  1. Smartphone Enabled Spectroscopic Gamma-Neutron Radiation Sensor

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: HSB0141006

    RMD is proposing the development of a Smart-phone Enabled Radionuclide Identifier (SERI), a new detection instrument designed to take full advantage of the smartphone/tablet technology. The hardware platform will include a new advanced scintillator that will provide both high gamma-ray efficiency and spectroscopic performance, in addition to providing high neutron efficiency. The unit will communi ...

  2. Canine Attached Networked Imaging System (CANIS)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: HSB0151007

    K9 units provide valuable and unique capabilities to law enforcement operations, including pursuit, search and rescue, and contraband detection. However, there is currently no standard method for tracking the location of K9 teams or transmitting video back to the command center for situational awareness and legal documentation. Several commercial off the shelf (COTS) canine-mounted camera systems ...

  3. Canine Mounted Wireless Video and Location Streaming System

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: HSB0151007

    A tracking device attached to a canine that can relay information to both the handler of the canine via a wrist or forearm mounted remote monitor and a command coordination center is very useful for the purpose of documenting the movements of the canine for court/evidence purposes, verification of area(s) that have or have not been searched by a canine during deployments, safety, and situational a ...

  4. Automating Collaborative DDoS Mitigation with SDN and BGP Enhancements

    SBC: MTI Systems, Inc.            Topic: HSB0151003

    We propose research to develop a complementary pair of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) defense mechanisms, both operating in a collaborative mode between victims and upstream providers or peer networks. For initial detection of possible DDoS attack conditions, we rely on reuse of existing work, but primarily focus on utilization of techniques that are built up on Softward-Defined Networking ( ...

  5. Disposable Electronic Bolt Seal

    SBC: HI-G-TEK INC.            Topic: HSB0151002

    Purpose of Work The proposed work will provide the government with a clear roadmap for the large-scale production of a small, low-cost, ISO-17712 compliant Disposable Electronic Bolt Seal (DEBS) which can electronically monitor and secure containers throughout the entire supply chain. The DEBS seal will detect and report open, close and tamper events to approved monitoring systems. DEBS unique ele ...

  6. DNA Profiles from Single FIngerprints

    SBC: Independent Forensics of Illinois, LLC            Topic: HSB0151001

    The goal of this project is to develop a validated, commercial quality reagent kit for the reliable collection of fingerprints (i.e., latent ridge impressions) that would subsequently be used for both comparison and DNA profiling. The kit would provide all required materials, reagents, solutions and would include a detailed protocol describing the steps to (i) identify latent ridge impressions (al ...

  7. Non-Contact Device for Latent Fingerprint Capture

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: HSB0151001

    The Department of Homeland Security is seeking to develop a method for latent print work and DNA analysis from the same sample while optimizing DNA extraction protocol for fingerprints deposited on evidentiary materials used for human identification. Current DNA extraction protocols are highly successful at capturing DNA from prints. However, print lifting methods depend on physical alteration o ...

  8. Stable Tl-based Semiconductor Modules for Radiation Detection

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: HSB0151009

    Thallium-based semiconductors are promising materials for detection of gamma rays, primarily due to their high Z, high electrical conductivity and optimum bandgap energy. This program focuses on two materials TlBr and Tl4I6Se. For TlBr, this program seeks to overcome long term stability issues related to presence of mobile ions. For Tl4I6Se, this program seeks to improve the crystalline and chem ...

  9. Compact Boron-Filled 3D Semiconductor Neutron Detector Module

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: HSB0151009

    A Neutron detection device is an indispensable tool for Homeland Security, defense, power and medical applications. The proliferation of weapons of mass destruction such as nuclear weapons is a serious threat in today's world. Low cost, low power, high performance, rugged and portable neutron detection devices are highly desirable for these applications. Yet, the cost and production volume of the ...

  10. Semiconductor Neutron Detector

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: HSB0151009

    We propose to develop a thermal neutron detection module based on LiInSe2 semiconductor material as an alternative to He-3 detectors. While recent depletion of He-3 gas is the main driving force behind development of He-3 replacements, other issues with He-3 tubes such as a pressurized vessel used and microphonic issues are also important factors in handheld and portable detectors. LiInSe2 offers ...
