  3. Advanced Receiver for Distressed Emitter Localization (ARDEL)

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: HSB0181002

    A majority of U.S. adults own a cell phone and are inclined to use it in emergency situations to call for assistance. Unfortunately, in areas where the density of cell towers is low, such as in rural and off-shore environments, the ability of the wireless network to geolocate the origin of the wireless signal is poor to non-existent. Under the proposed effort, Toyon Research Corporation will devel ...

  4. Remote Phone Locator for Improved Emergency Rescue

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: HSB0181002

    To address the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) need for a cell phone location finder for maritime and remote search and rescue (SAR), Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new REmote Phone Locator for Improved Emergency Rescue (REPLIER). REPLIER leverages novel techniques recently developed at POC to extend the range of cellular communications and integrate commercial cellu ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Infrared and Optical Wilderness Location and Surveillance System

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: HSB0171001

    To address the DHS need for providing U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) agents with an innovative agent-portable device to augment situational awareness in low light/adverse conditions, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes, in Phase II, to advance the new Infrared and Optical Wilderness Location and Surveillance (IROWL) system proven feasible in Phase I. IROWL is based on the unique integration of a ...

  9. Infrared and Optical Wilderness Location and Surveillance System

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: HSB0171001

    To address the DHS need, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new InfraRed and Optical Wilderness Location and Surveillance (IROWL) system based on the unique integration of a handheld spotting device, display, and compact multispectral zoom optics. The lightweight handheld device includes surveillance optics, infrared sensors, and display electronics to enable Border Patrol Age ...

  10. A Wearable Toxic Chemical Sensor Badge

    SBC: DESIGN WEST TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: HSB0171006

    Due to the high probability of exploiting common toxic industrial chemicals (TICs) as a weapon there is an increasing demand for rapid chemical detection technologies. A sensor that alerts the user of the presence of TICs independent of human interpretation is highly desirable. Furthermore, the sensor should be configurable as either a wearable badge or button so that it can be integrated as part ...
