  1. Protective Panels for Bridge Supports

    SBC: Cellular Materials International, Inc.            Topic: HSB082001

    Cellular Materials International, Inc. (CMI)proposes an innovative energy-absorbing MicroTrussTM panel structure to protect the nation`s busiest, most critical bridges from a close-in, high-intensity blast event. The ability of this panel system to mitigate and deflect blast energy was demonstrated in Phase I through finite element analysis modeling and a subscale, close proximity blast test. Du ...

  2. Spray-on Treatments for Critical Infrastructure Protection

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: HSB082001

    The success of a Phase I research effort has compelled Resodyn Corporation to submit a Phase II proposal based on an engineered materials approach for preventing, or mitigating the damage caused primarily by blast with some application for projectile, and fire damage. The proposed Spray-on Treatments for Engineered Protection (STEP) system allows flexibility in both the design of the coating and ...

    SBC: LewTech Company, Inc.            Topic: HSB052003

    Non-cooperative vessel tracking to assess potential threats is becoming increasingly important to the defense of the U.S. coastline and ports of entry; so there is a need to identify and intercept potential threats well before they reach our shores. To support this critical surveillance activity a Phase I Program established a relatively low cost, long life, moored buoy based vessel detection / si ...

  4. SCMS2- A Robust Secure Management System for SCADA/EMS Operations

    SBC: TecSec Incorporated            Topic: HSB041008

    For Phase Two, TecSec will evolve the scope of the Phase One SCMS prototype design for SCADA/DCS design to reflect the ultimate goal of developing a real-world SCMS prototype with a rapid commercialization potential. For Phase II, TecSec is teamed with General Electric Energy Management Systems (GE EMS), a major player in the EMS/SCADA arena for this Phase II effort. TecSec and GE realize the impo ...

  5. Cross Domain Controller

    SBC: Trident Systems Incorporated            Topic: HSB061007

    The current, dominant approach to implementing secure boundary controls across networks for information exchange is the use of secure Guards. This technology consists of a separate computer system using a trusted operating system and hosting the guarding software and appropriate filters. By definition, the use of a Guard requires that networks be defined as "high side" and "low side" and the Guard ...

  6. Semantic Mesh for Intelligent Sensors

    SBC: Trident Systems Incorporated            Topic: HSB081005

    Public safety sensor systems for heavily-populated applications (e.g., airports, convention centers, border crossings, and sport stadiums) require sophisticated, geographically-distributed infrastructures, which usually require centralized supervision and deployment of large-scale security and surveillance networks. New sensor and communication technologies are emerging to capture and process hig ...

  7. OBSERVER: Ocular-Based Screening Evaluation and Real-time Verification Examination Remotely

    SBC: Veridical Research and Design Corporation            Topic: HSB081001

    Veridical Research and Design Corporation proposes to deliver a prototype of the OBSERVER (Ocular-Based Screening Evaluation and Real-time Verification Examination Remotely) Malintent Detection system capable of non-intrusively assessing an individual`s intent-to-deceive using ocular-based measures. Work under Phase II will develop a prototype application that supports (a) the extension of the bas ...

  8. Smart Sensor System for a Southern Border Surveillance System

    SBC: Vista Research, Inc.            Topic: HSB061004

    Vista Research proposes to deploy and test a baseline implementation of the "Smart Sensors" system evaluated under Phase I and measure the system performance within the context of the Southern Border environment. The Smart Sensors system concept combines low-cost, COTS sensor systems with advanced digital signal processing technologies and algorithms with the aim of providing automated, high-perfo ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
