  1. GaP Avalanche Photodiodes for Radiation Detection

    SBC: Aymont Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In this Phase I DHS STTR proposal submitted in response to Topic H-SB06.2-007, Aymont Technology, Inc. and University of Virginia will develop gallium phosphide (GaP) avalanche photodiodes (APD) with high quantum efficiency (QE>50% at 360 nm in Phase I), high gain (>100000), and high speed (2 GHz bandwidth). This Phase I effort will build upon previous work in the Campbell group that demonstrated ...

  4. Robust Autonomous Power Generation for UGS Employing High Efficiency Thermoelectrics

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

    One of the greatest challenges facing UGS networks is the availability of power to run critical processes. Most current technologies employ off-the-shelf batteries which require replacement every 6mnths or so. Battery replacement in a UGS deployment for border security is not only costly, but in some terrains nearly impossible. Ideally, UGS field components would harness power from the environment ...

  5. Secure Inter-organizational Network Boundary Assurance Device (SINBAD)

    SBC: Dolphin Technology, Inc.            Topic: HSB061007

    This effort proposes to analyze and develop a design for the Secure Inter-organizational Network Boundary Assurance Device (SINBAD). SINBAD will leverage capabilities and leverage lessons from guard technology to yield an enhanced boundary control and inspection capability suitable for Homeland Security organizations exchanging inter-organizational email with attachments. It will 1) prevent improp ...

  6. Achieving Near Real Time Image Data for Emergency Management

    SBC: Pictometry International            Topic: N/A

    Achieving Near Real Time Image Data for Emergency Management The contractor team shall develop a proposed structure for a near real time/real time data tasking, capture, and dissemination system. The team has developed COTS components that are viable for the DHS requirements. Pictometry and ITT have individually supported thousands of missions and have collected terabytes of data used successfully ...

  7. Development of a Non-Nuclear Soil Density Gauge to Eliminate the Need for Nuclear Density Gauges

    SBC: TransTech Systems, Incorporated            Topic: HSB061010

    Congress and various government agencies have recognized the problem of orphaned radioactive sources worldwide. This SBIR seeks replacement for existing operating nuclear sources of radiation in non-medical applications such as the portable nuclear density gauge (NDG), which poses two very critical national issues. First, there are an estimated 25,000 NDG units in the United States that contain ra ...

  9. Maritime Surveillance Sensing Using Underwater High Frequency Acoustic Communication Receivers

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM06013

    High-frequency acoustic modems are required to provide undersea communication networks to support covert surveillance operations. These modems can also be used as platforms for compact, low power surveillance sensors and processing. A natural first step would be to integrate a capability for passive acoustic detection of ships and submarines. A multi-phase effort is proposed for integrating passiv ...

  10. HIGH EFFICIENCY COMPACT MODELING OF RADIATION EFFECTS

    SBC: Lynguent, Inc.            Topic: DTRA05001

    The objective of this research is to develop beta versions of tools for automatically migrating radiation effects predicted in TCAD level tools to compact modeling tools. This transition will enable compact models that possess radiation effects to be quickly generated, which can then be used in circuit design activity. This approach is a substantial improvement over the current ad hoc approaches. ...
