  1. Mitigation of Contact Lens, Eye Surgery, Pupil Dilation, and Other Challenges in Iris Recognition

    SBC: Member of the Family LLC            Topic: HSB0111005

    Member of the Family LLC`s (MOTF) proposal is designed to study and analyze the effects of contact lens usage, eye surgery and various types of pupil dilation as they relate to the accuracy and performance of current iris recognition systems. MOTF`s study will be based on clinical data that will be gathered in both hospital and private practice settings. This will assure that we include in the stu ...

  2. Mitigation of Contact Lenses, Eye Surgery, Pupil Dilation, and Other Challenges in Iris Recognition

    SBC: PROGENY SYSTEMS CORPORATION            Topic: HSB0111005

    Iris recognition is an established and successful biometric technology. It is used in clearing travelers in the UK, for border control in the UAE, and as a part of India`s Unique ID program. However, there are still significant challenges to be addressed as iris recognition matures to successfully handle ongoing national-scale applications. Our recent work has documented challenges involving pupil ...

  3. Identification of Test Materials and Test Plan for Improved Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus Face Piece Lenses

    SBC: MPR Associates, Inc.            Topic: HSB0111006

    Currently, SCBA lenses are made from high-heat polycarbonate with a maximum service temperature rating of 275 deg F to 383 deg F. However, first responders may encounter temperatures due to fire reaching 1000 deg F to 1400 deg F at face level with a heat flux density of about 2.2 W/sq-cm. Developing a more durable, high-heat resistant lens will significantly improve firefighter safety and enable f ...

  4. Acoustic Vector Sensor

    SBC: PROGENY SYSTEMS CORPORATION            Topic: HSB0112001

    U.S. Customs and Border Protection wants to extend unattended ground sensor (UGS) functionality to provide a real-time capability to track targets of interest. Progeny will develop Acoustic Vector Sensor (AVS) as a low-cost and low-power augment sensor to track airborne targets, with a small covert form factor and connecting to other UGS with a standard serial data and power interface. AVS has a c ...

  5. Three Dimensional Acoustic Sensing Unit (3DASU)

    SBC: Signal Systems Corporation            Topic: HSB0112001

    SSC proposes a low power tri-axial acoustic sensor that leverages our existing acoustic chambered design to provide a directional sensor that has high sensitivity, rugged construction with low power consumption. Our approach extends prototypes developed under DoD sponsorship, including DARPA, Army, Navy and Special Forces efforts. Our innovative chambered design provides a large physical aperture ...

  6. Iris Image Quality Tool Suite for Biometric Recognition

    SBC: PROGENY SYSTEMS CORPORATION            Topic: HSB0112005

    Iris recognition is an established and successful biometric technology. It is used in clearing travelers in the UK, for border control in the UAE, and as a part of Indias Unique ID program. However, there remain significant challenges to be addressed as iris recognition matures into a viable technology which can successfully handle applications at a national level. One such important issue that th ...

  7. Natural Language Processing and Prioritization for Contextual Symbolic Rendering

    SBC: Digital Sandbox Inc.            Topic: HSB0112006

    With the desire to be prepared for possible threat scenarios, DHS has access to data, but it can be disparate with a mix of structured and unstructured data in very large quantities. Information from a variety of sources needs to be ingested and processed in order to determine the "what, when, where, and how bad", then presented geospatially for monitoring and analysis purposes. Constructing and m ...

  8. Methods to Unlock PIN/PUK Codes from SIM Cards

    SBC: EWA Government Systems, Inc.            Topic: HSB0112003

    This SBIR Phase I project for subtopic 2 under topic H-SB011.2-003 will develop technology to successfully decrypt SIM cards by acquiring or bypassing personal identity number (PIN) and personal unlocking key (PUK) codes from locked SIM cards. Cellphones and other mobile devices play an increasing role in criminal and terrorist activity. SIM cards lock either with a PIN or PUK that disables direct ...

  9. HOLOGRAPHIC PATTERN RECOGNITION FOR ARMS CONTROL

    SBC: EMPIRICAL TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    THE CONTRACTOR HAS PATENTED TECHNOLOGY FOR A UNIQUE PROCESS THAT DIRECTLY CONVERTS AN ACOUSTIC SIGNAL INTO A VISIBLE ONE IN REAL-TIME WITHOUT ELECTRONIC CIRCUITRY. THIS RELIES ON THE ACOUSTO-OPTICAL PROPERTIES OF A CONTINUOUS LAYER OF LIQUID CRYSTAL THIN FILM LAYER WHICH SERVES AS BOTH THE SENSOR AND THE DISPLAY. THE IMAGE CAN BE VIEWED DIRECTLY BY MEANS OF CCD CAMERA. HOLOGRAPHY PROVIDES FOR BOTH ...

  10. Heterdyne Interferometer for Triggering Gas Puff PRSs

    SBC: HY-Tech Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Large X-ray generators using gas fill loads are a key element in the DTRA simulator program. Consistent relative timing between the injection of the gas shell and the generator current pulse is crucial to producing consistent, high-yield x-ray pulses.To that end HY-Tech proposes replacing existing high voltage trigger pin technology, with a sensitive, all fiber-optic heterodyne interferometer ba ...
