  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. Improved Microcalorimeter Detectors for X-Ray Chemical Shift Mapping

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: N/A

    X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy is a widely used and extremely sensitive analytical technique for qualitative as well as quantitative chemical analysis. Superconducting Transition Edge Sensor (TES) microcalorimeter detectors have now been developed that achieve an energy resolution of 2 eV (full width at half maximum) for 1.5 keV X-rays, which is sufficient to enable the measurement of the small s ...

  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 ...

  8. NEURAL NETWORKS FOR ADAPTIVE THREAT RESPONSE

    SBC: MARTINGALE RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    NEURAL NETWORKS ARE A PROMISING SOLUTION TO SEVERAL PROBLEMS IN THE APPLICATION OF PARALLEL PROCESSING TECHNOLOGY FOR ADAPTIVE RECOGNITIONAND RESPONSE TO COMPLEX PATTERNS. UNFORTUNATELY, IT IS NOT KNOWN HOW TO GET A NEURAL NETWORK TO RECOGNIZE PATTERNS INDEPENDENTLY OF THE VALUES OF THEIR FEATURE PARAMETERS WITHOUT INCORPORATING SPECIAL INVARIANT TRANSFORMS FOR EACH SUCH FEATURE. THIS PROPOSAL INT ...

  9. ELECTRON BEAM STABILITY IN COMPACT RECIRCULATING ACCELERATORS

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    STABLE BEAM TRANSPORT IS A CENTRAL ISSUE IN DEVELOPING COMPACT HIGH CURRENT ELECTRON BEAM RECIRCULATING INDUCTION ACCELERATORS. POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS INSTABILITIES INCLUDE THE NEGATIVE MASS, THE BEAM BREAKUP (FOR INDUCTIVE GAPS DESIGNS), AND THREE-WAVE (FOR STRONG FOCUSING DESIGNS). MISSION RESEARCH CORPORATION PROPOSES TO DETERMINE THEIR SERIOUSNESS FOR HIGH CURRENT RECIRCULATING ACCELERATORS AND ...

  10. MAGNETIC IMAGE SEEKER UTILIZING NEW MAGNETIC MATERIALS

    SBC: Security Tag Systems Inc            Topic: N/A

    IT IS PROPOSED THAT A NEW TYPE OF SOFT MAGNETIC MATERIAL CAN BE USED FOR A VERY SENSITIVE AND LOW MAGNETIC FIELD DETECTION DEVICE. TO DETECT THE MILITARY TARGETS, ONE NEEDS A HIGHLY SENSITIVE DEVICE BUT THE EXISTING FLUX-GATE MAGNETOMETERS ARE LIMITED BY THEIR SIGNAL-TONOISE RATIO. WITH THE DEVELOPMENT OF SUPERIOR MAGNETIC MATERIALS AND IMPROVED ELECTRONICS, SOME OF THE NOISE PROBLEMS IN FLUX-GATE ...
