  1. Dual Sensor Module for Human Detection

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: HSB061005

    There is an urgent need detect humans hiding in shipping containers. ANI proposes an innovative chemical sensor that is miniaturized, robust, low power, low power, maintanence free, rapid responsive chemical sensor that reliably detects human(s) hiding in cargo shipping containers. ANI`s multi-sensor module is well capable of handling challenging environmental conditions in the container with mini ...

  2. Chem/Bio Sensor Network Design Tool (SNDT)

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Concerns over chemical and biological weapons motivate interest in ¿smart¿ building technologies that incorporate a network of sensors for Chemical and Biological (CB) threat agents. Applied Nanotech, Inc. (ANI) proposes to collaborate with Lagus Applied Technology, Inc. (LAT) to develop and demonstrate a Sensor Network Design Tool (SNDT) for the optimal, rapid and verifiable deployment of CB se ...

  3. CNT-Based Gas Ionizer to Replace Radioactive Sources

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: HSB061010

    In the recent past, government agencies from the US and other foreign countries have recognized the problem of orphaned radioactive sources worldwide. Such sources pose a security risk in the form of potential material for a ¿dirty bomb¿ or other illicit applications. We propose to replace Ni-63 beta emitters with a carbon nanotube based electric field ionization source. This CNT-based ionizatio ...

  4. CNT-Based D2 Ion Source for Improved Neutron and Photon Generator

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: HSB072007

    The Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO) requires non-intrusive radiation detection equipment to identify special nuclear materials (SNM). Preferred neutron sources for the detection of SNM should have narrow pulse width, low source neutron energy, high yield and be based on non-radioactive materials. Applied Nanotech, Inc. (ANI) proposes to develop a novel field ionization technology to produ ...

  5. CNT-Based Gas Ionizer to Replace Radioactive Sources

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: HSB061010

    The aim of this SBIR program is to develop a CNT based gas ionization source to replace radioactive 63Ni beta emitter sources used in ion detection instruments, cost effectively and without performance offsets. In Phase I, ANI worked with development partner Sionex, Inc. to establish proof of concept for basic functionality of the CNT ion source technology, demonstrating an ionic current at atmosp ...

  6. A Non-Lethal, Non-Tethered, Inexpensive Electro-Muscular Disruption Projectile

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: HSB051005

    Recent trends in law enforcement clearly illustrate the effectiveness of the taser to debilitate even the toughest targets, without causing permanent injury or lingering aftereffects. Current electric stun technology is either hand-held or short-range and tethered to the launch platform. The law enforcement agencies would greatly benefit from a longer range (6 to 40 meters), non-tethered electric ...

  7. BioAdvise- A Rapid and Fully Automated Biothreat Evaluation Module

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: HSB062002

    With the increasing number of biological agents that are likely to be used in terrorists¿ attacks, there is a significant need for an easy-to-use and practical biothreat detection system for homeland security. Lynntech`s fully automated BioAdvise biothreat evaluation module utilizes well-established sample preparation technology and an innovative, rapid, and multiplexed real-time PCR technology i ...

  8. Highly Efficient Portable Trace Explosives Sampling System

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The transportation system is an attractive target for terrorists because it could allow them to cause immediate harm to large numbers of people and create anxiety for many more. The detection and mitigation of attacks on transportation are made more difficult by the transient nature of the passengers and the fact that passengers often carry a lot of luggage. X-ray machines and computer tomography- ...

  9. Wide-Area Infrared Imager (WAIRI) for Increasing Human Detection Probability

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Koopman search theory is built on the concept of sweep width to determine the probability of detection (POD) for a target in a defined area. Turret-mounted forward-looking infrared (FLIR) imagers have a high POD for targets within a narrow field of view but these devices, if used alone, severely limit effective sweep width. Lynntech proposes an infrared imager with a wide field of view which is de ...

  10. Wireless Intelligent Sensor Platform for Emergency Responders

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Oceanit proposes to develop a reliable, low-cost, easy-to-install, self-monitoring, and self-expanding wireless communication system to enable remote monitoring and tracking of sensors on emergency first responders in hostile environments. The heart of the system will use a Zigbee wireless mesh networking IC for low power and low cost communications. By using a wireless mesh network, low power wir ...
