  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. Swarm Robotic Sensing Platform for Search and Rescue

    SBC: ROBOTIC RESEARCH LLC            Topic: HSB0121006

    Teleoperation is the most commonly used method for controlling Small Unmanned Ground Vehicles (SUGV) into areas that are too dangerous or constrained for humans or canines to explore. These SUGVs provide cameras and sensors that provide situational awareness to the operators. However, as the number of SUGVs increases, so do the constraints and operational requirements that they impose on the mis ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Mitigation of Contact Lens, Eye Surgery, Pupil Dilation, and Other Challenges in Iris Recognition

    SBC: Member of the Family LLC            Topic: HSB0111005

    Member of the Family LLC's proposal is designed to study and analyze the effects of contact lens usage, eye surgery and various types of pupil dilation as they relate to the accuracy and performance of iris recognition systems. Additionally we propose to determine whether or not appropriate measures exist or can be created to mitigate the effects of these factors in iris recognition. While others ...

  5. Three Dimensional Acoustic Sensing Unit (3DASU) Phase II

    SBC: Signal Systems Corporation            Topic: HSB0112001

    SSC proposes a low power tri-axial acoustic sensor that leverages our existing acoustic chambered design to provide a directional sensor that has high sensitivity, rugged construction with low power consumption. Our approach extends prototypes developed under DoD sponsorship, including DARPA, Army, Navy and Special Forces efforts. Our innovative chambered design provides a large physical apertur ...

  6. Low-cost and Rapid DNA Sequence for Biometric Applications

    SBC: ADVANCED LIQUID LOGIC            Topic: HSB091001

    Advanced Liquid Logic proposes to develop a low-cost and rapid biometric system based on DNA. Using a miniaturized DNA sequencing format the device will enable DNA-based identification of individuals as well as determination of family relationships (kinship) between individuals. The system will be implemented using Advanced Liquid Logic`s proprietary Digital Microfluidics technology, which is base ...

  7. 3WEAVE Fabric/Composite Panels for Blast Protection

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: HSB082001

      Based on the results of the Phase I project, it was shown that 3TEX`s unitary 3D woven E-Glass billet reinforced composite panels have excellent potential to be used as blast mitigating material for protecting buildings. Fibers and resins used in the Phase I were selected with affordability and fire resistance as the major considerations. In the Phase II effort proposed, the same fiber and ...

  8. Electrospray Based High Vacuum Diffusion Pump for Mass Spectrometers

    SBC: Connecticut Analytical Corporation            Topic: HSB0102002

    Mass spectrometers necessitate a partial pressure zone to allow for the process of mass characterization of the analyte under consideration. The reasons for transforming neutral molecules into charged ions include (1) the ability to control the trajectories and destinations of charged species by appropriate combinations of electric and magnetic fields and (2) detectability that is generally much g ...

  9. Electrospray Stand-off Detection of Trace Species in Air of Currency

    SBC: Connecticut Analytical Corporation            Topic: HSB0102001

      To detect and identify vapors of contraband currency, not to mention a selection mode for explosives, narcotics, chemical warfare agents, biological threats or other analyte species at trace levels in air, is an important problem with many ramifications. One widely used approach is based on transforming the molecules of those species into gas phase ions, which are then characterized by mea ...

  10. A Wearable Battery Cloth

    SBC: FLEXEL LLC            Topic: HSB092008

    This Phase II technical proposal provides a comprehensive description of the proposed work for further development and commercialization of a wearable battery cloth for first responders, as part of the Wearable Energy to Power and Operate Responder Tools program. During Phase I, a breakthrough discovery led to more than an order of magnitude improvement in battery capacity per unit area. While thi ...
