  1. Virtual Shooter

    SBC: RADIANCE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: HSB0121004

    The Phase I project seeks to develop a design basis for a firearm testing device which will provide a "virtual shooter" for the operation and measurement of handgun and ammunition performance. The reactions of real human shooters will be measured as a function of the specific firing action results of the test weapon on the human physiology. A six degree-of-freedom (6DOF) model will be developed ...

  2. Kappler SBIR-2012.2-005

    SBC: Kappler, Inc            Topic: HSB0122005

    Kappler proposes to develop a novel fabric composite that when constructed into Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) garments, provides protection to the wearer from multiple threats. The proposed research set forth by Kappler, Inc. is innovative in that it augments current Kappler base fabrics that protect from chemical, biologic, and flame hazards, but will now include protection from ballistic ...

  3. Anion Exchange Resin for Chirality-based Separation of Single-wall Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: Sepax Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Sepax Technologies, Inc. has identified a new type of anoin-exchange resin which separates single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) with >80% recovery yield and resolves in a single pass the chiral tubes of (6,5) well from commercial SWCNT starting materials by Chromatography. Improvement and scale up of the targeted resin production will facilitate the separation of chiral nanotubes for the academic ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Non-freezing Portable Vehicle Wash Tunnels

    SBC: Integrated Solutions For Systems, Inc.            Topic: HSB0121001

    Our approach utilizes a mature, portable inflatable beam shelter to house modified commercial car wash equipment operated by an automated control system. The inflatable beam shelters are currently deployed with the US Military and are commonly used as decontamination shelters for military vehicles. The commercial wash equipment is modified to withstand the caustic chemical environment necessar ...

  7. A Novel, Low Power, High Throughput, High Efficiency, Scalable Electrostatic Bioaerosol Sampler

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: HSB041003

    Current bioaerosol monitoring strategies rely on inertia-based sampling and suffer from high power consumption and low efficiency limitations. In contrast, our overall objective is to design and demonstrate a novel electrostatic sampler that provides dramatic improvements including low power requirement (90% for 1-10mm), high viability (>80%), scalability for varying threat scenarios, low noise, a ...

  8. CMOS FET and AlGaN MODFET Receptor Scaffold for Molecular Recognition and Direct Detection

    SBC: Peterson Ridge LLC            Topic: N/A

    This project is designed to test a novel receptor scaffold/sensor combination for the selective and direct measurement of antigens and to compare direct electric detection of antigens against the corresponding antibody based ELISA method. The scaffold concept combines a robust nucleic acid receptor (aptamer) coupled to a low cost CMOS FET and AlGaN MODFET transducer. Aptamers are short nucleic aci ...

  9. Marine Asset Tag Using Near Field Electromagnetic Ranging

    SBC: Q-Track Corporation            Topic: N/A

    We propose a Marine Asset Tag Tracking System (MATTS) using a breakthrough wireless tracking technology called near field electromagnetic ranging (NFER¿). The primary objective of Phase I is to validate that NFER¿ technology is the best RF solution for tracking containers on ships and in ports. Phase I will also (1) develop an overall architecture for the MATTS; (2) design the container tag; ...

  10. See-Thru-Eye

    SBC: Technology International Incorporated of Virginia            Topic: HSB041007

    This Phase I SBIR research effort involves a feasibility study and an in-depth investigation into technologies that would be applied in ship compartment inspection to ensure full space accountability. A trade study will identify the most promising technology to develop and design a handheld, man-portable See-Thru-Eye capable of penetrating a host of barriers of different thicknesses and constructi ...
