  1. An Advanced Algorithm for Radar Derived Bathymetry

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: 91

    NOAA can reduce costs and improve efficiency by remotely monitoring harbors, navigation channels and coastlines for bathymetric changes. This will aid NOAA and its mission to maintain waterways and assure maritime safety. This remote sensing can be accomplished by implementing a new radar derived bathymetry capability. Areté Associated proposes to implement an advanced algorithm to derive bath ...

  2. Preventing Program Hijacking via Static and Dynamic Analyses

    SBC: Zephyr Software, LLC            Topic: OSD11IA5

    To hijack the execution of a program, an attacker must overwrite the value of a return address or a function pointer (broadly defined). To prevent program hijacking, our product will provide a layered defense of these two targets, including deterministic and randomization defenses, with the ability in many cases to continue execution after a hijacking attempt is prevented. Our product toolkit incl ...

  3. Event Attribute Recognition and Labeling (EARL)

    SBC: DECISIVE ANALYTICS CORPORATION            Topic: OSD12LD5

    Existing information extraction technology can only partially address the problem of exploiting unreadably-large amounts text. When discussion of events is limited to simple, past-tense, factual descriptions of events, current NLP-based systems can ident

  4. Decision Support for Anomaly Detection and Recovery for Unmanned System (ADRUS)

    SBC: Knexus Research Corp.            Topic: OSD12AU1

    Deployment of unmanned systems continues to expand across a wide range of missions; for example, logistics and resupply missions, force application and protection, and improving battlespace awareness. Presently these unmanned systems run at the lowest of four possible levels of autonomy, that is, in a teleoperated mode, and each system typically requires multiple operators. To address this proble ...

  5. Buoy Guard System

    SBC: McQ Inc.            Topic: 93

    Buoy vandalism occurs all over the world for many different reasons, and costs NOAA and other buoy operators an estimated $1 million annually to replace and repair them. To deter vandals and report any vandal attempts to NOAA, McQ has developed the Buoy Guard System (BGS). BGS is a small, extremely low power sensor system that will detect the presence of intruders first approaching and then boa ...

  6. Active Software Defense to Reduce Threat Capability Effectiveness

    SBC: Power Fingerprinting, Inc            Topic: OSD11IA6

    In order to better protect critical infrastructure from cyber attacks, perimeter and passive defenses must be complemented with an active defense mechanism which elevates the risks, or costs, a potential attacker will face. The effectiveness of an active defense mechanism, however, is ultimately limited by its ability to detect threats fast, accurately, and reliably. For this Phase II project, we ...

  7. A Diode Laser Multigas Analyzer for Advanced Detection of Fires

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Southwest Sciences will develop a novel fire detection technology based on optical spectroscopy, using diode lasers and fiber optics. Rapid, quantitative detection of part per million concentrations (or better) of multiple gases, including carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, hydrogen cyanide, hydrogen chloride, and a fiber optical distribution network permits one laser to be used for at least 800 di ...

  8. Analysis and Improvement of Trivalent Chromium Conversion Coatings for Aluminum Alloys

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    The trend toward replacement of highly toxic chemicals with less hazardous alternatives has created the demand for replacement of chromate conversion coatings for corrosion protection of aluminum alloys. Aluminum alloys are the predominate structural material used in aircraft because of their high strength-to-weight ratios, affordability and processability. Aluminum is subject to catastrophic fail ...

  9. SMART SENSORS USING OPTICAL FIBER INTERCONNECTS AND DISTRIBUTED MEMS

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR program would develop practical methods for the interconnection, addressing and control of large numbers of distributed MEMS-based sensing and actuation elements using optical fiber multiplexing techniques. Such interconnected sensor/actuator arrays have immediate and long-term applications in the instrumentation and control of adaptive aircraft, spacecraft and hydrocraft structures, fl ...

  10. Digital Intelligence Situation Mapboard for Enhanced Situation Awareness

    SBC: Trident Systems Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    Current battlefield situation displays either lack resolution ir restrict the user's perception to a small segment of the battlefield. Additionally, the plotting of data on these displays is extremely manpower-intensive, consuming valuable personnel resources that could be applied to situation analysis and other important tasks. Trident proposes to design and produce an innovative situation awar ...
