  1. FoxHunt: GPS Disruption Detection and Geolocation System

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: HSB0131004

    A number of civil sectors, including energy, transportation, emergency, communications, and banking, use GPS to perform critically important functions. This is a concern due to the fragility of the GPS signal, and vulnerability to attacks or disruptions. The problem has been studied to greater or lesser degree by sector. At this point however it remains unclear exactly how vulnerable these sectors ...

  2. Burn-Saver Device

    SBC: Innova Designs            Topic: HSB0131003

    The technical problem addressed is implementation of a device called the Burn Saver Device (BSD) that can be attached to a firefighter's helmet to provide an early detection system to warn the firefighter of rapidly developing and/or unsafe thermal conditions in his/her immediate environment that might not be immediately evident inside protective gear. The specific innovation and the focus of the ...

  3. Portable Imager for Stand-off Detection of Person-Bourne Bulk Military and Homemade Explosives

    SBC: Polestar Technologies, Inc.            Topic: HSB0121003

    Title: Portable Imager for Stand-off Detection of Person-borne Bulk Military and Homemade Explosives. The overall goal of this SBIR proposal is to develop a portable system for stand-off detection of concealed explosives. The system will produce images positively identifying the presence of explosives and have the ability to detect and identify different types of military explosives (like TNT, C ...

  4. Remote Identification and Tracking of Non-Cooperative Subjects (REMIT-NCS)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: HSB0121005

    The ability to reliably track and recognize individuals inside a security perimeter is a critical component of next-generation distributed security systems. While state-of-the-art surveillance systems can reliably track pedestrians in sparse, static environments with minor occlusions and few moving subjects, performance degrades rapidly as scene complexity and crowd density increase. The problem b ...

  5. Objective X-ray Image Display Evaluation (OXIDE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: HSB0122003

    Transportation Security Officers (TSOs) are tasked with exploiting X-ray inspection systems to detect potential threats. To ensure efficient operation and the safety of the traveling public, TSOs must maintain a 100% probability of detection (Pd) while minimizing screening time. To achieve these objectives, X-ray inspection systems must operate in accordance with manufacturer specifications, and b ...

  6. Lean Software Roots of Trust

    SBC: BlueRISC Inc            Topic: HSB0132002

    In this proposal, we outline a project to research and develop a lean, fully-software-based Mobile Trusted Module (SW-MTM) for mobile devices. The goal of the proposed solution is to provide the required Roots of Trust (RoTs) and trusted security services via a fully software implementation while maintaining the heightened level of assurance typically only achieved through additional, security-ce ...

  7. System for Advanced Warning of Structural Collapse

    SBC: Summit Safety, Inc            Topic: HSB0132004

    This project will finalize the development of an advanced warning system for structural collapse for both new and existing buildings, particularly during structural fires. The project will utilize a non-contact ultrasonic sensor originally developed under NIST SBIR Topic 9.14 and extensively tested at Underwriters Laboratories (UL) under actual fire conditions through a follow-on DHS SBIR program. ...

  8. Detection of Counterfeit Commodity Goods

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: HSB0132005

    The program will provide methods for detection of counterfeit consumer goods along the entire supply chain. In Phase I, key stakeholders in federal agencies will share their knowledge and describe the critical requirements necessary for successful detection techniques. An inventory of high impact authentic/counterfeit products and materials will be generated. Using TIAX's Macro to Micro Assessmen ...

  9. Establishment of Scientific and Industrial Base for Production of High Purity Precursor Materials for SrI2:Eu and CLYC

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: 111001

    Successful growth of novel halide scintillators SrI2:Eu and CLYC depends on a supply of highly pure precursor materials. CapeSym and SAFC have partnered to develop a thorough understanding of the factors that influence purity, and techniques to reduce these impurity levels in SrI2:Eu and CLYC precursors. Novel processing and crystal growth experiments at CapeSym, and materials characterization at ...

  10. Defect Engineering of TlBr for Room Temperature Radiation Detection

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: 121004

    TlBr is a promising gamma radiation semiconductor detector material primarily due to its high Z component and high density. TlBr detectors, however, suffer from polarization at room temperature and degrade rapidly under applied bias. Polarization is associated with ionic conductivity in this material. This proposal is focused on controlling the point, chemical, and crystalline defects in TlBr to m ...
