  1. Fulcrum Biometrics' Plan for Research and Development of WS-BD Conformant Handheld Fingerprint Sensor

    SBC: Fulcrum Biometrics, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Trusted biometric validation of individual identities has never been more important. Several contributing factors are the increase in global terrorism, identity theft and the increase in legislation which are driving the accelerated adoption of biometric technology. Unfortunately, the biometrics industry has not actively responded to the changing market conditions being driven by the explosion in ...

  2. High-Throughput Manufacturing Methods for Engineered MRI Contrast Agents

    SBC: ADVANCED RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 9010368R

    This project focuses on developing a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast agent that may increase the detection of tagged cells by a factor of 10-100. The ability to noninvasively track specifically labeled (tagged) cells, enables a researcher or medical treatment professional to dynamically monitor the delivery and targeted application of medicinal and bio-reactive agents.

  3. Large-Area, High-Uniformity Photodiodes for Infrared Trap Detectors

    SBC: Amethyst Research Incorporated            Topic: 9020168R

    methyst Research Inc. will design, fabricate and test a high uniformity, large area, low noise infrared trap-detector detector for the 1- 4.5 μm wavelength range. This state of the art detector will have a large area (e.g., 1-1.8 cm diameter active area) with a spatial variability of internal quantum efficiency of less than 0.1 % between 1 μm and 4.5 μm. In addition, the internal quantum effici ...

  4. Recovery of Rhenium from Superalloy Scrap

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: OSD12T04

    Due to the limited amount of rhenium present in the earths crust (approximately 1-2 part per billion) there is a significant benefit to be realized in recovering for reuse the rhenium from scrap material, spent catalysts, or end-of-life superalloys. Rhenium is found in molybdenum-copper porphyry deposits. If rhenium is present in ore that is processed, it will show up in the resulting molybdenum ...

  5. Countermeasures to Malicious Hardware to Improve Software Protection Systems

    SBC: Clear Hat Consulting, Inc.            Topic: OSD10IA1

    The availability and low cost of COTS software and hardware components has resulted in their deployment across a wide array of critical defense and industry applications. Clear Hat focused their Phase 1 effort on developing countermeasures for malicious hard disk firmware. Although we will continue our research and development of technologies designed to ensure the integrity of disk drive firmware ...

  6. Knowledge-aided Interface for Big Data Streams

    SBC: SECURBORATION, INC.            Topic: OSD13LD2

    Big data challenges across Department of Defense (DOD) domains are increasingly problematic for tactical level decision making. Data collections in the open source and military channels are growing at such a staggering rate that it exceeds our ability to store and manage, perform computation and analysis, and maintain data security [1, 2]. Indeed, one author refers to the inability to handle big ...

  7. High Efficiency Electric Power Manager for Man-Portable Photovoltaic Systems

    SBC: APECOR CORP            Topic: OSD13EP2

    Renewable energy, specifically photovoltaic, is an attractive technology for man-portable power sources and tactical applications. However, to be effective as a system, it is necessary to have a power manager that can efficiently couple a small solar array (~20W) to a battery such as the BB2590. Power managers are already being fielded with PV sources, but their usefulness has been limited by the ...

  8. Advanced Heavy Fuel Injection System for UAS/UGS Applications

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: OSD13PR1

    This effort is to develop a fast responding, light weight, direct injection system to operate within the fuels ignition delay time for UAS/UGS application. These systems must be applicable to engines that are 200 HP or less, either reciprocating or rotary. A technical challenge associated with the conversion of gasoline engines to heavy fuel (JP-8) is the avoidance of knock. An approach used to ...

  9. Precision 10 kV Programmable Voltage Source

    SBC: Low Thermal Electronics, Inc.            Topic: NA

    Low Thermal Electronics, Inc. proposes to design a stand-alone, programmable voltage source capable of supplying precision voltages in the range of zero to 1,000 volts direct current (DC), with options for scaling up to 10,000 volts, and with a total expanded uncertainty (k=2) of less than 10uV/V for the 10,000 volt version. This instrument will improve state-of-the-art measurements in high resist ...

  10. ISABEL- Integrated Secure Automated Bug Extraction List

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: NA

    The ISABEL program will create symbolic execution signatures to classify bugs in the NIST Bugs Framework. Using the symbolic execution signature ISABEL will find a program input to trigger the bug using fuzz testing. ISABEL will integrate its bug categorization and bug triggering capability with a software development environment using a flexible framework that will allow both open source and comm ...
