  1. Flexible, High-Frequency, High-Durability, and Multifunctional Sensor Film

    SBC: NEWPORT SENSORS INC            Topic: 18OATS001

    DHS has an unmet need for measuring ultra-high-intensity, near-field blast overpressure caused by internal blast within a commercial aircraft explosive threat environment in order to facilitate characterization of blast effects to commercial aircraft structures.The goal of this DHS SBIR OATS project is to deliver advanced thin, flexible, conformable, multi-sensing-point film sensor technology for ...

  2. Bioinformatics: Data Integration for Biomonitoring Applications

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: DTRA162002

    Aret Associates and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) propose an interdisciplinary effort to further develop and validate a robust, operational biomonitoring application that can process soil microbiome data to reliably detect episodic and low-level chronic contamination while maintaining low false alarm rate.The Phase II SBIR work will build upon the successful Phase I proof-of-concept demonst ...

  3. DLeN: Deep Learning for standoff detection of Special Nuclear Material

    SBC: Clostra, Inc.            Topic: DTRA162001

    Deep Learning for standoff detection of Special Nuclear Material (DLeN) applies the same deep learning techniques that allow computers to beat human performance in image recognition and the game of Go to detecting Special Nuclear Material. Spectral analysis and signal processing can in some cases be augmented by the use of much larger neural nets that conduct much deeper analysis of features of th ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Optimizing Power Availability and Sustainability in Islanded Sites

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: DTRA152006

    To address the DTRA need for enhanced island-mode operation and strategies for defense critical infrastructure (DCI) in the event of commercial power grid loss or disruption due to an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) or high-power microwaves (HPMs), Physical Optics Corporation (POC) has developed an Optimizing power Availability and Sustainability in Islanded Sites (OASIS) methodology. This solution is ...

  6. Standoff Detection of VBIED and Suicide Bomber

    SBC: Energy Research Company            Topic: HSB072001

    Energy Research Company proposes the continued development of its proprietary technology, Laser Induced Acoustics (LIA), for standoff detection of VBIEDs and suicide bombers, and building a LIA based prototype suitable for high fidelity simulations. LIA uses a laser to interrogate a surface with the resulting acoustic signal indicating the presence of any explosive residues. In addition, we are us ...

  7. Intensity-Modulated Advanced X-ray Source (IMAXS)

    SBC: PTSE, Inc.            Topic: HSHQDC09C000

    We propose to build an Intensity-Modulated Advanced X-ray Source (IMAXS) for cargo inspection systems that allows such systems to achieve 1 to 2 inches greater penetration for dense cargo (steel or equivalent) while, on average, producing the same amount, or less, radiation. Alternatively, cargo inspection systems using the new design may opt to have the same penetration as with conventional sourc ...

  8. Novel Methods to Measure Penetrator Dynamics in Multi-Layer Geometries

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA07011

    In Phase I of this effort we analyzed the structural response of a BLU 109 during typical penetration events. Based on these finite element results, we proposed and demsonstrated a simple robust concept for a passive penetrator sensor that identifies the material being penetrated and also correlates strongly with its underground trajectory. Such a sensor would obviously provide valuable informatio ...

  9. Measuring Residual Concrete Strength After Penetration and Blast

    SBC: Intelligent Fiber Optic Systems Corporation            Topic: DTRA07010

    During Phase I, IFOS demonstrated the feasibility of using embedded optical Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) sensor networks to measure resistance to penetration (for subsequent weapons) in concrete damaged by a weapon projectile. FBG sensors are well suited for monitoring dynamic strain in concrete structures due to their small size, low cost, ability to be embedded internally or surface mounted; and th ...

  10. A fast pulse, portable fast neutron source for special nuclear materials detection

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: HSB072007

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corp proposes to develop a fast pulse, portable, fast neutron source to detect SNM in the field. Our source offers a less than 100ns neutron pulse with a repetition rate up to 100Hz. The goal is to develop a source with 1000hrs of continuous operation at greater than 1E8 n/s. The Phase II program will develop and validate a prototype for SNM detection. The commercial goal ...
