shown great promise in mitigating t ...

  9. Analysis and Characterization of Pattern Classifiers

    SBC: Frontier Technology Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Frontier Technology, Inc. (FTI) and University of Florida (UF) propose to develop designs for automatically-generated statistical pattern recognition systems (GASPs) that can classify uncooperative targets among time-varying natural and manmadebackgrounds. We also propose to analyze the performance of the envisioned GASPs to:(a) covertly acquire feature data (e.g., statistical, spectral, and spat ...

  10. THz Differential Absorption Radar for Bioparticulate Detection

    SBC: Physical Domains            Topic: N/A

    Recent measurements of the electromagnetic transmission through bacillus subtillus, an anthrax facsimile, have revealed absorption resonances in the THz region. A system-level analysis previously carried out by the proposer has shown that at least oneof the resonances (centered at 14.05 cm-1, or 421 GHz) is located at a frequency of low enough atmospheric absorption to be detectable by an activ ...
