  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Acoustic Vector Sensor

    SBC: PROGENY SYSTEMS CORPORATION            Topic: HSB0112001

    U.S. Customs and Border Protection wants to extend unattended ground sensor (UGS) functionality to provide a real-time capability to track targets of interest. Progeny will develop Acoustic Vector Sensor (AVS) as a low-cost and low-power augment sensor to track airborne targets, with a small covert form factor and connecting to other UGS with a standard serial data and power interface. AVS has a c ...

  8. Low-power Tri-axial Acoustic Sensor

    SBC: AEROGAGE CORP.            Topic: HSB0112001

    The objective of this topic is to develop an affordable directional acoustic sensor that can be employed with a UGS unit to track targets of interest. The proposed approach is to use an array of three microphones to generate accurate estimates of bearing (azimuth and elevation) of different types of acoustic sources, including aircraft, ground vehicles, and personnel. The proposal includes a novel ...

  9. Highly Absorptive Nanostructured Chemical Wipe

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: HSB0112002

    Wipe sampling provides a convenient method for determining if a surface is contaminated by chemical warfare agents (CWAs). In wipe sampling, a pad is wetted with solvent and wiped over the surface of interest. The pad is then extracted and the extract is analyzed for the presence of the contaminant. Many of the surfaces that are sampled in an emergency response, cleanup or clearance scenario are p ...

  10. Improved Wipes for Surface Sampling of Chemical Agents on Porous Materials

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: HSB0112002

    In this effort, TIAX LLC will evaluate the innovative combination of commercially available materials that will permit the efficient and reproducible extraction, collection, concentration, recovery and analysis of trace low volatility chemicals that may be present in porous surfaces such as concrete, brick, tile, or painted wallboard. This work builds upon the demonstrated ability of the materials ...
