  1. Distributed Computational Intelligence for Unattended Radiation Detection Networks

    SBC: BluEyeQ, LLC            Topic: HSB0171009

    BluEyeQ LLC and Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) are pleased to propose a persistent, unattended radiation detection network based on distributed computational intelligence. Our basic premise is long duration, "unattended" operation is only achieved by judicious use of power resources at all levels of the system. We take a holistic system design approach for maximizing detection probabilit ...

  2. Real-Time In-Situ Measurement of Void Fraction and Specific Surface in Fresh Concrete

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 171FH2

    Water expansion during freeze-thaw cycles can cause deterioration in concrete, leading to scaling, cracking, and crumbling over a period of years. Resistance to this damage is achieved with a system of voids formed by adding surfactants to the fresh concrete to stabilize air bubbles naturally entrained during mixing. The volume fraction, size, and spacing of these voids are critical. It is importa ...

  3. RailMonitor: Real-Time Broken Rail Detection System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 171FR2

    Broken rails are a common cause of mainline derailments and a particular concern given the increasing use of our rail system for passenger traffic and petroleum products. The progressive nature of the defects provides an opportunity for early detection of cracks before they become significant enough to cause a derailment. Unfortunately, current inspection technology does not allow these inspection ...

  4. InnerAwareness: Preemptive Cyber Defense and Situational Understanding Through Memory-Oriented Cyber Genomics and Physiology

    SBC: ZeroPoint Dynamics LLC            Topic: HSB0161003

    Motivated by a real operational need to tackle threats posed by the onslaught of constantly evolving exploits and malware, this proposal describes techniques for dynamically analyzing malware that addresses weaknesses in the status quo by (i) focusing on memory-oriented artifacts without the use of traditional sandbox hooks, while at the same time (ii) providing operators with enhanced situationa ...

  5. Improved Thermal and Acoustic Comfort for Motorcycle Helmets

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 151NH1

    Use of motorcycles helmets significantly reduces the risk of fatality or serious brain injury to riders in the event of a crash, but riders often do not wear helmets in warm weather because of thermal discomfort. We propose to develop an innovative ventilation and cooling system that will maintain a cool, dry environment inside the helmet while also meeting applicable safety standards. The key the ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Handheld Multianalyte Biosensor Platform

    SBC: TIRF Technologies            Topic: HSB052001

    The goal of this project is to develop a handheld biosensor for rapid detection of bioanalytes such as proteins, peptides, nucleic acids, toxins, viruses, bacteria and other molecular targets that represent interest for the biodefense area. We propose to build a rugged device, similar to a palm computer, equipped with a disposable sensor cartridge designed for simultaneous detection of multiple ta ...

  9. SMART Hybrid Container System

    SBC: Mariner Container Corp.            Topic: HSB051006

    The global economy has brought about enormous opportunities in the areas of trade with developing nations. Nowhere is it more evident than in the East Asian basin. In 2002, over 12 million TEU containers where imported into the U.S. with over 60% originating in China/Hong Kong. In the same year, only 7 million TEU containers where exported from the U.S. to the rest of the world. What happened to t ...

  10. 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 ...
