  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 screenin ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  8. 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 other surfaces. 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 be used o ...

  9. 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 ...

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

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: HSB0131003

    The personal protective equipment (PPE) worn by firefighters (turnout Gear, SCBA, helmet, etc.) protects the wearer against burns and hazardous environments. Unfortunately, they work so well that they decrease the firefighter's situational awareness, in particular their ability to notice rapidly increasing temperatures. Although current thermal sensor technologies (generally built in to the Pers ...
