  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 ...

  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. 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. 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 ...

  6. 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 and relocatable 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 t ...

  7. Tamper-Proof Bolt Seal Materials Using Multilayered Shape Memory Polymers

    SBC: POLYMERPLUS LLC            Topic: HSB0151002

    PolymerPlus proposes a SBIR program to develop and commercialize multilayered polymer films with shape memory properties, as a tamper-proof low-cost bolt seal and plastic seal anti-tamper device. The technological foundation for this innovation includes using two or more commercial polymers to produce multilayered films with thermal, humidity, or optical shape memory properties capable of undergoi ...

  8. Personal Neutron Detector Based on Cadmium Telluride

    SBC: LITHIUM INNOVATIONS COMPANY, LLC            Topic: HSB0151009

    Lithium Innovations will explore the fabrication of a prototype, low-cost neutron detector based on a Li-6 sensitized cadmium-telluride semiconductor detector. The detector will be demonstrated to have high sensitivity to thermal neutrons, be very robust and configured as a pager neutron detector. The effort will build on Lithium Innovations unique expertise in forming lithium sheets for sputter t ...

  9. 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 ...

  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 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 ...
