  1. High Performance Signal Processing Tools with Fluctuation-Enhanced Sensing

    SBC: Signal Processing, Inc.            Topic: 9020163R

    We propose a high performance library of signal processing tools that incorporate a newly developed technique known as fluctuation enhanced sensing (FES) to enhance the novel microsensor developed at NIST. Our goal is to improve the performance of the NIST sensor from two angles. One is to apply our existing proven algorithms to the NIST data. The other one is to incorporate advanced FES concept t ...

  2. Production Methods and Software for NIST Calibration Phantoms

    SBC: SIGMA K CORP            Topic: 9050868TT

    Currently, there are over 10,000 MRI scanners used in the US alone. US citizens today are mobile and many times medical treatments may require MRI scans from several different facilities. Images from MRI scanners can also drift over time. There is a tremendous need for all medical imaging scanners to be on the same level. Sigma-K will develop the commercialization of the ISMRM/NIST MRI Calibration ...

  3. Enhanced Security Content Automation Protocol Editor

    SBC: G2, INC.            Topic: 9040577R

    G2 proposes to develop an intuitive, interactive SCAP content creation and editing utility that will provide a user-friendly operating environment. The promise of security automation offers the opportunity for great advances in software assurance, security governance/reporting, and ongoing monitoring activities. Hindering that promise is the fact that current data exchange protocols are cumbersome ...

  4. Extraction of Bioproducts from Algae in Water using Cavitating Jets

    SBC: DYNAFLOW, INC            Topic: 812SG

    One of the most promising biomass sources for fuels and other feedstocks is photosynthetic algae. Algae can produce lipids, proteins, and other compounds, and can be grown in salt water. Current production practices rely on expensive means of harvesting, concentrating, and extracting the algae. This makes the “bio-crude” produced by algae more expensive than petroleum. Recovering the cellular ...

  5. Sensor Data Fusion

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF VIRTUAL ORGANIZATIONS, INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA10001

    MDA seeks to maximize the utility of collected sensor data through a fusion architecture that provides an integrated view of the battlespace. IAVO proposes research and development of a fusion architecture, which employs novel algorithmic techniques using a foundation of sound stochastic theory, probabilistic inference methodologies and pattern recognition techniques to develop the iView2TM (Integ ...

  6. Anti-Tamper Technologies for Missile Defense

    SBC: Envieta LLC            Topic: MDA10017

    Based on a new construct, this approach employs repeated application of an existing block cipher in a random sequence to significantly decrease the SNR available to power line attacks and increase the number of recorded events necessary to conduct DPA attacks. The objective is to demonstrate the feasibility of a randomized block cipher architecture and it's ability to reduce side-channel info ...

  7. Photonics TDU for Radar True Time Delay (TTD)

    SBC: Morton Photonics Incorporated            Topic: MDA10027

    In this SBIR program, Morton Photonics will develop a practical phased array radar time delay unit (TDU), incorporating photonic devices for the key functions fabricated in a silicon CMOS compatible process (silicon photonics) to provide for significant scaling of cost with module volume in order to meet the aggressive cost goals of the solicitation. The TDU design will include an optical true-tim ...

  8. Terahertz Signature Modeling for Kill Assessment and Warhead Materials Identification

    SBC: Applied Quantum Technologies            Topic: MDA09034

    Our Phase I study provided quantitative results that showed feasibility for scenarios of interest. It included both the details of signatures and the sensitivity for THz sensor systems with realistic parameters. In Phase II we will extend these results to create a non-scenario specific model that will serve as an interface with the intercept community allowing the capabilities of the THz to be o ...

  9. Hypervelocity Intercept Modeling with First-Principle, Physics-Based Tools

    SBC: Corvid Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA07019

    The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) has become more reliant on First Principles Model and Simulation to assess the effectiveness of the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS). This is due in part to the continued growth in cost and schedule for ground based testing program that have traditionally been used for such assessments. Results from the Phase I SBIR, MDA-073-019 SBIR, Hypervelocity Interce ...

  10. Coherent Distributed Aperture Enabled Active Electronically Steered Array (CDA-AESA)

    SBC: Applied Radar, Inc.            Topic: MDA07T011

    Missile threats faced by our country are constantly increasing in lethality. The weapon used to counter such missiles is the kinetic interceptor. To work effectively, the reentry vehicle (RV) location must be precisely known. Confusing objects within the reentry complex make the key discrimination process very difficult. Coherent distributed aperture (CDA) radar represents an important advance in ...
