  1. A Rapid-to-Deploy Agent-Based Wireless Sensing Architecture for Autonomous Structural Collapse Prediction

    SBC: CIVIONICS, LLC            Topic: HSB0132004

    While most media attention in the wake of a terrorist attack, a natural disaster, or even a single building fire focuses rightly on the safety and wellbeing of the general public, one often overlooked aspect of these catastrophic events is the extreme risk taken by first responders who enter structures on the verge of collapse. For example, after the attacks on the World Trade Center on September ...

  2. Bulk Currency Vapor detection in Confined Spaces

    SBC: Nevada Nanotech Systems Inc.            Topic: HSB0132001

    The proposed goal of Nevada Nanotech Systems Inc for the Phase I program is to select a practical technological solution and develop a Con-Ops for the problem of detecting U.S. currency via unique vapor signature(s) in confined spaces for three related, though unique, application scenarios (bags, vehicles, and shipping containers). Nevada Nano will document a matrix of technical and operational re ...

  3. Automatic Threat Recognition Algorithm for Volumetric CT Data

    SBC: Telesecurity Sciences, Inc.            Topic: HSB0122002

    For Phase II work, we propose to complete the development of the DICOS compliant ATR algorithm whose feasibility has been demonstrated by results of Phase I work. Important project milestones for the first base year of Phase II are as follows: (1) implementation of the DICOS standard including network protocol, (2) improvement of the proposed ATR algorithm in terms of explosive detection performan ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...
