  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  6. Development of a Standard-based Iris Image Quality Tool Suite

    SBC: DL2 Tech Corporation            Topic: HSB0112005

    In this project, we will design a standard-based, robust, and efficient iris image quality measure tool. It can be used to select the images of sufficient quality for inclusion in the biometric repository database(s), improve collection processes, and develop quality-based iris matching algorithms. At the same time, it can be incorporated into iris recognition systems as plug-ins to improve recogn ...

  8. Natural Language Processing and Prioritization for Contextual Symbolic Rendering

    SBC: Digital Sandbox Inc.            Topic: HSB0112006

    With the desire to be prepared for possible threat scenarios, DHS has access to data, but it can be disparate with a mix of structured and unstructured data in very large quantities. Information from a variety of sources needs to be ingested and processed in order to determine the "what, when, where, and how bad", then presented geospatially for monitoring and analysis purposes. Constructing and m ...
