  1. Ultrafast Gas Curtain and Wire-Reinforced X-Ray Window Debris Shields

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) proposes to develop two components of a three-component, survivable debris shield for large area test exposures to cold (1-5keV) x-rays. These elements also have commercial potential in accelerators and in radiography. The elements are: an ultrafast gas curtain designed to be located close to the x-ray source to deflect plasma debris as well as ~um siz ...

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

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corp proposes to develop a fast pulse, portable, fast neutron source to detect SNM in the field. Our source offers a 20ns neutron pulse with a repetition rate up to 1kHz. The goal is to develop a source with 1000hrs of continuous operation at 1E8 n/s. The Ph I program will demonstrate the critical features of the source including pulse width, reproducibility and neutron yi ...

  3. Safe-Cracker Distributed Network Code Breaking Project

    SBC: AccessData Corporation            Topic: HSB071006

    Increasing complexity of encryption used by criminals presents an ongoing challenge to law enforcement agencies. Effective code breaking attack methods have been developed for attacking many of the cryptosystems used by criminals, however, frequently attacking these files requires mammoth amounts of CPU power achieved only through the coordinated effort of hundreds or thousands of computers. Acces ...

  4. Development of a 3/6/9 MeV X-ray Generator

    SBC: Accuray Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    Accuray bases this proposal on an X-ray generator, model DX500K, designed, built, and delivered to a major contractor in December 2008 as part of the DNDO-CAARS program. Accuray`s DX500K operates at single or dual energy modes of 6 MeV and 9 MeV and interleaves between 6 MeV and 9 MeV at 400 Hz. The pulse to pulse jitter is negligible -- a major performance factor in high Z detection. The system o ...

  5. Smart Joint system for in-situ monitoring of buildings

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: HS052005

    Acellent Technologies proposes to develop a smart joint structural health monitoring (SHM) sensor network that can autonomously assess in real time the structural stability of structures such as buildings. The sensor network will use a combination of large and small piezoelectric actuators and sensors to characterize damage in, and monitor the rigidity of components of the building primary structu ...

  6. 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 RF-excited plasma neutron generator will be pulsed to produce the activating neutrons whose pulse length is 100 microseconds with a fall time of less than 1 microsecond. High pulse repetition rates and high peak neutron yields can be otained depending upon the RF generator used. Using the T-T ...

  7. Interactive Neuro-Educational Technolgies (I-INET): Enhanced Training of Threat Detection

    SBC: ADVANCED BRAIN MONITORING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    According to Department of Homeland Security (DHS), over 700 million pieces of baggage are screened for potential threats in the U.S. every year. Training methods for DHS screeners rely on conventional classroom instruction and on-the-job mentoring. By definition, a screener's work is challenging because the search for threats demands sustained, focused attention while reviewing many images with v ...

  8. Radiological Source Surveillance With V-RADS Video-Centric Radiatiion Detection

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Radiological sources are in everyday use in numerous industries. Illicit removal of this material from storage could result in construction of a Radiological Dispersal Device or Dirty Bomb. A pervasive means of securing radiological materials and identifying breaches in security is required. Ideally, existing passive surveillance technology would be used, thereby enabling rapid and cost effective ...

  9. Non-Contact Sampling Wand For The Detection Of Trace Explosives Material

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Aerodyne Research, Inc. proposes to design, build and test a non-contact sampling wand intended for the detection of energetic materials which will involve collection and subsequent concentration of particles, and real-time coupling to a hand-held ion mobility spectrometer-based detector. This non-contact sampler will be easily retrofitted to commercially available detectors and require minimal el ...

  10. Aerosol Collection into Small Liquid Volumes for Biological Assays

    SBC: Aerosol Dynamics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    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. T ...
