  1. 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 ...

  2. Signal Processing for a Southern Border Surveillance System

    SBC: AETC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The U.S. Border Patrol is in critical need of improved surveillance for detection of people and vehicles illegally crossing the Southern Border, particularly in rural areas. AETC will conduct a Phase 1 feasibility study of acoustics-based surveillance and signal processing techniques to address the Southern Border problem. The overall system concept encompasses a network of low-cost acoustic senso ...

  3. High Quantum Efficiency, Fast Detectors for the Readout of Scintillators for Gamma-Ray Detection

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Gamma-ray spectrometers consisting of inorganic scintillators coupled to optical detectors such as photomultiplier tubes (PMTs) are an important element of the systems that are used to monitor and prevent the spread of special nuclear materials. Two very important requirements for the scintillation detectors used as gamma-ray spectrometers in homeland security monitoring include high sensitivity a ...

  4. LIBS: An Alternative to Commercial Instruments for Measurement of Lead

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Radioactive materials are used in commercially important analytical instruments because of the ability of ionizing radiation to excite characteristic x-ray fluorescence lines. Radiation sources are often the most practical method for portable instruments, such as analyzers for lead paint in homes. There are many other applications, including the rapidly growing area of RoHS manufacturing. This eff ...

  5. Network-centric Inter-channel Fusion for Multi-media Surveillance

    SBC: Broadata Communications, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Department of Homeland Security is seeking innovative highly-scalable information processing technologies to manage multimedia surveillance information networks. To address this need, Broadata Communications Inc. (BCI) proposes a highly innovative Network-centric Inter-channel Fusion (NIF) system solution. The NIF system is leveraged on a unique network-centric signal processing technique to a ...

  6. Developing Incident Scenarios Automatically for Simulation-based Training for Emergency Responders (DISASTER)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Given recent man-made and naturally occurring catastrophic events such as the terrorist attacks on 9/11 and the effect of Hurricane Katrina, it is apparent that an emergency responder¿s ability to successfully manage and mitigate critical incidents is becoming of increasing importance. Training through live exercises is burdened by limits on availability as well as high costs in financial and per ...

  7. Instantaneous Remote Sensing Data Receiving and Processing for Emergency Response

    SBC: EarthData International, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    EarthData proposes an innovative approach to providing real-time surveillance imagery and greatly improving response times for tasking multiple remote sensing aircraft to acquire critical map-based products required for crisis support. A mobile ground based acquisition planner inputs the acquisition needs into a GIS system preloaded with basic (pre disaster) information of the response area. Using ...

  8. Trace Detection Wand ¿Sampling and Detecting Explosives Closer to the Source

    SBC: EXCELLIMS CORPORATION            Topic: HSB061003

    As the trace detection portal systems being deployed into the airport check points, detecting explosives from airline passengers has become possible. In this proposal, we use a sample collection method that is similar to the one used in the portal systems; however, instead of using large scale air handling system to release, collection, and transport samples to the detector, we decided to bring th ...

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

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: HSB061005

    Technical Abstract: GINER, Inc. proposes to design, develop and demonstrate a low-power consuming, screen-printed, thick-film electrochemical, carbon dioxide (CO2) and oxygen (O2) microsensor module that combines simultaneous real time detection of CO2 and O2 in one substrate and demonstrate its successful operation for the detection of humans hiding in cargo shipping containers. The microsensor m ...

  10. Enterprise Botnet Detection System

    SBC: HBGary, Inc.            Topic: HSB061008

    A botnet is a network of robots or ¿bots¿ installed surreptitiously on computer hosts and controller to do the attacker¿s bidding via remote command and control systems. Most bots employ stealth methods to hide communications and bot installation. Detecting a botnet by examining network traffic is extremely difficult since botnets frequently mask their existence by using multiple host proxies a ...
