  1. COTS MMW Radar for Tracking Persons within a Security Perimeter

    SBC: PSQUAREDT LLC            Topic: HSB0121005

    The implications of the proposed investigations are that radar systems already implemented for the automotive industry can be exploited, adapted and optimized for this application. These radar systems are inexpensive, of small size, employ advanced processing techniques which allow the tracking of threat targets, transmit low average power (10 milliwatts) and are proven to be people safe. We will ...

  2. A Novel Fractionation and Concentration System for Improved Biological Detection

    SBC: InnovaPrep, LLC            Topic: HSB0111002

    Detection of bioaerosols is a cornerstone in the protection of our nation from bioterrorist and pandemic events. Rapid bioaerosol detection systems have advanced dramatically in recent years, but the lack of integratable automated sample preparation for these systems remains a major deficiency. Three significant issues are (a) a lack of an interface between large environmental samples and sample p ...

  3. Improved Dried Biological Specimen Materials, Recovery and Processing for Diagnostics

    SBC: Connecticut Analytical Corporation            Topic: SB112005

    Dried blood spot (DBS) analysis has gained recognition in recent years in basic science and clinical diagnostics. This impetus relies upon its numerous advantages over the collection, transport and storage of blood samples obtained by conventional venipuncture. Although there is wide-spread interest in DBS, optimization of sample collection and extraction methods, as well as, the subsequent analys ...

  4. Biometrics-at-a-distance

    SBC: OMNEVIA CORPORATION            Topic: SB121004

    The DOD has a need to leverage state of the art technologies remotely detect, collect, and evaluate physiological signals of interest. Applications and concepts-of-operations (CONOPs) that would benefit from this capability include, but are not limited to: building-clearing, warfighter health monitoring or battle damage assessment and triage, situational awareness and assessment. The main goal o ...

  5. Machine Tool Genome Project

    SBC: MANUFACTURING LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: SB102005

    The objective of this research is to enable pre-process milling parameter selection for"first part correct"production. In the proposed solution the Receptance Coupling Substructure Analysis (RCSA) approach will be used to couple the measured spindle-machine dynamics to models of the tool and holder and predict the assembly"s dynamic response. Given this information, frequency/time-domain algorithm ...

  6. Direct Plasma Production from Electric Solid Propellant for High Velocity Launch Systems

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: SB112002

    As an alternative to near-obsolete double-base or triple-base propellants, Digital Solid State Propulsion (DSSP) is developing Electric Solid Propellants (ESP) as a safe, green, higher performance highly manufacturable alternative for high velocity electro-thermal-chemical (ETC) gun rounds. These electric energetic materials are inherently safe, with ignition only possible via the sustained suppl ...

  7. IP Hopper (for Moving Target Defense)

    SBC: CYBERNET SYSTEMS CORPORATION            Topic: HSB0121002

    The IP Hopper is a moving target defense system that will use available network data and hopping algorithms to allow for constant IP address changing of both source and destination IP addresses. The use of "hopping" IP addresses will severely diminish an attacker's ability to attack any one target within a network. Utilizing IPv6 the IP Hopper will allow up to 340 undecillion (3.4 x 10 to the 38 ...

  8. Ruggedization of Commercial-Grade Handheld Electronics for First Responders

    SBC: CYBERNET SYSTEMS CORPORATION            Topic: HSB0122004

    Ruggedized electronics can be costly; utilizing commercial-grade hand-held computing/communication device and combining with well-designed case can provide ruggedization (impact, temperature, moisture) and extend capabilities such as integrated inclusion of smartcard/CAC readers, biometrics, and advanced barcode scanners. This program will determine the requirements for ruggedizing a device and us ...

  9. Automatic Threat Recognition Algorithm for Volumetric CT Data

    SBC: Telesecurity Sciences, Inc.            Topic: HSB0122002

    This Phase I proposal describes the development of an Automatic Threat Recognition (ATR) algorithm for volumetric CT data. Our ATR algorithm consists of four stages: (1) preprocessing of CT data, (2) object segmentation of preprocessed CT data, (3) post-processing of segmentation results, and (4) explosive detection from the segmented objects. The ATR algorithm will be made computationally efficie ...

  10. Image Quality Assessment Toolkit for X-ray Imaging Systems

    SBC: Telesecurity Sciences, Inc.            Topic: HSB0122003

    This Phase I proposal describes (1) an automated image quality assessment (IQA) software to objectively quantify image quality of airport security X-ray imaging systems for both checked and carry-on baggage and (2) a design for a novel test phantom specialized for security CT scanners. For fixed images, automated algorithms will measure the Modulation Transfer Function (MTF) and Contrast-to-Noise ...
