  1. 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 ...

  2. Advanced high-efficiency semiconductor neutron detectors of annular ring design

    SBC: Mocha Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal is for the design and development of advanced high-efficiency semiconductor thermal neutron detectors in both silicon and silicon carbide. These detectors will provide detectors with neutron conversion efficiency exceeding 40%, depending on detector configuration. The use of annular ring design features eliminates neutron streaming and other undesirable effects of previous perforated ...

  3. Nanorod Array Solid-State Neutron Detectors

    SBC: SYNKERA TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N/A

    In this Phase I SBIR project, Synkera proposes to develop and commercialize solid-state neutron detectors of a unique architecture that will enable sensor modules for a variety of operating environment. The neutron detectors are based around nanoporous anodic aluminum oxide, and will be fabricated using a combination of gas-phase and solution-based deposition methods. The detectors will incorporat ...

  4. QUANTIFICATION OF CONSERVATISMS IN SEISMIC RISK ESTIMATES THROUGH ENGINEERING ADVANCEMENT OF SEISMIC PRA

    SBC: Risk Engineering Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SIGNIFICANT CONSERVATISM IN MODERN SEISMIC PRA DERIVES FROM SIMPLIFICATIONS IN GROUND-MOTION CHARACTERIZATION AT THE INTERFACE OF SEISMIC HAZARD AND FRAGILITY METHODOLOGIES. THIS CONSERVATISM ARISES BECAUSE A SINGLE COMPOSITE-MAGNITUDE, BROAD-BAND, GROUND-MOTION SPECTRUM IS USED TO DERIVE FRAGILITY FUNCTIONS, WHEREAS THE MAJORITY OF MOTIONS CONTRIBUTING TO SITE HAZARD HAVE (LESS-DAMAGING) NARROW-B ...

  5. FASST Multimodal Biometric Screening

    SBC: SECURICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Multimodal biometrics for screening presents unique challenges. The evaluation of them presents even more challenges. The Securics team is leveraging 7 years of effort and past DARPA HID funding, on unique biometric evaluation approaches for measuring and comparing failure/performance predictions. The approach models what is important for a particular task and then learning the coefficients of the ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. MAXIS (Mobile Aircraft X-ray Inspection System

    SBC: Marietta X-Ray, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Marietta X-Ray, Inc (MXRI) and its subcontractor Rapiscan Laboratories, Inc. propose to develop a mobile non-intrusive prototype that can demonstrate the capability of inspecting a complete general-aviation aircraft for concealed contraband. Our solution utilizes an existing vehicle and manipulator coupled with an x-ray inspection system. The x-ray system is based on backscatter technology, which ...

  8. Robust Algorithm Development for Multidimensional Chemical Analysis

    SBC: NUMERICA CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Highly reliable detection of hazardous materials is a fundamental part of homeland security. Arrays of simple sensors can provide much of the sensitivity and selectivity of sophisticated sensors, but without the substantial hardware overhead. Unfortunately, such arrays are not without their challenges. The selectivity of such arrays can be realized only if the data is first distilled using advance ...
