  1. Mobile 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 that does not impede the flow of commerce 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 prompt neut ...

  2. Tamper-proof Electronic Bolt-Seal

    SBC: EVIGIA SYSTEMS INC            Topic: HSB0151002

    The proposed SBIR Phase I effort initiates the development of a low-cost tamper-proof electronic bolt seal that is easy to install, and provides electronic recording and reporting without increasing the inspection time at the customs and security checkpoints. The proposed e-seal addresses the present gap in seal protecting ALL the air and maritime containers and conveyances to extend protection b ...

  3. Downed Power Line Sensor

    SBC: SKY SIGHT TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: HSB0142005

    The proposed SkySight Technologies Downed Power Line Sensor will detect and alert to 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. A concurrent visual onsite indicator flashes to alert first responders an ...

  4. A Verifier for Multicore C11 or C++11 Code

    SBC: The Formula Factory            Topic: 9030177R

    Galois will build a practical, efficient, modular, deductive code verifier and verification methodology for multithread C11 software. The verifier will take code written to the C11 standard, suitably annotated with function contracts, assertions, program/data invariants, ghost data/code, and any platform-specific assumptions beyond those guaranteed by the standard, and will prove that the code mee ...

  5. A Stereo Camera System for Measuring Coastal Currents

    SBC: 3SRM INC.            Topic: 844WP

    Inexperienced swimmers are often unaware of the presence of treacherous rip currents and this leads to many drowning deaths each year. Even when signs are posted, the public probably does not clearly understand the danger. It would be more informative if the public were ale to maps of the location, speed, and direction of coastal currents. Ocean safety officials are using various methods to inform ...

  6. Inversion Engine: A Custom Hardware/Software/Algorithmic Solution for Fast MBIR Imaging

    SBC: High Performance Imaging LLC            Topic: HSB0142003

    Model-based image reconstruction (MBIR) has been demonstrated to have great potential value in a variety of DHS applications including baggage and cargo CT scanning. However, while MBIR has the potential to reduce artifacts and increase resolution, the computational requirements remain a barrier to its application. High Performance Imaging LLC seeks to create and commercialize the InversionEngin ...

  7. A Multimedia Surveillance Networking System using Foveation Technology

    SBC: High Assurance Systems, In.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed foveation-based video and infra-red broad-spectrum streaming technology will provide a novel all-time all-weather surveillance capability. This highly scalable technology will allow low cost object tracking and searching capabilities in compressed domain. The technology will be deployable over IP and wireless networks allowing wide coverage based on broad spectrum sensors.

  8. Rotary-Wing UAV as On-Demand Sensor Platform for Aircraft Operators

    SBC: Lite Machines Corporation            Topic: SOCOM05011

    During warfare, strikes made with surgical precision by Special Operations Forces reduce collateral damage and loss of life among non-combatants and have become the expectation of our war-fighters. Such strikes, however, require the ability to survey the target area in a timely fashion and guide munitions accurately. High altitude photographs taken by satellites and orbiting aircraft often lack ...

  9. Vertical Wind Profile Data Collection Using Laser Technology on Unmanned Delivery Platforms.

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM04007

    The current project will develop and demonstrate a prototype compact, power-efficient all-fiber lidar unit for wind profiling on board UAV's and other aircraft. The system leverages Oceanit's current fiber-laser based lidar development efforts. A unique design provides a rugged system with no moving parts and little maintenance requirements. Efforts in the current project will include prototype s ...

  10. High Speed Non Ionizing Terahertz Measurement System to Replace Nuclear Gages

    SBC: TeraMetrix, LLC            Topic: N/A

    We propose to prove the feasibility of a high speed non ionizing time domain terahertz (THz) measurement system to replace nuclear gauges. Nuclear source gauges (such as beta and gamma) are used in industrial process monitoring and control, often to measure thickness or mass in paper, plastics, rubber, and food stuffs in manufacturing and packaging. A single system based on low power non-ionizing ...
