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

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corp proposes to develop a fast pulse, portable, fast neutron source to detect SNM in the field. Our source offers a 20ns neutron pulse with a repetition rate up to 1kHz. The goal is to develop a source with 1000hrs of continuous operation at 1E8 n/s. The Ph I program will demonstrate the critical features of the source including pulse width, reproducibility and neutron yi ...

  2. High-Yield Pulsed Neutron Generator

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

    A pulsed neutron generator is proposed for the detection of special nuclear material. A recently developed RF-excited plasma neutron generator will be pulsed to produce the activating neutrons whose pulse length is 100 microseconds with a fall time of less than 1 microsecond. High pulse repetition rates and high peak neutron yields can be otained depending upon the RF generator used. Using the T-T ...

  3. Aerosol Collection into Small Liquid Volumes for Biological Assays

    SBC: Aerosol Dynamics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Detection systems for aeropathogens require the concentration of airborne particles from large volumes of air into small volumes of liquid. This proposal addresses this need through droplet encapsulation of airborne particles, with subsequent capture into a microliter-sized collection reservoir. Droplet encapsulation is accomplished through our company¿s proven, patented growth tube technology. T ...

  4. Signal Processing for a Southern Border Surveillance System

    SBC: AETC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The U.S. Border Patrol is in critical need of improved surveillance for detection of people and vehicles illegally crossing the Southern Border, particularly in rural areas. AETC will conduct a Phase 1 feasibility study of acoustics-based surveillance and signal processing techniques to address the Southern Border problem. The overall system concept encompasses a network of low-cost acoustic senso ...

  5. Framework for Biometric Identification on the Move

    SBC: AFIS and Biometrics Consulting Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a methodology and test and evaluation framework for optimizing the remote capture of multimodal biometrics for automated screening and identification to the practical extent possible while the individuals are on the move, walking through an automated gate or corridor at the airport or a walkway across the border. In Phase one we will establish a set of multimodal biometrics ...

  6. CZT Surveillance Camera

    SBC: Aguila Technologies, Inc.            Topic: HSB071008

    The improved surveillance of radioactive sources used in hospitals, research centers, food irradiations plants and other fully legal and sanctioned industries is paramount to interrupt the terrorism value chain. This value chain relies on stealing radioactive sources from the legitimate before mentioned institutions to build radiological dispersal devices (RRD). Nowadays, radioactive sources are s ...

  7. Network-centric Inter-channel Fusion for Multi-media Surveillance

    SBC: Broadata Communications, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Department of Homeland Security is seeking innovative highly-scalable information processing technologies to manage multimedia surveillance information networks. To address this need, Broadata Communications Inc. (BCI) proposes a highly innovative Network-centric Inter-channel Fusion (NIF) system solution. The NIF system is leveraged on a unique network-centric signal processing technique to a ...

  8. Carbon Nanotube Materials for Improved Chemiresistors

    SBC: Carbon Solutions, Inc            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a novel class of sensor materials based on chemically functionalized single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs). The proposed materials will be utilized in chemiresistor microarrays for improved detection of small molecule gases with reduced signal drift and extended lifetime. In addition, through chemical functionalization of the SWNTs their sensor properties can be tailored for ...

  9. Channel to Droplet Sample Extraction Analysis (SEA) Cartridge for Food Testing and Homeland Security Applications

    SBC: Core MicroSolutions, Inc.            Topic: HSB051001

    To develop advanced ¿channel-to-droplet¿ sample extraction and purification functions on a compact cartridge that is free of sensitive and complex microfluidic components, Core Microsolutions (CMSS) and Professor Sung Cho of the University of Pittsburgh propose to integrate Electrowetting-on-Dielectric (EWOD) droplet handling and in-droplet concentration capabilities with well proven channel-bas ...

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

    SBC: PTSE, Inc.            Topic: HSB072007

    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 ...
