  1. Low-cost and Rapid DNA Sequence for Biometric Applications

    SBC: ADVANCED LIQUID LOGIC            Topic: HSB091001

    Advanced Liquid Logic proposes to develop a low-cost and rapid biometric system based on DNA. Using a miniaturized DNA sequencing format the device will enable DNA-based identification of individuals as well as determination of family relationships (kinship) between individuals. The system will be implemented using Advanced Liquid Logic`s proprietary Digital Microfluidics technology, which is base ...

  2. 3WEAVE Fabric/Composite Panels for Blast Protection

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: HSB082001

    Based on the results of the Phase I project, it was shown that 3TEX`s unitary 3D woven E-Glass billet reinforced composite panels have excellent potential to be used as blast mitigating material for protecting buildings. Fibers and resins used in the Phase I were selected with affordability and fire resistance as the major considerations. In the Phase II effort proposed, the same fiber and resin w ...

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

    SBC: Crisis Simulations International, LLC            Topic: 0912

    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 ...

  4. Wearable Thermoelectric Generators for First Responders

    SBC: Perpetua Power Source Technologies, Inc.            Topic: HSB092008

    The human body is a near perfect energy generator. Demand for energy harvesting innovation, along with technology advances in thin film thermoelectric generators and highly efficient DC/DC boost circuitry now place wearable thermoelectric power harvesting within reach. The objective of Perpetua`s Phase II proposal is to deliver an energy harvesting system for first responder applications powered b ...

  5. High Efficiency, Large-Area, 1550 nm InGaAs Photodiodes

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A back-illuminated planar InGaAs photodiode tested to have 95% quantum effiiency (QE) at 1550 nm, area greater than 1 mm2, low capacitance (125 MHz) will be improved. Although the existing Phase I device exhibited bulk material dark current generation better than commercially available devices, the sidewall-generated dark current was found to dominate the noise equiva ...

  6. Low-cost and Rapid DNA Sequence for Biometric Applications

    SBC: ADVANCED LIQUID LOGIC            Topic: N/A

    A DNA sequencer for biometric applications will be developed. The system will enable rapid and low-cost identification of individuals and kinship verification using a self-contained and portable device. All process steps from DNA extraction to DNA sequencing will be automatically performed within the disposable single-use cartridge. This high-level of functional integration is made possible by Adv ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...
