  1. Quick Release Connector

    SBC: SKY SIGHT TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: HSB0131005

    The proposed SkySight Technologies Quick Release Connector will independently detect an unexpected mechanical load on the power distribution line. The compact and lightweight SkySight Quick Release Connector uses existing methods and hardware to integrate into the infrastructure, and no special tools or skills are required. While the connector can be latched by hand without any special tools, it c ...

  2. Low-cost Multi-spectral Infrared Sensor for Mobile Footprint Detection

    SBC: Spectrum Photonics, Inc.            Topic: HSB0141001

    Spectrum Photonics will utilize our 20 years of experience in developing and employing multi-spectral disturbed earth sensors to develop a vehicle-mounted, low-cost mobile footprint detector. To meet the specifications described in the SBIR topic, our team will develop a multi-spectral long wave infrared sensor that will exploit the restrstrahlen effect for the silicate-based soils that dominate ...

  3. Portable High-Intensity X-Ray Source Based on a 10 MeV Superconducting Electron Linac

    SBC: Niowave, Inc.            Topic: HSB0141007

    In the post 9/11 security environment, rapid cargo inspection has become a high priority. Cargo scanning using either radiographic imaging or active interrogation for Special Nuclear Material (SNM) requires high energy and high intensity x-rays. High intensity x-ray sources are especially important for active interrogation techniques such as photo-fission, delayed neutron & gamma measurements, p ...

  4. A Stereo Camera System for Measuring Coastal Currents

    SBC: 3SRM INC.            Topic: 84

    Rip currents cause multiple drowning deaths each year as swimmers are often unaware of the location and strength of coastal currents. Currently, ocean safety officials do not have an affordable and reliable commercial system which can measure coastal currents. The goal of this Phase I study is to test a stereo camera system to measure the speed, direction, and location of alongshore currents and ...

  5. Downed Power Line Sensor

    SBC: SKY SIGHT TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: HSB0142005

    The proposed SkySight Technologies Downed Power Line Sensor will detect and alert the presence of a downed power line and its energized status through a sensor on the power line. In the event of a downed power line, an alert message is sent via wireless network to the utility provider regarding the lines energized status, while a concurrent visual onsite indicator flashes to alert first responders ...

  6. Combined Extinction/Flourescence Absorption Diagnostics for Pharmaceutical Sprays

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: 9030163R

    This Phase I project will evaluate the feasibility of a pharmaceutical spray quality audit system. The spray quality audit system will estimate the mass distribution of active ingredients and droplet sizes in pharmaceutical sprays using combined fluorescence absorption and light extinction tomography. En’Urga will modify an existing instrument to simultaneously obtain full volume fluorescence ab ...

  7. Improving Commercial Fish Meal Free Aquaculture Diets

    SBC: Bell Aquaculture            Topic: 92

    Domestic US aquaculture is moving toward fishmeal replacement in aquafeeds with a variety of alternative protein sources including plant-based, terrestrial and marine proteins. In our Phase I work we showed the feasibility of modifying the protein quality of several alternate protein sources, specifically animal byproduct meals, and its potential significant impacts on marine fish production. Th ...

  8. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millemeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 94

    Passive microwave sensors aboard satellites provide valuable information regarding weather conditions by measuring atmospheric attenuation over a broad range of frequencies from 0-200 GHz. Additional ground-based sensors are desirable to provide complementary upward looking measurements that can be used to refine existing attenuation models. Operating over such a large bandwidth, however, places ...

  9. High Performance Marine Diesel Closed Coolant System for High Speed Combatant Craft

    SBC: GS ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: SOCOM14005

    USSOCOM has expressed a desire to prevent the clogging of the seawater intakes aboard the SOC-R craft by exploring a closed-loop cooling system that does not require the use of off-board raw water. The desired solution will not degrade the current SOC-R craft capabilities by creating drag or causing cavitation that would affect the performance of the Hamilton jets, thereby reducing speed, would no ...

  10. Practical Roots of Trust for Mobile Devices

    SBC: GALOIS, INC.            Topic: HSB0132002

    To meet the critical security needs of the Department of Homeland Security and others, we propose two methods for providing a secure root of trust for mobile devices. One method is designed to integrate as easily into existing systems, while the other requires deeper integration but provides correspondingly stronger security. The keys to our work are practicality and integration: practicality to e ...
