  1. Direct Performance Evaluation of Additive Manufacturing Process Plans

    SBC: INTACT SOLUTIONS INC.            Topic: None

    Additive manufacturing is steadily advancing towards fulfilling its promise of customized and on-demand production of functional parts. However, performance of as-manufactured parts can differ significantly from the as-designed parts because the as-manufactured geometry differs from the as-designed geometry and the asmanufactured material properties are not known. Attempts to predict performance o ...

  2. Wearable Liquid Crystal Based Chemical Sensor Badge for the Identification of Toxic Industrial Chemicals

    SBC: Platypus Technologies, LLC            Topic: HSB0171006

    Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs) pose significant dangers to human health upon exposure. Unfortunately, emergency responders are unwittingly exposed to these TICs while responding and containing crisis situations, leading increased risk for disease. To protect emergency responders against dangerous exposure to chemicals, Platypus Technologies will develop a wearable chemical sensor badge that c ...

  3. Foreign Like Weapon Production Capability

    SBC: McNally Industries, LLC            Topic: SOCOM172003

    The proposed Phase I effort is to complete a feasibility review of all innovative technology options that can be implemented in Phase II in order to evaluate, reverse engineer, reengineer, design, draft, fabricate, machine, coat, assemble and test facsimiles of foreign like weapons described in the topic announcement. McNally's solution is based on our years of experience in reverse engineering s ...

  4. Raw Data Generation Tool for X-ray Security Imaging Systems

    SBC: TELESECURITY SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: HSB0141003

    The X-ray intensity as measured by detectors depends on all aspects of the imaging system ranging from the source spectrum to various scatter events during the photon transport. The proposed simulator models the entire X-ray detection process from photon generation to various scatter events to the eventual detection of transmitted/scattered photons. In particular, the simulator models the two impo ...

  5. Bulk Currency Vapor detection in Confined Spaces

    SBC: Nevada Nanotech Systems Inc.            Topic: HSB0132001

    The proposed goal of Nevada Nanotech Systems Inc for the Phase II program is to adapt a commercially available gas chromatograph-mass spectrometer instrument for the problem of detecting U.S. currency via unique vapor signature in confined spaces and then field test three prototype units, operated by government personnel, during a 6-month field test. After this test, we will provide detailed docu ...

  6. Automatic Threat Recognition Algorithm for Volumetric CT Data

    SBC: TELESECURITY SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: HSB0122002

    For Phase II work, we propose to complete the development of the DICOS compliant ATR algorithm whose feasibility has been demonstrated by results of Phase I work. Important project milestones for the first base year of Phase II are as follows: (1) implementation of the DICOS standard including network protocol, (2) improvement of the proposed ATR algorithm in terms of explosive detection performan ...

  7. Query-Based Interoperability for Simulation of Composite Structures

    SBC: INTACT SOLUTIONS INC.            Topic: 9020673R

    We propose to design and implement a query-based approach to interoperable modeling and simulation of composite material structures, that usually contain the manufacturing recipe within their design. In Phase I, we established the feasibility of the approach using a demonstration scenario of CAD/CAE interoperability for assemblies. In Phase II, we propose to develop a series of use-case scenarios ...

  8. Bulk Currency Vapor detection in Confined Spaces

    SBC: Nevada Nanotech Systems Inc.            Topic: HSB0132001

    The proposed goal of Nevada Nanotech Systems Inc for the Phase I program is to select a practical technological solution and develop a Con-Ops for the problem of detecting U.S. currency via unique vapor signature(s) in confined spaces for three related, though unique, application scenarios (bags, vehicles, and shipping containers). Nevada Nano will document a matrix of technical and operational re ...

  9. Automatic Threat Recognition Algorithm for Volumetric CT Data

    SBC: TELESECURITY SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: HSB0122002

    This Phase I proposal describes the development of an Automatic Threat Recognition (ATR) algorithm for volumetric CT data. Our ATR algorithm consists of four stages: (1) preprocessing of CT data, (2) object segmentation of preprocessed CT data, (3) post-processing of segmentation results, and (4) explosive detection from the segmented objects. The ATR algorithm will be made computationally efficie ...

  10. Image Quality Assessment Toolkit for X-ray Imaging Systems

    SBC: TELESECURITY SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: HSB0122003

    This Phase I proposal describes (1) an automated image quality assessment (IQA) software to objectively quantify image quality of airport security X-ray imaging systems for both checked and carry-on baggage and (2) a design for a novel test phantom specialized for security CT scanners. For fixed images, automated algorithms will measure the Modulation Transfer Function (MTF) and Contrast-to-Noise ...
