  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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Wearable Smart Chemical Sensors

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: HSB0171006

    Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs) are a great concern for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) since they would be easier for terrorists to obtain and use than Chemical Warfare Agents (CWAs). Hence, a wearable low cost (less than $50) multi-gas sensor is needed to alert first responders to the type and level of hazard they face. Such wearable sensors will also find use in the much bigger ...

  5. Improved Firefighter Face Piece Lenses for Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus

    SBC: PolyNew, Inc            Topic: HSB0111006

    This multiphase project develops higher heat resistant materials for use in face shields of self-contained breathing apparatuses (SCBAs) and brings them to commercial markets. Key findings of the Phase I work are that polyethersulfone (PES) is a promising replacement for polycarbonate (PC) with respect to thermal and optical properties. However, PES has considerably lower mechanical impact strengt ...

  6. Helmet-Mounted Thermal Sensor for First Responder Burn-Saver Device

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: HSB0131003

    The personal protective equipment (PPE) worn by firefighters protects them against burns and hazardous environments. This equipment works so well that they may not notice that their environment has become so hot that is no longer safe. Although current thermal sensor technologies (generally built in to Personal Alert Safety System (PASS) units) can trigger an alarm when the temperature is too hig ...

  7. HIGH SENSITIVITY LANDFILL MONITOR

    SBC: Shonka Research Associates            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED RESEARCH WILL PROVIDE PROOF OF PRINCIPLE OF NEWRADIATION DETECTION TECHNOLOGY THAT WHEN FULLY DEVELOPED WILL PREVENT INADVERTENT DISPOSAL OF RADIOACTIVE MATERIAL INLANDFILLS AND SEWAGES. THE TECHNOLOGY WILL PROVIDE ORDER OFMAGNITUDE IMPROVEMENT IN DETECTION OVER CONVENTIONAL SYSTEMS. THE TECHNOLOGY WILL PROVIDE FIELD RUGGED AND COST COMPETITIVE DEVICES. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH WILL PROV ...

  8. TASK NETWORK MODELING OF HUMAN OPERATIONS IN NUCLEAR POWER PLANT CONTROL ROOMS

    SBC: Micro Analysis & Design Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSE OF THIS EFFORT IS TO STUDY THE FEASIBILITY OF AND, HOPEFULLY, VALIDATE THE USE OF TASK NETWORK MODELING TOSTUDY HUMAN FACTORS IN THE CONTROL ROOM. TASK NETWORK MODELING EXTENDS A HUMAN ENGINEERING TASK ANALYSIS INTO A COMPUTER MODEL. WE PROPOSE THAT PERTURBING THE INDIVIDUAL TASKS IN A TASK NETWORK MODEL IN A MANNER PREDICTED FROM CONTROL ROOM DESIGN CHANGES, TASK AUTOMATION, OR THE CO ...

  9. CHARACTERIZATION OF CONCRETE CONDITION USING ACOUSTIC TOMOGRAPHIC IMAGING

    SBC: Atkinson-noland Assoc. Inc.            Topic: N/A

    RESIDUAL LIFETIME EVALUATION OF EXISTING NUCLEAR FACILITIES REQUIRES DETAILED INFORMATION REGARDING CONDITION OF CONTAINMENT AND SUPPORT STRUCTURES. CURRENT NONDESTRUCTIVE METHODS FOR SUBSURFACE EVALUATION OF REINFORCED CONCRETE USE COMPLEX EQUIPMENT AND RELY HEAVILY ON INTERPRETATION BY THE OPERATOR. A RESEARCH EFFORT IS PROPOSED TO EXAMINE THE USE OF COMPUTERIZED TOMOGRAPHIC IMAGING FOR LOCATING ...

  10. 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 ...
