  2. Nanomachine Device for Semiconductor Process Control Monitoring

    SBC: Xallent LLC            Topic: None

    Conventional characterization and test methods are increasingly ineffective when applied to structures less than 100 nanometers, causing challenges across R&D, process control and failure analysis. An increasing number of subtle defects become prominent drivers of failure as device size and operating margins decrease, e.g., processing anomalies in thin gate oxides, substrate problems related to do ...

  3. Gap-Free Model-Based Engineering for Manufacturing and Analysis: Digital Thread without Translation

    SBC: Nvariate, Inc.            Topic: None

    Modern Model-Based Enterprise / Engineering (MBE) systems rely on freeform surfaces built as complex combinations of geometric primitives to define engineered objects. Unfortunately, the intersection of freeform surfaces in MBE applications results in highly approximated solutions, degrading models that cost billions annually by US industry to fix. Current technology limits the abilities of users ...

  4. Easy-to-use, Autonomous Bin-picking and Assembly Operations for the Manufacturing Industry

    SBC: Robotic Materials Inc.            Topic: None

    We will develop a series of object manipulation primitives to pick up and assemble standard mechanical parts such as screws, gears and pulleys that can be configured without any programming skills. Building up on a smart robotic gripper, 3D perception and machine learning algorithms, we will design a graphical user interface for the Universal Robot E-Series that allows an user to label arbitrary 3 ...

  5. Multimode Chiroptical Spectrometer for Nanoparticle Characterization

    SBC: Applied Nanofluorescence LLC            Topic: None

    This project will develop a new scientific instrument optimized for the advanced characterization of near-infrared fluorescent nanoparticles that can exist as left- or right-handed structures (enantiomers). Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) are the leading current example of such nanomaterials. Applied NanoFluorescence, LLC (ANF) proposes a novel multi-mode chiroptical spectrometer that can ...

  6. Concept of Operations for Reach-Back Capability for Fielded Rapid DNA Systems

    SBC: SNA International, LLC            Topic: HSB0191001

    Currently, there is no analytical reach-back support or Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) laboratory (lab) within Department of Homeland Security (DHS) accredited to review DNA results using the Office of Biometric Identity Management (OBIM) DNA Store/Match/Share capability. The purpose of Phase I is to analyze the feasibility of developing an accredited DHS reach-back capability to review results from ...

  7. Response to DHS Small Business Innovation Research Program

    SBC: Bode Cellmark Forensics, Inc.            Topic: HSB0191001

    Rapid DNA analysis has the potential to be a paradigm shifting technology in the realm of forensic human identification and make DNA the ultimate biometric.Where confirmation of suspects relating to evidence, confirmation of familial relationships in a multitude of applications, or obtaining identification of human remains could have once taken months or years, rapid DNA enables this to be complet ...

  8. Dynamic AccessID Network and Toolkit

    SBC: WAVERLEY LABS, L.L.C.            Topic: HSB0191002

    First generation ICAM systems are long overdue for improvements because identity federation and managing access based upon ICAM guidelines during emergencies is still non-existent. Existing ICAM solutions are closed, place onerous restrictions on the trust mechanism, do not account for mobile environments and are static in nature. The innovation proposed will, for the first time, provide the abili ...

  9. 9-1-1 Network Modeling Based Upon PARIDINE NIDE Model

    SBC: SECURELOGIX CORPORATION            Topic: HSB0191007

    SecureLogix is a current performer on the PARIDINE project and is focused on defining and detecting NIDEs such as Telephony Denial of Service (TDoS) and other call pattern-based attacks against 9-1-1 networks. Our approach is to enhance our cloud-based Call Authentication Service (CAS), extending its inherent authentication and spoofing detection capabilities, with the ability to use machine learn ...

  10. Blockchain Forensic Analytics

    SBC: Integra FEC LLC            Topic: HSB0191008

    As blockchain technologies continue to evolve and emerge, DHS and numerous other Federal agencies have an increasing need to trace new cryptocurrencies and cryptotokens to support investigations and enforcement actions. Some new cryptocurrencies, such as Zcash and Monero, are designed to provide anonymity to users and thus pose challenges to enforcement agencies looking to track and curtail illici ...
