  1. Advanced Sample Collection System

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: HSB071001

    The objective of this effort is to design, construct, and demonstrate a highly efficient trace particulate and vapor sample collection system. Used in conjunction with any of the commercial trace explosive detection technologies, this will create a viable real-time non-contact screening technology for explosive materials of unprecedented performance. We have already internally developed a propriet ...

  2. Tamper Resistant Stretch Wrap

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: HSB071003

    Stretch wrap film is increasingly being used to secure palletized cargo for shipment due to its low cost and ease of use with irregular loads. IST is proposing to develop a stretch wrap material that provides a visible means of tamper indication. This will be accomplished by impregnating the wrapping material with liquid tagging agents. These agents will remain clear while in the film in order to ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. RELIABLE PEROXIDE-BASED EXPLOSIVES DETECTION WITH LOW FALSE ALARM RATE

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: HSB061002

    We propose a new trace explosive collection and detection technique comprising Surface-Enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS) sampling chip and cell design of permeable/porous polymer matrix embedded with multi-layered gold nano-particles. The approach leverages the leading-edge micro-optical component development and manufacture at Agiltron and extensive experience in nano-material engineering within t ...

  5. Technology enhanced science education.

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    There is a troubling decline in the number of US citizens training to become scientists and engineers. There are insufficient numbers of qualified science teachers in the middle schools, where interest in science must be kindled. Technology enhanced learning environments (TELEs), which could improve science education, are not being widely deployed. This Phase I project will customize a TELE to a) ...

  7. Intelligent Molecular Model Kit and Software Suite for Improving High School Chemistry Instruction and Student Achievement

    SBC: MolySym, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Model perception and understanding the spatial structure of organic molecules have historically been a source of difficulty for high school chemistry students. The classic ball-and-stick model, developed in 1865, is still used today to convey the fundamental characteristics of a molecular system. This model is an inadequate representation of a dynamic system, which fails to accurately represent ...

  8. Radiological Source Surveillance With V-RADS Video-Centric Radiatiion Detection

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Radiological sources are in everyday use in numerous industries. Illicit removal of this material from storage could result in construction of a Radiological Dispersal Device or Dirty Bomb. A pervasive means of securing radiological materials and identifying breaches in security is required. Ideally, existing passive surveillance technology would be used, thereby enabling rapid and cost effective ...

  9. Non-Contact Sampling Wand For The Detection Of Trace Explosives Material

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Aerodyne Research, Inc. proposes to design, build and test a non-contact sampling wand intended for the detection of energetic materials which will involve collection and subsequent concentration of particles, and real-time coupling to a hand-held ion mobility spectrometer-based detector. This non-contact sampler will be easily retrofitted to commercially available detectors and require minimal el ...

  10. 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 ...
