Integrated Solutions For Systems
4970 Corporate Drive
Suite 100
Huntsville, AL 35805-6230

Proposal Information DHS SBIR-2012.1-H-SB012.1-001-0009-CRPP - Non-freezing Portable Vehicle Wash Tunnels
Topic Information H-SB012.1-001 - Non-freezing Portable Vehicle Wash Tunnels
Award/Contract Number D14PC00233

Our approach utilizes a mature, portable inflatable beam shelter to house modified commercial car wash equipment operated by an automated control system. The inflatable beam shelters are currently deployed with the US Military and are commonly used as decontamination shelters for military vehicles. The commercial wash equipment is modified to withstand the caustic chemical environment necessary to ensure sufficient decontamination. The entire tunnel wash system is deployed or stowed by 2 - 4 people in under 4 hours, operated by just 1 person, and packs into a common three-quarter ton pickup truck or van

Endeavor Systems
8300 Greensboro Drive
Suite 600
McLean , VA 22102-3604

Proposal Information DHS SBIR-2012.1-H-SB012.1-002-0006-CRPP - Multi-layer Ever-changing Self-defense Service (MESS)
Topic Information H-SB012.1-002 - Moving Target Defense
Award/Contract Number D14PC00224

Today's static IT systems allow adversaries time to plan and launch attacks. Endeavor proposes a Multi-layer, Ever changing, Self-defense Service (MESS) that is resilient and manageable. MESS prevents attackers from exploiting a target system by removing the static network & system attributes that simplify reconnaissance. Continuously refreshing the target system to a new virtual instance with a known trusted state and random service attributes, this limited-time-use virtual instance is comprised of a single application and OS combination and reduces system complexity. During Phase II, Endeavor will develop an application that will build on our successful Phase I MESS prototype. This application focuses on protecting web services, including web content delivery. Today, web security products detect and block attacks by enforcing acceptable use policies, and analyzing web traffic, content, etc. Powered by MESS allows multi-layer protections by deploying public interface obfuscation and live service migration technique. It conceals the public interface from adversaries and enables web services to self-defend and self-recover. application is a game-changing cyber defense system, not by detecting, but by concealing; not by blocking, but by cleaning. By Phase II completion, application will handle high traffic volume and multiple simultaneous connections, and be ready for the pilot/field test. Endeavor will work with clients and partners like DHS, Air Force, and McAfee to outline a pilot/field test plan. We'll develop a market plan for SaaS providers who can benefit directly from application as they have large attack surfaces and extensive virtualized infrastructure.

Radiance Technologies, Inc.
350 Wynn Drive
Huntsville, AL 35805-1961

Proposal Information DHS SBIR-2012.1-H-SB012.1-004-0015-CRPP - Virtual Shooter
Topic Information H-SB012.1-004 - Firearms and Ammunition Test Equipment
Award/Contract Number D15PC00193

The Phase II Virtual Shooter project objective is the design, development, fabrication, assembly, and test of a 6 degree-of-freedom (DOF) device which will fully simulate the recoil reactions of a wide range of human shooters, hand guns, and ammunition types. This program is based on the work now being completed under Phase I of SBIR topic no. H-SB012.1-004, contract number HSHQDC-12-C-00039, revised completion date Dec. 31, 2012. The work under this Phase I effort has produced a computer based dynamic shooter model based on extensive data acquired under the Phase I research effort. This model will be used as the basis for the primary objective of Phase II; the delivery of a complete 6DOF virtual shooter device to DHS S&T Directorate, National Firearms and Tactical Training Unit (NFTTU). This proposed Phase II program extends over two years, the first (base) year primary deliverable will be a prototype 6 DOF Virtual Shooter device demonstrating all of the basic capabilities desired by NFTTU. At the end of the second year a prototype production design will be demonstrated and delivered, ready for acceptance by DHS and for commercial sales. The initial TRL for the virtual shooter device at Phase II project inception is estimated to be 3. At the end of Phase II, the TRL is estimated to be 7 for the device.

Robotic Research, LLC
555 Quince Orchard Road
Suite 300
Gaithersburg, MD 20878-1426

Proposal Information DHS SBIR-2012.1-H-SB012.1-006-0006-CRPP - Sensor-Smart Affordable Autonomous Robotic Platforms (SAARP) CRPP
Topic Information H-SB012.1-006 - Swarm Robotic Sensing Platform for Search and Rescue
Award/Contract Number D15PC00194

Under the CRPP effort, Robotic Research (RR) focuses on two objectives. First, RR will conduct Crowdsourcing Competitions to Universities and the Public to populate the Library with additional verified designs. The idea is to attract the professional student, average hobbyist, and part-time tinkerer. Since 3D printers are becoming cheaper and more readily available, building your own customized 3D printable robots is becoming a reality. Robotic Research's goal for the future is to have 3D printers installed at various Hobby and Electronic stores which will also stock non-printable electrical components. Commercial users would log onto the SAARP Store from home, select a design, develop a custom design, print it at a local store, and retrieve the model and non-printable parts. Some users even have a 3D printer at home. In this case the non-printable parts can by shipped directly to them. Crowdsourcing will grow the SAARP Library greatly increasing its worth. The second part of the SAARP CRPP effort is to continue providing designs for the First Responders. Robotic Research will continue to provide inexpensive, easy to use, highly customizable robots to the First Responders at JIFXs events. At these events, many First Responder group Leads evaluate technologies to procure and provide to the men and women who need these devices. SAARP robots are inexpensive and perform the functions of robots costing $30,000 to $70,000 more than your average SAARP robot which comes in at about $900
