  2. Development and Prototyping of a Digital Pulse Processor for Improved Coincidence Detection, Rejection, and Pulse Recovery, for High Count-Rate Silicon Drift Detectors

    SBC: 4pi Analysis, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The recent emergence of the Silicon Drift detector (SDD), for use in energy dispersive x-ray spectrometry (EDS), has made possible x-ray event streams with count rates as high as 1-10 Mcps. A problem with existing digital signal processing, as applied to SDDs, is the significant presence of coincidence peaks above the x-ray background. These coincidence peaks occur with amplitudes comparable to lo ...

  3. Assess Ability to use Eye Tracking and Pupil Dialtion to Determine Intent to Deceive- Phase II

    SBC: Bio-Behavior Analysis Systems, LLC            Topic: HSB081001

    We propose to run 3 experiments to refine and utilize measures of oculomotor activity and pupil diameter change to assess an individual's malicious or deceptive intent. We also propose to concurrently develop the software and determine the hardware necessary for online, real-time assessment of malintent based on prior research results and the results of the proposed experiments. In addition to ocu ...

  6. Intelligible Speech Communications with Robust Voice Operated Switch (VOX) Operation for High Noise Environments

    SBC: Broad Audio LLC            Topic: HSB092006

    First responders operate in challenging acoustic environments where noise, alarms, engines, radio communications, and communications to others in the environment make voice communications with hands-free, voice operated switch (VOX) operation difficult. Broad Digital will use a combination of passive acoustic design, noise suppression and subtraction, signal separation, and equalization to provide ...

  7. Web-Based Computer Simulation of Radiological Detection Scenario Training (RDST)

    SBC: Crisis Simulations International, LLC            Topic: N/A

    With the range and variety of radiation detectors that exist and the continuing threat of a radiological disaster in the future, the need for training of first responders and personnel in the front lines of interdiction is extraordinary and daunting. It is daunting because of the number of people across the nation that must be trained initially and who must continually maintain their training to b ...

  10. High Efficiency, Large-area, 1550 nm InGaAs Photodiodes

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A stable, well characterized InGaAs materials growth and photodetector fabrication process will be used to fabricate matched photodiodes optimized for balanced homodyne detection. The 1-mm-diameter p-i-n photodetectors will be manufactured back-illuminated with a 5-micron absorber, allowing residual light to reflect off the front-side metal to make a double pass through the active layer. Ultra-hig ...
