  1. BIOSwimmer: In-Liquid Inspection System

    SBC: Boston Engineering Corporation            Topic: HSB091007

    This project addresses a critical need in the nation`s infrastructure and border protection, inspection inside tanks on large ships in port. These missions must be performed in a timely, effective, and safe manner in challenging environments. The BIOSwimmer system is an end-to-end solution that includes sensing, post processing, control, and a biomimetic autonomous swimming vehicle that provides e ...

  2. Customized STR Typing System for Kinship Analysis

    SBC: NetBio, Inc.            Topic: HSB091001

    First described in the early 1990`s, short tandem repeat (STR) analysis is the gold standard of human identification. With a false identification rate as low as one in hundreds of trillions, STR analysis is a powerful tool for determining human identification objectively. The goal of this work is to improve the ability to evaluate kinship based on STR analyses. By creating an STR assay system tha ...

  3. RELIABLE PEROXIDE-BASED EXPLOSIVES DETECTION WITH LOW FALSE ALARM RATE

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: HSB061002

    We propose to supply an improved version of our recently demonstrated trace explosive detection technology. This technology is comprised of a surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) sampling chip, a highly efficient air collection design, and a low cost Raman signal detection technique for trace peroxide-based explosive detection. This novel approach overcomes intrinsic limitations of current de ...

  4. Improved Vapor Compression Personal Cooling

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: HSB042006

    Aspen Systems proposes to develop a unique state of the art miniature vapor compression cooling system for use by emergency first responders. The program is structured to include investigation and research into realistic user needs as part of the product definition activities. Aspen has established relationships with representatives from the various user groups within the first responder communi ...

  5. Precision Information Environment for Collaborative Emergency Support (PIECES)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: HSB0101003

    Decision makers responding to homeland security incidents must rapidly integrate and manage dynamic, time-sensitive information from many heterogeneous and multimodal information sources. Responders access this information through numerous software applications, all while attempting to collaborate in real-time. Based on the results of our Phase I design effort, we propose to develop and evaluate a ...

  6. Hardware-based Computer Security System

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: HSB052004

    Rootkits are programs that hide pieces of software from the operating system. Rootkits replace or modify intrusion and system status applications, falsely reporting a clean system, when in fact the system has been compromised. A recent McAfee article stated rootkit infections for Windows-based PCs were up 700% for first quarter 2006, and this trend is expected to continue. A compromised system ca ...

  7. TRACE DETECTION WAND- SAMPLING AND DETECTING EXPLOSIVES CLOSER TO THE SOURCE

    SBC: EXCELLIMS CORPORATION            Topic: HSB061003

    Recently, trace detection and imaging portal systems have begun to be deployed into airport check points and other high threat facilities, to meet the need for detecting explosives on people. In this project, we propose a sample collection method that is similar to the one used in trace portal systems; however, instead of using large scale air handling systems to release, collect, and transport sa ...

  8. Microsensor for the Detection of Humans in Cargo Shipping Containers

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: HSB061005

    Project Summary: This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project is aimed at developing a wireless microsensor for the detection of humans in cargo shipping containers. During Phase I, feasibility of the proposed microsensor was successfully demonstrated. In Phase II we will conduct detailed studies to refine the performance of the microsensor. The microsensor will be configured fo ...

  9. Terahertz Imaging System for Concealed Weapon Detection

    SBC: Spire Corporation            Topic: HSB042005

    This Phase II Small Business Innovation Research project is aimed at designing, assembling, and demonstrating an entirely new imaging system capable of detecting hidden weapons at standoff distances. Phase I of this program successfully identified critical terahertz atmospheric transmission windows with high precision, defined the best candidate imaging system, and carried out an analysis of this ...

  10. Real-Time System for Stand-Off Measurement of Structural Stability

    SBC: Summit Safety, Inc            Topic: HSB052005

    This project will utilize a non-contact ultrasonic sensing system previously developed by Summit Safety, and convert it from an engineering tool to a user-friendly system capable of providing real-time measurement of structural stability and advanced warning of pending collapse. The sensor provides high resolution measurements of position, velocity, and acceleration from standoff distances upt to ...
