  1. A Design Automation Tool for Integrated Nanophotonics based on Compact Modeling and Model Order Reduction

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: OSD13C05

    Existing physics-based device simulation tools are prohibitively expensive computationally, and therefore ill-suited for parametric analysis and design optimization of photonic integrated circuits (PIC). The proposed effort aims to develop and demonstrate an innovative, easy-to-use simulation tool for accurate, fast circuit/system analysis of PICs. The salient aspects of the proposed solution are: ...

  2. Algorithmically Accelerated Iterative Reconstruction for Fast and Cost-Effective CT-based Explosive Detection Equipment

    SBC: INSTARECON INC            Topic: HSB0142003

    Accurate, realtime detection of explosives is a demanding application. High detection accuracy with a low false positive rate is desired. Noise and artifacts in reconstructed images, especially in the presence of metal, degrade the ability of detection algorithms to identify object's shape, volume, and composition. Model-based iterative reconstruction (MBIR) has been demonstrated to improve i ...

  3. Direct Injection Systems for Improved Performance, Durability, and Economy

    SBC: KINETIC BEI LLC            Topic: OSD13PR1

    Kinetic BEI, LLC. proposes a dual path approach to fulfilling the need for a direct injected heavy fuel delivery system for engines under 200 Hp. The primary focus will be to advance the Miniature CI Fuel Injection System, a system whose individual components have been demonstrated in on-engine testing in a laboratory environment. The new system will integrate the next generation Miniature CI In ...

  4. DNA Profiles from Single FIngerprints

    SBC: Independent Forensics of Illinois, LLC            Topic: HSB0151001

    The goal of this project is to develop a validated, commercial quality reagent kit for the reliable collection of fingerprints (i.e., latent ridge impressions) that would subsequently be used for both comparison and DNA profiling. The kit would provide all required materials, reagents, solutions and would include a detailed protocol describing the steps to (i) identify latent ridge impressions (al ...

  5. Hands-off oral vaccine delivery system to immunize wildlife populations against high consequence diseases.

    SBC: FoodSource Lure Corporation            Topic: HSB0141002

    The overall goal of this research project is to develop an effective, economical, bait-based oral vaccine delivery system for immunizing wildlife populations against high consequence diseases. This system is based on FoodSource Lures patented Incortrix bait formulation that can be used to incorporate complex agents such as vaccines with minimal loss of biological activity when exposed to the envi ...

  6. Next Generation First Responder Communication Hub

    SBC: Integrated Solutions For Systems, Inc.            Topic: HSB0151005

    As technology advances, First Responders are presented with a growing suite of increasingly sophisticated sensors and communication tools that provide vital, up-to-the-minute situational awareness information about their surroundings, location and status of nearby First Responders, and personal well-being. For example, programs such as the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Apex Next Generation ...

  7. Polarization Enhanced Thermal (eTherm) Imager for Mobile Footprint Detection

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: HSB0141001

    Imaging polarimetry has demonstrated the ability for detection of military targets in situations where traditional imaging sensors fall short. Detection of polarization of light emitted or reflected from objects in a scene enhances contrast between objects and backgrounds, providing additional information about the geometry, material, temperature, and surface characteristics of the objects in the ...

  8. Status Indicator for Downed Power Lines

    SBC: Integrated Solutions For Systems, Inc.            Topic: HSB0142005

    We utilize a very small single chip communication device connected to a micro controller and a GPS receiver to create a network of rugged, inexpensive, very small pole mounted devices. These devices or "nodes" can determine and report which phase line is disconnected and also which end of the lines are down. The exact location of the node that detects a break is also reported along with the date ...
