  1. SWIFT ARROW STTR Phase 2

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: OSD12AU3

    In Dense Urban Environments (DUEs), a new and evolving battlefield, the ability to detect and respond quickly to multiple threats in complex environments (e.g., snipers on rooftops or in windows) is critical and is extremely important to both civilian and military tactical needs. Response latency in the critical moments after the beginning of an attack can significantly increase casualties. SWIFT ...

  2. Natural Rubber Production

    SBC: Edison Agrosciences, Inc.            Topic: ST18C001

    Natural rubber is an essential manufacturing material that possesses performance properties that are superior to synthetic rubber for many product applications. However, natural rubber production is limited to a single species (rubber tree) in a limited geographic area (Southeast Asia) and is predicted to be incapable of meeting future demand. Producing rubber from another commercial crop such as ...

  3. Design Tools for Hardware Trojan Detection and Mitigation

    SBC: BlueRISC Inc            Topic: SB173004

    With the increasing complexity of the modern semiconductor supply chain and increasing prevalence of the fabless manufacturing model, the hardware security and design integrity of integrated circuits are threatened by untrusted components such as hardware Trojans. BlueRISC proposes an automated toolkit that utilizes existing Design-For-Testability (DFT) structures (e.g. scan-chains) to enable the ...

  4. CrasHD: Semantics-Aware, Human-Assisted, Security-Critical Data Triage in COTS Application Crashes

    SBC: ZeroPoint Dynamics LLC            Topic: SB173003

    Over a decade ago, security practitioners highlighted threats posed by memory corruption exploits subverting systems through manipulation of security-critical non-control-datawithout ever corrupting application control-flow. Since that demonstration, however, the full power of data-oriented attacks went largely unnoticed until very recently. One reason for this recent emergence is that exploitatio ...

  5. Materials Engineering of Alkali Halide and Rare Earth Halide Scintillators

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA182007

    Scintillators are the major components of radiation detection systems used in identification of Special Nuclear Materials.One of their key properties is the energy resolution (ER) that links directly to isotope identification capabilities.Typically the ER for scintillators varies from 3% (at 662 keV, FWHM) for the best materials to more common 6-7%.At the moment, many detectors use latter material ...

  6. Innovative Materials Engineering and Growth of a High Performance and Low Cost Scintillator

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: DTRA182007

    The goal of this program is to produce radiation detector scintillators with enhanced-medium energy resolution of 2-3%, at costs approaching those of medium energy resolution detectors such as CsI.To achieve this goal, a two pronged approach will be pursued.First, we will employ materials engineering tools to improve the performance of an existing scintillator with superior attributes.Second, an i ...

  7. Autonomous navigation through small, confined spaces

    SBC: Greensight Agronomics, Inc.            Topic: DTRA182002

    GreenSight Agronomics (GSAg) is proposing to develop a man-portable, fully autonomous aerial mapping system to satisfy the goal of the solicitation: quickly and completely mapping a confined space with no human guidance. The vehicle will have a 400 mm frame size to provide an ideal balance between maneuverability, flight time, and payload capacity. We have chosen the Pixhawk platform running ArduP ...

  8. CANTEAN: Cave and Narrow Tunnel Exploration and Navigation

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: DTRA182002

    In response to the DTRA182-002 solicitation, we propose CANTEAN: Cave and Narrow Tunnel Exploration and Navigation, a flying system that employs the use of low-SWaP sensors and processors using advanced algorithms for rapid navigation and mapping of unknown, subterranean areas as part of a heterogeneous team.Bio-inspired obstacle avoidance and navigation and the efficient exchange and merging of s ...

  9. Alternative Signature Detectors for Long Range Nuclear Material Identification

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA162003

    Increasing the distance for standoff detection of nuclear materials, beyond that capable with direct radiation detection, using alternative signatures, such as the concentration of ionization in the surrounding atmosphere, improves the ability to locate, track and monitor this material.Ionizing radiation generates free elections, ions, and exited states in the nearby atmosphere, even when the sour ...
