  2. 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 ...

  3. DynaTrust

    SBC: HexEffect, LLC            Topic: HSB0132002

    HexEffect, LLC will use its experience with both offensive and defensive computing technologies to develop a software-only root of trust (RoT) system called DynaTrust. The system will be deployable on commercial mobile devices running the Android operating system. The purpose of DynaTrust is to allow trusted execution and data storage on widely available low cost and legacy commercial devices. Dy ...

  4. 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. ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Integration of Inertial Measurement Data for Improved Localization and Tracking of Radiation Sources

    SBC: Passport Systems, Inc.            Topic: 121002

    The work proposed will develop and implement commercially viable gradient detection methods and algorithms for localizing radiation sources using a single non‐directional detector. Exploitation of gradients introduced by source‐to‐detector distance – through natural or deliberate motion – and those introduced by body‐shielding will allow for enhanced localization and tracking of source ...

  9. TlBr Spectrometers with Improved Long Term Stability at Room Temperature

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 121004

    The ideal semiconductor detector for the nuclear non-proliferation application should have good energy resolution, high detection efficiency, compact size, light weight, easy portability, low power requirements and low cost. In the proposed effort, we plan to continue our development of thallium bromide (TlBr), a wide band gap semiconductor that recently has shown great promise as a gamma-ray dete ...

  10. 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 ...
