  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  9. SNAPSHOT: A System for Predicting Human Physical Traits from Sample DNA

    SBC: PARABON NANOLABS, INC.            Topic: DTRA102007

    OBJECTIVE: Develop a Forensic DNA Analysis Kit for Genetic Intelligence that can be used on unknown human DNA samples collected from the battlefield to provide information about the individual who deposited the sample, such as potential ethnicity, height, eye color, hair color, age, sex, and/or facial features. The kit should leverage Short Tandem Repeats (STR), Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (S ...

  10. Numerical Model of Subsurface Transport of Noble Gases in Fractured Geologic Media for Detection and Identification of Subsurface Nuclear Explosion Te

    SBC: MODERN TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: DTRA111002

    Surface detection of specific radioisotopes of the noble gases xenon and argon are essential for detection and discrimination of underground nuclear explosions. We propose a unique combination of numerical modeling and stable isotope release experiments to enhance the predictability of subsurface transport of the noble gases of interest. Our proposed research will identify and quantify the physi ...
