  1. Smart Joint System for In-situ Monitoring of Buildings

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: HSB052005

    Acellent proposes to develop a smart joint structural health monitoring (SHM) sensor network that can autonomously assess in real time the structural stability of buildings. The sensor network will use piezoelectric transducers and temperature sensors to characterize damage in, and monitor the rigidity of components of the building primary structure. Acellent's existing sensor network technology w ...

  2. Aerosol Collection into Low Analysis Volumes

    SBC: Aerosol Dynamics Inc.            Topic: HSB061001

    Detection systems for aeropathogens require the concentration of airborne particles from large volumes of air into small volumes of liquid. This proposal addresses this need through droplet encapsulation of airborne particles, with subsequent capture into a microliter-sized collection reservoir. Droplet encapsulation is accomplished through our company's proven, patented growth tube technology w ...

  3. A Directional Gamma Auto Spectrometer

    SBC: Aguila Technologies, Inc.            Topic: HSB052006

    THIS IS A FAST TRACK PROPOSAL WITH SIGNIFICANT MATCHING FUNDS COMMITMENTS. The Government is deploying a growing number of radiation detectors at U.S. borders, ports of entry and other key locations, intended to assist in the detection of a potential terrorist`s nuclear explosive device or radiological dispersal device. The most widely deployed radiation detector products today are radiation "pag ...

  4. BioPhalanx, a hand portable discrete monolithic microarray biothreat detector

    SBC: ARCXIS BIOTECHNOLOGIES            Topic: HSB052001

    The following proposal describes the planned effort of Arcxis Biotechnologies in the development of a rapid portable biosensor, we call BioPhalanxTM. During the Phase I SBIR project, we developed an alpha prototype for rapid point-of-care/point-of-incident instrument for the discrimination of biological agents. Our main overarching technical goal is to eliminate the need for PCR based detection, w ...

  5. Improved Security Information Management for SCADA Systems

    SBC: EXPERT MICROSYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: HSB041008

    Expert Microsystems will increase the scope of its cyber-security surveillance solution beyond intrusion detection systems to include other intelligence sources-firewalls, routers, server logs, and packet sniffers for performing dynamic packet filtering of the SCADA protocols themselves. We will develop a software solution that eliminates 99.9%+ of false positives generated by today's surveillanc ...

  6. Rare Variant Detection Using Next Genration Sequencing Technology

    SBC: EUREKA GENOMICS CORPORATION            Topic: HSB0101002

    The long-term objective is to develop a rare variant (SNPs) detection pipeline, based on high throughput sequencing (HTS) and advanced bioinformatics, with the goal of detecting mutations present in ratio as low as 1:1000. To achieve this goal, we propose to: (1) Develop statistical and computational approaches to evaluate the effects of sequencing platform, target genome, and mapping algorithm o ...

  7. Continuous Immunoassay for the Accurate Detection of Low Vapor Pressure TICs

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: HSB041001

    Accidental spills or intentional releases of toxic industrial compounds (TICs) are significant threats to human life. Early detection and warning of the presence and distribution of these hazardous materials in the environment is very important in the prevention of injury and loss of human life. However, the monitoring for low vapor pressure TICS (LVTICs) in the atmosphere is problematic because ...

  8. Polychromic Imaging for Standoff Detection of Explosives and Weapons

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: HSB042005

    Terahertz (THz) radiation imaging and sensing is one of the most promising technologies for the standoff detection of concealed threats. In Phase I, Intelligent Optical Systems (IOS), in collaboration with the Center for Terahertz Research at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, demonstrated the feasibility of detecting explosives underneath cloth and packaging materials via the reflection of THz ra ...
