  1. Multispectral Omnidirectional Small Vessel Identification Imaging and Tracking Camera System

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: HSB0111001

    To address the DHS need for small vessel cooperative identification and tracking (SVCT) and non-cooperative vessel imaging and tracking (NVIT) technologies, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Multispectral Omnidirectional Small Vessel Identification Imaging and Tracking Camera (MOVIDITC) system. The proposed MOVIDITC system is based on a unique integration of POC`s demonst ...

  2. Multistage Dielectrophoretic Sample Preparation System

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: HSB0111002

    High-fidelity biomolecular analysis techniques, such as PCR, DNA sequencing, or ELISA, rely heavily on adequate sample preprocessing. To achieve maximum performance from these sensitive analytical techniques, the DHS needs novel methods for flowthrough systems that prepare and concentrate biological materials from environmental samples. Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a Multi ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Visor-Enhanced SCBA Transparent Armor Lens System

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: HSB0111006

    To address this HSARPA need, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Visor-Enhanced SCBA Transparent Armor (VESTA) lens, based on a transparent metallic-oxide material system, and serving as a drop-in replacement lens in current mask systems. VESTA possesses improved thermomechanical durability (compared to existing polycarbonate lenses) with 5x greater service temperatures and ...

  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 ...

  10. 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 ...
