  2. 002: Improved Wipes for Surface Sampling of Chemical Agents on Porous Materials

    Release Date: 04-29-2011Open Date: 05-12-2011Due Date: 06-28-2011Close Date: 06-28-2011

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has a need for a novel surface wipe material that more efficiently removes low volatility chemical agent contamination from porous and absorptive surfaces (e.g., uncoated and coated concrete, painted wallboard, unglazed ceramic tile) than current cellulosic-based, gauze-type, wipe materials. The novel wipe material will further demonstrate the ability to q ...

  4. 004: Short Standoff Checkpoint Detection System for Explosives

    Release Date: 04-29-2011Open Date: 05-12-2011Due Date: 06-28-2011Close Date: 06-28-2011

    Checkpoint security incorporates a wide variety of screening technologies and processes to detect person-borne threats and illicit objects, including weapons and explosives. Individuals attempting to circumvent checkpoint security have resorted to a variety of techniques to avoid detection, including hiding threat or illicit objects, but minute quantities of trace explosives may remain on their pe ...

  5. 005: Iris Image Quality Tool Suite for Biometric Recognition

    Release Date: 04-29-2011Open Date: 05-12-2011Due Date: 06-28-2011Close Date: 06-28-2011

    Biometric system performance depends on the quality of the acquired input samples. If sample quality can be improved, whether by sensor design, user interface design, or standards compliance, better performance can be realized. For those aspects of quality that cannot be designed-in, an ability to analyze the image and identify recognition-related defects and problems is needed. The ability to qui ...

  9. H-SB018.1-004: Deterministic Augmentation of RF Transmissions for PNT

    Release Date: 12-15-2017Open Date: 12-15-2017Due Date: 01-17-2018Close Date: 01-17-2018

    This SBIR topic seeks a novel approach to identify and augment existing RF transmissions not originally intended for PNT to aid PNT. The solution may include augmenting the data content of the transmission, augmenting the modulation, coding, or other baseband features of the transmission, or augmenting the RF waveform directly.
