  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. GaP Avalanche Photodiodes for Radiation Detection

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

    In this Phase I DHS STTR proposal submitted in response to Topic H-SB06.2-007, Aymont Technology, Inc. and University of Virginia will develop gallium phosphide (GaP) avalanche photodiodes (APD) with high quantum efficiency (QE>50% at 360 nm in Phase I), high gain (>100000), and high speed (2 GHz bandwidth). This Phase I effort will build upon previous work in the Campbell group that demonstrated ...

  4. Emergency Responder Tracking and Situation Awareness in a 4D Visualization Environment

    SBC: BALFOUR TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: N/A

    To address the needs of emergency responders and incident commanders, a 4-D Emergency Response Tracking System (ERTS) is being developed to provide dynamic situational awareness in locating first responders and assets within building structures in urban environments. The proof-of-concept presentation will demonstrate how 3-D intelligent, interactive visual models of building infrastructure can be ...

  5. Automated Situation Awareness using a 4D Visualization Environment

    SBC: BALFOUR TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: HSB061009

    To address the significant challenges being created by the rapidly expanding deployment of multi-spectrum sensors in large distributed surveillance operations, the feasibility, architecture design and interface standards are being investigated for a 4D Landscape Automated Situation Awareness(ASA) System. The proof-of-concept presentation will demonstrate how such a system can effectively manage la ...

  6. Robust Autonomous Power Generation for UGS Employing High Efficiency Thermoelectrics

    SBC: Biophan Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    One of the greatest challenges facing UGS networks is the availability of power to run critical processes. Most current technologies employ off-the-shelf batteries which require replacement every 6mnths or so. Battery replacement in a UGS deployment for border security is not only costly, but in some terrains nearly impossible. Ideally, UGS field components would harness power from the environment ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Secure Inter-organizational Network Boundary Assurance Device (SINBAD)

    SBC: Dolphin Technology, Inc.            Topic: HSB061007

    This effort proposes to analyze and develop a design for the Secure Inter-organizational Network Boundary Assurance Device (SINBAD). SINBAD will leverage capabilities and leverage lessons from guard technology to yield an enhanced boundary control and inspection capability suitable for Homeland Security organizations exchanging inter-organizational email with attachments. It will 1) prevent improp ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Incident Surveillance Management System (ISMS)

    SBC: Geospatial Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Geospatial Systems and Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) have teamed with Leica Geosystems to develop an Incident Surveillance Management System (ISMS) that can ingest data from remote sensing systems, reduce that data, and deliver information products to decision makers in near real time. The information products are consistent with accepted practice within the NIMS community and utilize st ...
