  2. Virtual Source Training Toolkit

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: HSB0161011

    Physical Sciences, Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop a Virtual Source Training Toolkit that will reduce the cost of training personnel to detect and localize a radiological source. The toolkit will be able to simulate the response of a handheld radiation detector to a virtual source using a COTS smart device and Bluetooth beacon network. The toolkit will include easy-to-use interfaces to guide the ...

  3. Multi-Signature Composite Detector

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: HSB0161012

    Radiation Monitoring Devices (RMD) has proposed a composite detector technology for multi-mode detection, based on incorporation of the inorganic scintillation material into an organic host such as the plastic scintillator, suitable for handheld and backpack applications. Plastic scintillator serves as an optical light guide, and can additionally provide gamma and fast neutron detection and pulse ...

  4. CVD Diamond Neutron Detectors with Pulse Shape Discrimination

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 0812

    Proliferation of nuclear weapons is a serious threat in the world today. One way to determine the presence of nuclear weapons is to detect neutrons emitted by special nuclear material (SNM) such as highly enriched uranium and weapons grade plutonium. The purpose of this project is to develop improved solid state neutron detectors from CVD diamond for homeland security applications. During Phase II ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Cyber Attack Prediction for Situational Understanding and Preemptive Cyber Defense

    SBC: BlueRISC Inc            Topic: HSB0161003

    BlueRISC's proposed solution provides a fundamentally new approach to predicting the presence of malware in a network based on a novel graph-theoretical framework. Unlike traditional approaches that are reactive, it builds on a predictive capability that is flexible, adaptive, and is not relying on signatures or strict rule based malware definitions. The approach captures system motion as a predic ...

  7. Smart Sensing and Tracking with Video and Mote Sensor Collaboration

    SBC: INTUVISION            Topic: HSB081005

    With growing concerns about the security of our borders and vulnerable entry points video imagery has emerged as a high potential surveillance data source for generating real time situational information. This potential comes with its challenges due to the large volumes of data need to be processed, lack of smart sensors to automatically detect and understand video content, bandwidth limitations t ...

  8. PCS-Enabled Unattended Radiation Detection and Attribution System

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: HSB0171009

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop a PCS-Enabled Unattended Radiation Detection and Attribution System (PURDAS) that will be able to detect, identify, and attribute radiological sources to specific source carriers or conveyances. The PURDAS will include a COTS gamma and neutron detection capability as well as a visible camera, onboard processing, and wireless radios. PURDAS units wil ...

  9. Unattended Node for Integrated Radiation Detection and Communication

    SBC: Silverside Detectors Inc.            Topic: HSB0171009

    The specific technical opportunity to be addressed is to take advantage of the current state-of-the-art technology available in the radiation detection space to develop a new Unattended Radiation Detection System (URDS) that will enable rapid deployment and signal integration into the end user's Security Network Platform (SNP). The objective of the Phase I effort is to evaluate component tradeoffs ...

  10. Wearable Smart Chemical Sensors

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: HSB0171006

    Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs) are chemical substances that produce toxic effects if given in sufficient quantities and/or exposed for long durations. TICs are a great concern for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) since it would be easier for terrorists to obtain and use than CAs. There are many commercially available handheld and personal gas monitors to monitor TICs. However, the ...
