  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. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Vector Array Buoy Detection System

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: HSB052003

    Applied Physical Sciences Corp. will develop a distributed buoy detection system using an advanced acoustic receiver. The sonar array will consist of a vertical line of vector hydrophones to maximize gain against unwanted ambient noise and provide 20+nm detection ranges for targets of interest. Additionally the single vector vertical line array will provide target bearing and tracking data that ca ...

  8. Handheld Multianalyte Biosensor Platform

    SBC: TIRF Technologies            Topic: HSB052001

    The goal of this project is to develop a handheld biosensor for rapid detection of bioanalytes such as proteins, peptides, nucleic acids, toxins, viruses, bacteria and other molecular targets that represent interest for the biodefense area. We propose to build a rugged device, similar to a palm computer, equipped with a disposable sensor cartridge designed for simultaneous detection of multiple ta ...

  9. Low Cost 3D Sonar System for Underwater Threat Detection

    SBC: FARSOUNDER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    FarSounder proposes to develop a low cost 3D sonar system for underwater threat detection. This system will be based on the FarSounder 3D sonar technology and will utilize COTS components which will leverage FarSounder`s advanced processing techniques to increase the system`s performance when compared to currently available port security sonars. For this Phase I effort FarSounder will perform a fe ...

  10. SMART Hybrid Container System

    SBC: Mariner Container Corp.            Topic: HSB051006

    The global economy has brought about enormous opportunities in the areas of trade with developing nations. Nowhere is it more evident than in the East Asian basin. In 2002, over 12 million TEU containers where imported into the U.S. with over 60% originating in China/Hong Kong. In the same year, only 7 million TEU containers where exported from the U.S. to the rest of the world. What happened to t ...
