The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Fusion of VMS and Radiation Sensor Data for Real-Time Identification and Tracking

    SBC: Silverside Detectors Inc.            Topic: HSB0181010

    Traditionally, implementation of dedicated, continuous nuclear and radiological monitoring systems for identifying and tracking nuclear materials out of regulatory control is associated with high operational burdens. Although video and images from cameras are helpful in assessing threats, the raw, unstructured data require time-intensive human interaction to extract the relevant actionable informa ...

  2. Tracking Nuclear Threats in Security Camera Networks (TNT-SCAN)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: HSB0181010

    The implementation of continuous nuclear and radiological monitoring systems enabling the automatic detection and tracking of potential nuclear threats is traditionally associated with a high operational burden. Sensors typically have to be monitored by dedicated personnel, who must investigate detection events in a timely manner; however, high nuisance alarm rates can rapidly overwhelm already-ta ...

  3. PCS-Enabled Unattended Radiation Detection and Attribution System

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: HSB0171009

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop a PCS-Enabled Unattended Radiation Detection and Attribution System (PURDAS) that will be able to detect, identify, and attribute radiological sources to specific source carriers or conveyances. The PURDAS will include a COTS gamma and neutron detection capability as well as a visible camera, onboard processing, and wireless radios. PURDAS units wil ...

  4. Wearable Fentanyl Analog Sensor

    SBC: Polestar Technologies, Inc.            Topic: HSB0181001

    A Phase I SBIR is proposed for the development of a wearable sensor to protect law enforcement and first responders from inadvertent exposure to potentially toxic levels of fentanyl and/or fentanyl analogs.The Phase I project will demonstrate the ability of the new sensor to selectively detect the presence of fentanyl analog vapors from solid samples or air-borne particulates in concentrations bel ...

  5. Rapid Tox-Based Wearable Sensing Badge for Solid Aerosol and Contact Exposure to Fentanyls

    SBC: Nano Terra, Inc.            Topic: HSB0181001

    Nano Terra proposes to develop a low-cost and wearable detector badge that quickly and selec-tively alerts the user to the presence of solid fentanyl aerosols with an audible and visual alert. Current commercial fentanyl and opioid detectors are bulky and costly and have unsuitably-high limits of detection. Nano Terra will leverage their expertise in ultra-sensitive dosimetric detection of threat ...

  6. Multi-Signature Composite Detector

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: HSB0161012

    Radiation Monitoring Devices (RMD) has proposed a composite detector technology for multi-mode detection, based on incorporation of the inorganic scintillation material into an organic host such as the plastic scintillator, suitable for handheld and backpack applications. Plastic scintillator serves as an optical light guide, and can additionally provide gamma and fast neutron detection and pulse ...

  7. Virtual Source Training Toolkit

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: HSB0161011

    Physical Sciences, Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop a Virtual Source Training Toolkit that will reduce the cost of training personnel to detect and localize a radiological source. The toolkit will be able to simulate the response of a handheld radiation detector to a virtual source using a COTS smart device and Bluetooth beacon network. The toolkit will include easy-to-use interfaces to guide the ...

  10. Unattended Node for Integrated Radiation Detection and Communication

    SBC: Silverside Detectors Inc.            Topic: HSB0171009

    The specific technical opportunity to be addressed is to take advantage of the current state-of-the-art technology available in the radiation detection space to develop a new Unattended Radiation Detection System (URDS) that will enable rapid deployment and signal integration into the end user's Security Network Platform (SNP). The objective of the Phase I effort is to evaluate component tradeoffs ...
