  1. Autonomous Detection and Healing of Silent Vulnerabilities

    SBC: BlueRISC Inc            Topic: HSB0142002

    BlueRISC's proposed solution provides a fundamentally new approach to automated embedded software/firmware analysis relying on a novel cross-binary/firmware differential exploitability analysis framework. The solution is able to identify newly added potentially exploitable paths associated with zero/n-day vulnerabilities, characterize new functionality with respect to its potentially malicious nat ...

  2. Tracking Nuclear Threats in Security Camera Networks (TNT-SCAN)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: HSB0181010

    Implementing continuous nuclear and radiological monitoring systems that support automatic detection and tracking of potential nuclear threats is traditionally associated with a high operational burden. Sensors are typically monitored by dedicated personnel, who must investigate detection events in a timely manner. High nuisance alarm rates can rapidly overwhelm already taxed law enforcement perso ...

  3. Rapid Tox-Based Wearable Sensing Badge for Solid Aerosol and Contact Exposure to Fentanils

    SBC: Nano Terra, Inc.            Topic: HSB0181001

    Clear Scientific, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Nano Terra, proposes to develop a low-cost and wearable detector badge that quickly alerts the user in real time to the presence of solid or aerosolized fentanils with an audible and visual alert. Current commercial opioid detectors are bulky, costly, and cannot be used passively in real time. Clear Scientific will leverage their expertise in ultra-se ...

  4. Monitoring and Inspecting Dirty Nukes Including Generating Heatmaps of Terrain (MIDNIGHT)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: HSB0191010

    A successful weapon of mass destruction (WMD) terrorist attack against the United States would have a profound and potentially catastrophic impact on our nation. It is imperative to be able to quickly, efficiently, and effectively localize radiological threats in a wide array of unstructured environments to detect and deter such an event. In recent years, man-portable radiation detectors have beco ...

  5. Networked Aerial Vehicle for Automated Radiation Clearing (NAVARC)

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: HSB0191010

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop the Networked Aerial Vehicle for Automated Radiation Clearing (NAVARC) to perform an autonomous search for radiological threats in a complex 3-D environment. The PSI-developed InstantEye unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) will navigate using a series of optimized waypoints to minimize the time required to fully search an area and inspect objects. Detecti ...

  6. Advanced Robot Training Interface

    SBC: Energid Technologies Corporation            Topic: OSD13HS1

    It is not likely that an autonomous system can be programmed with all the information it requires to perform every mission or every variation of every contingency within the near future. One way to address this issue is to provide user-friendly means to teach or program a robot to add to its autonomous capability. This proposal focuses on the physical aspects of the robot performance, manipulat ...

  7. Autonomy Safety Testing Environment

    SBC: Energid Technologies Corporation            Topic: OSD141AU4

    Recent advancements in sensor simulation tools [2] have improved our ability to model radar, lidar, camera, and GPS with software/hardware in the loop. Of course, our ability to model the physics of heavy trucks [3] is quite mature as well. To address the challenge of developing the STE, we will provide our autonomy algorithms as Government Furnished Equipment (GFE). The focus of this topic ...

  8. Autonomous Detection and Healing of Silent Vulnerabilities

    SBC: BlueRISC Inc            Topic: HSB0142002

    BlueRISC's proposed solution provides a fundamentally new approach to enable autonomous detection of exploitation attempts as well as healing of silent vulnerabilities. It follows a hybrid approach consisting of (i) new static silent vulnerability point and associated path pre-characterization concepts, and (ii) the insertion of minimal and low-overhead runtime support enabled by the vulnerability ...

  9. Increasing the Specific Power of Epitaxial Lift-Off Solar Cells for Cost-Effective, High-Efficiency, Flexible Photovoltaics

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: OSD13EP3

    Photovoltaics (solar cells) are an attractive technology to provide renewable energy sources for forward operating bases, man-portable power sources, and tactical applications. Solar arrays can provide base power greatly reducing the need for logistical fuels, continuous battery recharging for warfighters on the move, and integrated power sources for remote, autonomous systems, e.g. UAVs. To be ef ...

  10. Laser Exposure Measurement Device

    SBC: Optra, Inc.            Topic: HSB0142004

    The widespread use and deployment of laser systems in the public domain has led to the need for laser exposure measurement systems that operate over wide spectral range and provide sufficient dynamic range to measure exposure relative to maximum permissible exposure (MPE) limits and establish normal hazard zones (NHZ). OPTRA, Inc. proposes a solution based on multiple detector arrays, custom CMOS ...
