  1. Real-Time Authentication to Counter Caller ID Spoofing

    SBC: Illuma Labs Inc.            Topic: HSB0171003

    Vulnerabilities in telecommunications channels are being exploited at alarming rates by malicious attackers to commit fraud, perpetrate scams, and organize data breaches. In addition to financial losses incurred by corporations and taxpayers, attacks against government agencies such as the DHS can severely compromise national security. A common element of these attacks is the attacker's ability to ...

  2. A Layered Service Provider/Customer Approach to Call Spoofing

    SBC: SECURELOGIX CORPORATION            Topic: HSB0171003

    Our proposed solution is based upon three primary concepts. First, we define the Authentication Engine, which is a cloud-based service that is passed simple information about a call, masks the complexity of using a variety of techniques to detect spoofing or authenticate the caller, and returns a score and actionable category for a very wide variety of scenarios. Second, we are making heavy use of ...

  3. A Robust Biofilm-Biomat Reactor for Conversion of Mission-Relevant Feedstocks to Products

    SBC: Sustainable Bioproducts LLC            Topic: T7

    Sustainable Bioproducts (SB) proposes to develop an encapsulated biofilm-biomat reactor that will efficiently convert mission relevant feedstocks to usable products under zero gravity conditions. The bioreactor will be based on SB’s proprietary fermentation platform for converting a wide variety of waste streams into a multitude of usable products. SB’s bioreactor platform is simple, d ...

  4. Flash Drive Integrated Label Free Silicon Nano-Photonic Bio-Assays for Space Station Bio-Diagnostics

    SBC: Omega Optics, Inc.            Topic: T8

    Here, Omega Optics Inc. (OO), in collaboration with University of Texas (UT), Austin and Texas A&M University will develop a novel label-free photonic crystal (PC) micro-cavities based on-chip integrated electrically injected tunable transverse-coupled-cavity (TCC) vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) for high throughput diagnostic assays in early cancer detections. The device will ...

  5. Electronic Procedure Verification and Workflow Management System

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: A2

    Procedures play a large role in successfully operating complex test equipment. They provide step-by-step instructions for system check-out, experimental set-up, test plans, and responding to off-nominal situations. As NASA  moves away from traditional paper procedures to more flexible electronic procedures, there is an opportunity for a more flexible and efficient electronic procedure review, ...

  6. Flexible Agent-based Communications for Exploration

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: H6

    Because close collaboration between the crew and mission control will not be practical for inter-planetary exploration, NASA envisions the need for an intelligent autonomous agent that can continually integrate data from the spacecraft or lunar/planetary base to advise the crew during their mission. TRACLabs has designed and prototyped such an agent called a cognitive architecture for space explor ...

  7. Robust Lightweight CNT Wiring for Space Systems

    SBC: Dexmat Inc.            Topic: S3

    NASA is challenged to find ways of effectively shielding sensitive electronic equipment from electromagnetic interference (EMI) without adding significant weight to space flight vehicles and satellites (the heavier they are the more fuel they need to achieve orbit).  EMI shielding for wire and cables is an attractive opportunity for weight reduction. However, with the advent of highly reusabl ...

  8. ARCSTONE Improvements

    SBC: Resonon, Inc.            Topic: S1

    This SBIR Phase I effort will be devoted to exploring possible improvements for the NASA ARCSTONE instrument. One possible improvement will be to utilize total internal reflection optics for the fore-optics of the system. Possible benefits include reduced polarization and smaller size. A second possible improvement will be to use an optical design that requires only one focal plane array for the e ...

  9. Monolithically Integrated TCC VCSELs with Surface-Normal 2D Slow-Light PC Waveguide Arrays

    SBC: Omega Optics, Inc.            Topic: S1

    In this proposal, Dr. Dalir from Omega Optics Inc. (OO), in collaboration with University of Texas (UT) at Austin and the George Washington University propose a novel 2D TCC-VCSEL arrays monolithically integrated with a surface-normal slow-light photonic crystal (PC) waveguide array that are vertically built in one lithography layer.  Unlike conventional thinking where the waveguides in a pho ...

  10. Deep Learning Enhanced Fidelity InSAR Toolkit (DEFIT)

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: S5

    Lynntech, in collaboration with Southern Methodist University (SMU) Earth Sciences, proposes to develop a new deep learning-based toolkit that is useful for enhancing the fidelity of results derived from Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) interferograms. The automated deep learning tool performs a spatial–temporal analysis of multiple InSAR images, to yield a high fidelity esti ...
