  1. Miniature, Efficient, Low-Vibration Cryocooler for Gamma Ray Detectors

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: HSB051003

    Hand-held gamma ray spectrometers are a vital tool for detecting and identifying nuclear materials to counter the threat of radiological and nuclear terrorism. The HPGe crystals in these detectors must operate at cryogenic temperatures to achieve good energy resolution. We propose to develop an innovative, miniature cryogenic cooling system that will be ideal for hand-held detectors. High efficien ...

  2. Scalable Time-Space Surveillance System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    Surveillance systems record spatially and time-referenced sensor data, such as video imagery. With a growing need to monitor larger regions for longer intervals, there is a corresponding geometric growth in the size of the four-dimensional time-space surveillance recording. Tools that allow efficient exploration of this time-space are key to extracting value from the surveillance data. The critica ...

  3. Intelligent Automated Scenario/Script Builder

    SBC: Rite-solutions, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Simulation-based exercises offer a cost-efficient and effective method of training as opposed to live exercise participation. The use of simulation provides the advantage of capturing and analyzing consequences of decisions made by crisis management personnel. With a growing need for more simulation-based exercises, there is a corresponding need to develop scenarios quickly and easily. The critica ...

  4. Botnet Detection and Mitigation

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: HSB061008

    Botnets have become a lucrative and monetized line of business for criminal organizations. As of late they have been found in a growing number of cases involving cyber-extortion via Distributed Denial-of-Services (DDOS), and mass phishing where their use of encryption and packing schemes keeps them off the radar of traditional discovery heuristics. The sophistication and proliferation of botnets i ...

  5. Laser-Based Acoustic Emission Detection for Building Stability Assessment

    SBC: AAC International            Topic: HSB052005

    A laser-based acoustic emission (AE) detection device is proposed for structural stability assessment of buildings in order to provide warning of structural instability or pending collapse. It will help to reduce injuries and fatalities during emergency mitigation operations. This new device will take advantage of innovations in laser ultrasonics, artificial intelligence (AI) and advanced acoustic ...

  6. Vector Array Buoy Detection System

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: HSB052003

    Applied Physical Sciences Corp. will develop a distributed buoy detection system using an advanced acoustic receiver. The sonar array will consist of a vertical line of vector hydrophones to maximize gain against unwanted ambient noise and provide 20+nm detection ranges for targets of interest. Additionally the single vector vertical line array will provide target bearing and tracking data that ca ...

  8. Cost-Saving Enhancements to the Swimmer Detection Sonar Network (SDSN)

    SBC: Scientific Solutions, Inc.            Topic: HSB051004

    A low cost Swimmer Detection Sonar Network (SDSN) is now being developed under an ONR Phase 2 SBIR and as a joint project between the USA and Singapore. The SDSN is a network of inexpensive sonar nodes where narrow sonar beams are formed using airbacked parabolic reflectors. The feasibility of the system has been proven through trials conducted in Singapore harbor and full development is well unde ...

  10. FLAME RETARDANT FLEXIBLE POLYURETHANE FOAM FINDS WIDESPREAD COMMERCIAL USE AS A SEATING MATERIAL DUE TO ITS FAVORABLE COST, SUPPORT, AND RESILIENCE CHARACTERISTICS.

    SBC: Springborn Materials Science            Topic: N/A

    FLAME RETARDANT FLEXIBLE POLYURETHANE FOAM FINDS WIDESPREAD COMMERCIAL USE AS A SEATING MATERIAL DUE TO ITS FAVORABLE COST, SUPPORT, AND RESILIENCE CHARACTERISTICS. HOWEVER, SMOKE AND TOXIC GAS EVOLUTION IN THE EVENT OF FIRE IS A MAJOR PROBLEM. THE GOAL OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO CREATE A FIRE RESISTANT COMPOSITE FOAM STRUCTURE WHICH WILL GENERATE NEGLIGIBLE QUANTITIES OF TOXIC FUMES WHEN EXPOSED TO FI ...
