  1. Personal Neutron Detector Based on Cadmium Telluride

    SBC: LITHIUM INNOVATIONS COMPANY, LLC            Topic: HSB0151009

    In this Phase II SBIR project, Lithium Innovations, in partnership with Lucintech Inc, will build on the success of its innovative thin-film neutron detector developed and tested in Phase I. The detector is based on the use of a metallic lithium-6 sensitizer layer paired with a thin-film CdS/CdTe heterojunction to detect the alpha and triton charged particles produced by the n + Li-6 reaction. Th ...

  2. High Speed Non Ionizing Terahertz Measurement System to Replace Nuclear Gages

    SBC: TeraMetrix, LLC            Topic: HSB061010

    We propose a Phase II project to develop and prototype a flexible time-domain terahertz (TD-THz) instrument that can be marketed to customers currently utilizing nuclear source gauges. While nuclear gauges are an established technology, their radiological sources present on-going safety, security, regulation, and disposal concerns. A primary goal of this project is to establish that; when all tech ...

  4. The Accelerator in a Suitcase for Isotope Replacement

    SBC: Euclid Beamlabs, LLC            Topic: HSB0161013

    Few-MeV linac-based X-ray machines are widely used for radiotherapy, cargo inspection, and industrial radiography. These machines are large, weighing several tons. Several years ago truck mounted systems extended the reach of this technology into field applications like bridge inspection. Recently man-portable systems were introduced, which typically are comprised of three modules that can be inde ...

  5. Decision Support Toolkits for Sytem of Systems Level Risk Modeling

    SBC: MICHIGAN ENGINEERING SERVICES LLC            Topic: 19OATS002

    DHS is preserving the safety and the security of America by preventing, foiling, and defeating attacks from a variety of adversaries. The increasing threats (both in terms of numbers and in terms of abilities) must be addressed successfully while facing an austere budget environment. In order to be able to "do more with less" having a capability for optimizing the resources and the assets which ar ...

  6. Ground-Based Autonomous Robotic Inspection of General Aviation for Radiological Threats

    SBC: NuHorizon Technologies, LLC            Topic: HSB0181009

    The goal of this project is to develop a ground robotic system that performs automated radiological screening of general aviation aircraft. The robotic system will integrate a commercial off-the-shelf mobile platform, a manipulator arm, and radiation detectors with 3D vision sensors and path planning software to produce a highly-automated, robust solution for initial and secondary aircraft screeni ...

  7. Miniature and Reliale Chemical Sensors for Cell Phones

    SBC: SYNKERA TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: HSB081002

    In the event of a terrorist attack, the ability to measure the extent and location of the attack and rapidly notify first responders will be critical to saving lives. If the widespread use of cell phones could be harnessed with an ability to detect chemical threats and immediately notify authorities of the scope and location of the attack, public safety would be significantly enhanced. Synkera pro ...

  9. Mobile High-Intensity X-Ray Source Based on a 10 MeV Superconducting Electron Linac

    SBC: Niowave, Inc.            Topic: HSB0141007

    In the post 9/11 security environment, rapid cargo inspection that does not impede the flow of commerce has become a high priority. Cargo scanning using either radiographic imaging or active interrogation for Special Nuclear Material (SNM) requires high energy and high intensity x-rays. High intensity x-ray sources are especially important for active interrogation techniques such as prompt neut ...

  10. Photochemical ClO2 Decontaminant for Biological Agent Neutralization

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: HSB0142001

    DHS requires the ability to respond to an attack with biological agents. Specifically, it requires a decontaminant to kill anthrax spores on building exteriors and interiors, and even large outdoor areas. In this proposal we describe an innovative bio-agent decon technology that is particularly suitable for decon over wide areas; and as far as we are aware, no other technology in development can ...
