  1. Precision Information Environment for Collaborative Emergency Support (PIECES)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: HSB0101003

    Decision makers responding to homeland security incidents must rapidly integrate and manage dynamic, time-sensitive information from many heterogeneous and multimodal information sources. Responders access this information through numerous software applications, all while attempting to collaborate in real-time. Based on the results of our Phase I design effort, we propose to develop and evaluate a ...

  2. Magnetically Switchable Explosives Vapor Isolator(1001-687)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: HSB0101004

    The proposed work details a molecular recognition based explosives pre-concentration and sampling system which can be coupled to a wide variety of current and future commercially available sensors. The system works by initially isolating and concentrating specific explosives from a sample stream through a novel, robust and tunable molecular recognition system. The concentrated molecules are rele ...

  3. Smart Chart AIS

    SBC: Technology Systems Inc.            Topic: HSB0111001

    The ability to track small vessels is critical to national security, but not easily accomplished due to the sheer volume of craft and the range of environments which they operate within. The introduction of smart-phones with location, orientation, camera, and Internet capabilities is enabling collaborative applications that have strong locative potential. These devices are capable of acting as bas ...

  4. Public Safety Voice Service Solution for Broadband Wireless Infrastructure and Handsets

    SBC: octoScope, Inc.            Topic: HSB0111003

    We will develop PS-specific voice service and system requirements based on the input from the PS community and will design an innovative and practical voice service architecture that can interwork with existing public safety communication systems, including Project 25 LMR, 4.9 GHz WiMAX and commercial cellular networks. Our architecture enables the use of cost-effective commercial handsets while s ...

  5. Monolithic, Electronically and Widely Tunable Quantum Cascade Laser Sources

    SBC: EOS Photonics            Topic: HSB0111004

    EOS Photonics, in collaboration with the group of Prof. Capasso at Harvard University, proposes to develop a novel widely tunable, high power quantum cascade laser source for remote sensing applications. The tuning mechanism relies on the integration of intersubband tuning elements fabricated monolithically with DBR gratings to ensure electrically-controlled wavelength tuning over a wide wavelengt ...

  6. Monolithic Widely Tunable Quantum Cascade Laser

    SBC: Maxion Technologies, Inc.            Topic: HSB0111004

    Maxion Technologies proposes to develop a robust, high power, monolithic, widely tunable Quantum Cascade (QC) laser for use in explosives and chemical sensing applications. We plan to implement a multi-section QC laser to create a monolithically tunable device, similar to those demonstrated in the near IR for telecommunications. This laser will be tuned through application of voltage to tuning ele ...

  7. Monolithic Electronically Tunable M/LWIR Laser Source

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: HSB0111004

    Chemical sensing for explosives and toxic compounds requires a robust, high average power, and fast electronically tunable Mid-and Long-Wave InfraRed (M/LWIR) laser source. We propose to develop a widely tunable Quantum Cascade Laser (QCL) with high spectral modulation bandwidth and fast random access to any wavelength within the tuning range. The technology is based on a proprietary monolithic de ...

  8. Mitigation of Contact Lenses, Eye Surgery, Pupil Dilation, and Other Challenges in Iris Recognition

    SBC: PROGENY SYSTEMS CORPORATION            Topic: HSB0111005

    Iris recognition is an established and successful biometric technology. It is used in clearing travelers in the UK, for border control in the UAE, and as a part of India`s Unique ID program. However, there are still significant challenges to be addressed as iris recognition matures to successfully handle ongoing national-scale applications. Our recent work has documented challenges involving pupil ...

  9. Identification of Test Materials and Test Plan for Improved Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus Face Piece Lenses

    SBC: MPR Associates, Inc.            Topic: HSB0111006

    Currently, SCBA lenses are made from high-heat polycarbonate with a maximum service temperature rating of 275 deg F to 383 deg F. However, first responders may encounter temperatures due to fire reaching 1000 deg F to 1400 deg F at face level with a heat flux density of about 2.2 W/sq-cm. Developing a more durable, high-heat resistant lens will significantly improve firefighter safety and enable f ...

  10. Network Survivability, Recovery & Reconstitution (NS2R)

    SBC: Centripetal Networks, Inc.            Topic: HSB0102003

    Centripetal Networks, Inc. (CNI) will research and develop a Network Protection System (NPS) capable of providing a Network Survivability, Recovery, and Reconstitution (NS2R) service requested by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). NS2R will help the DHS achieve its mission to secure, protect, and defend US Internet infrastructure. This NPS builds on CNI's successful completion of the SBIR ...
