  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. Stilbene Production for Fast Neutron Detection

    SBC: INRAD OPTICS, INC.            Topic: 111001

    The detection of neutrons is a critical capability for the identification of special nuclear materials in homeland security applications. Both plutonium and uranium can be detected by their neutron signatures. Next-generation detectors should efficiently detect fission neutrons, even in a high background of gamma rays. Neutron detection systems consisting of 3He have found widespread use due to th ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  10. Sensor Fusion Software to aid in response and evacuation of subterranean incidents

    SBC: DAX TECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL            Topic: HSB071002

    The speed at which an attack is detected is a critical trigger for all responses to follow. The accurate determination of the type of attack will determine the type of emergency personnel and response needed. The location will determine the target response area as well as determine by proximity which of the responders that are available can be first on the scene. Therefore, a system that can do th ...
