  2. Less-Lethal Eye Safe Handheld LED-Based Incapacitator for Law Enforcement

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: HSB051005

    Intelligent Optical Systems (IOS) has developed and demonstrated a prototype dazzler that utilizes an array of super-bright Light Emitting Diode (LED) clusters to produce disorientation and strong flashblindness with afterimages. In this project, IOS proposes to develop a significantly improved device that can operate at distances up to 50 feet at the maximum permissible eye-safe level. Two new in ...

  4. High Quantum Efficiency Fast Detectors for the Readout of Scintillators for Gamma Ray Detection

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: HSB062007

    Agiltron proposes to demonstrate a breakthrough detector for readout of scintillators for gamma ray detection that overcomes the quantum efficiency and high voltage limits of current PMTs and APDs. It holds the promise to improve the current scintillator detector resolution by at least 30 percent without the need for a high voltage power supply, and can be fabricated at a low cost. This new photom ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Metal-Insulator-Semiconductor Gallium Nitride Detector

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: HSB062007

    In response to the HSARPA need for the development of high quantum efficiency, fast photon counting detectors to read UV/visible light emitted by scintillators under gamma radiation, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Metal-Insulator-Semiconductor Gallium Nitride (MISGaN) detector that will have high sensitivity in the UV region for use with cerium-doped crystal scintillat ...

  7. High Speed Non Ionizing Terahertz Measurement System to Replace Nuclear Gages

    SBC: TeraMetrix, LLC            Topic: N/A

    We propose to prove the feasibility of a high speed non ionizing time domain terahertz (THz) measurement system to replace nuclear gauges. Nuclear source gauges (such as beta and gamma) are used in industrial process monitoring and control, often to measure thickness or mass in paper, plastics, rubber, and food stuffs in manufacturing and packaging. A single system based on low power non-ionizing ...

  8. Dielectric Relaxation Analyzing Gauge

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: N/A

    To reduce the amount of radioactive material in common use for commercial applications and thus improve public security, the DNDO is seeking replacements for devices that commonly incorporate such material. Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Dielectric Relaxation Analyzing Gauge (DRAG) that will replace isotope-based gauges for thickness, level, and velocity measurements i ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
