  1. SeaTag: Design and Manufacture of a Family of Modular Archival Tags

    SBC: DESERT STAR SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: 813

    The SeaTagTM project proceeds in Phase II to implement and test a family of micro observation stations that go beyond the concepts of traditional electronic data logging animal tags. These will include functions such as communication between SeaTagTM devices to obtain data from many animals when one tag is recovered or transmits. Deployment methods are extended to mounting on predators to monito ...

  2. A fast pulse, portable fast neutron source for special nuclear materials detection

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: HSB072007

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corp proposes to develop a fast pulse, portable, fast neutron source to detect SNM in the field. Our source offers a less than 100ns neutron pulse with a repetition rate up to 100Hz. The goal is to develop a source with 1000hrs of continuous operation at greater than 1E8 n/s. The Phase II program will develop and validate a prototype for SNM detection. The commercial goal ...

  3. High-Yield Pulsed Neutron Generator

    SBC: Adelphi Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A pulsed neutron generator is proposed for the detection of special nuclear material. A recently developed microwave-excited plasma neutron generator will be pulsed to produce the activating neutrons whose pulse lengths vary from 100 microseconds to 2 ms with a fall time of less than 1 microseconds. We demonstrated that we can increase the peak yield as a function of either RF or microwave power, ...

  4. Intensity-Modulated Advanced X-ray Source (IMAXS)

    SBC: PTSE, Inc.            Topic: HSHQDC09C000

    We propose to build an Intensity-Modulated Advanced X-ray Source (IMAXS) for cargo inspection systems that allows such systems to achieve 1 to 2 inches greater penetration for dense cargo (steel or equivalent) while, on average, producing the same amount, or less, radiation. Alternatively, cargo inspection systems using the new design may opt to have the same penetration as with conventional sourc ...

  5. ActionBuilder: Automated Scenario/Script Builder for Simulation-Based Training Systems


    To speed up simulation-based exercise development, it is important for scenarios to be authored and executed on-the-fly in an automated fashion with minimal reliance on software personnel. To this end, what is needed is an intelligent scenario/script building capability that enables training personnel to rapidly assemble and test-drive incident scenarios, and that can be smoothly integrated with s ...

  6. Fast, Easy, Reliable First Responder Bioterrorism Detection System

    SBC: Investigen, Inc.            Topic: HSB052001

    The proposed research is to develop the prototype of a handheld first responder bioterrorism agent (BA) detection system that is threat level responsive, simple, stable and rapid for analyzing suspicious powders or aerosols for the presence of nucleic acid (NA) from BAs. Investigen¿s ¿smartDNA¿ system uses peptide nucleic acid probedye cocktails to promote a rapid color change when hybridized t ...

  7. Stabilized Chemisorptive Microsensor Arrays for Small Molecule Gas Detection

    SBC: Next Dimension Technologies, Inc.            Topic: HSB071007

    The release of hazardous chemical vapors has the potential for severe casualties, and the detection of such chemicals is therefore critically important for homeland security. Despite this threat, there exists no commercially available, portable gas detection product that can quickly and cost-effectively sense most hazardous gases. In this Phase II project, we will develop a prototype gas detecti ...

  8. Production of New Durable, Transparent Conductive Coatings


    Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) is currently used as a transparent electrically conductive coating on aircraft canopies to provide electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding for electronic components. The problem with ITO is that it is relatively soft and scratches easily, requiring frequent replacement of the windscreen, leading to high maintenance costs and aircraft downtime. In addition, ITO is applie ...

  9. Non-Invasive Model Attitude and Deformation Measurement

    SBC: ACUITY TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF06298

    A system for high-resolution, real-time (40Hz), non-invasive wind tunnel attitude and deformation measurement is proposed. The system combines projection of structured laser light with photography of the illuminated surface. Photogrammetric techniques are used to obtain the three dimensional shape of the surface. Whereas most structured light systems employ a repeating pattern of lines, the prop ...

  10. Development of Flow-Field Seeding for Large Wind Tunnels

    SBC: Advanced Projects Research, Incorporated            Topic: AF06297

    The Air Force seeks a large production wind tunnel seeding system with full field steering capability. Additionally, the system must offer control of the particle size and density along with minimal maintenance and flow disturbance characteristics. These features will increase tunnel productivity, and compliment nonintrusive flow visualization techniques, such as Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) ...
