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. Public Safety Voice Service Solution for Broadband Wireless Infrastructure and Handsets

    SBC: octoScope, Inc.            Topic: HSB0111003

    We will develop PS-specific voice service and system requirements based on the input from the PS community and will design an innovative and practical voice service architecture that can interwork with existing public safety communication systems, including Project 25 LMR, 4.9 GHz WiMAX and commercial cellular networks. Our architecture enables the use of cost-effective commercial handsets while s ...

  2. Monolithic, Electronically and Widely Tunable Quantum Cascade Laser Sources

    SBC: EOS Photonics            Topic: HSB0111004

    EOS Photonics, in collaboration with the group of Prof. Capasso at Harvard University, proposes to develop a novel widely tunable, high power quantum cascade laser source for remote sensing applications. The tuning mechanism relies on the integration of intersubband tuning elements fabricated monolithically with DBR gratings to ensure electrically-controlled wavelength tuning over a wide wavelengt ...

  3. Monolithic Widely Tunable Quantum Cascade Laser

    SBC: Maxion Technologies, Inc.            Topic: HSB0111004

    Maxion Technologies proposes to develop a robust, high power, monolithic, widely tunable Quantum Cascade (QC) laser for use in explosives and chemical sensing applications. We plan to implement a multi-section QC laser to create a monolithically tunable device, similar to those demonstrated in the near IR for telecommunications. This laser will be tuned through application of voltage to tuning ele ...

  4. Monolithic Electronically Tunable M/LWIR Laser Source

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: HSB0111004

    Chemical sensing for explosives and toxic compounds requires a robust, high average power, and fast electronically tunable Mid-and Long-Wave InfraRed (M/LWIR) laser source. We propose to develop a widely tunable Quantum Cascade Laser (QCL) with high spectral modulation bandwidth and fast random access to any wavelength within the tuning range. The technology is based on a proprietary monolithic de ...

  5. Low-power Tri-axial Acoustic Sensor

    SBC: AEROGAGE CORP.            Topic: HSB0112001

    The objective of this topic is to develop an affordable directional acoustic sensor that can be employed with a UGS unit to track targets of interest. The proposed approach is to use an array of three microphones to generate accurate estimates of bearing (azimuth and elevation) of different types of acoustic sources, including aircraft, ground vehicles, and personnel. The proposal includes a novel ...

  6. Highly Absorptive Nanostructured Chemical Wipe

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: HSB0112002

    Wipe sampling provides a convenient method for determining if a surface is contaminated by chemical warfare agents (CWAs). In wipe sampling, a pad is wetted with solvent and wiped over the surface of interest. The pad is then extracted and the extract is analyzed for the presence of the contaminant. Many of the surfaces that are sampled in an emergency response, cleanup or clearance scenario are p ...

  7. Improved Wipes for Surface Sampling of Chemical Agents on Porous Materials

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: HSB0112002

    In this effort, TIAX LLC will evaluate the innovative combination of commercially available materials that will permit the efficient and reproducible extraction, collection, concentration, recovery and analysis of trace low volatility chemicals that may be present in porous surfaces such as concrete, brick, tile, or painted wallboard. This work builds upon the demonstrated ability of the materials ...

  8. Stand-off Explosives Detection by Photothermal Emission Imaging

    SBC: Bodkin Design & Engineering, LLC            Topic: HSB0112004

    TSA is seeking techniques for non-contact detection of trace explosive residue on a person's body, clothing or baggage. A TSA checkpoint screens about 200 passengers per hour. TSA is already deploying millimeter wave and backscatter x-ray Advanced Imaging Technologies (AITs) to enable Transportation Security Officers to detect non-metallic anomalies beneath clothing. TSA is now seeking a trace exp ...

  9. Dynamic Information Environment for Coordinated

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: HSB0112006

    Emergency responders are tasked with maintaining awareness of a massive number of disparate pieces of information, garnered through a broad variety of electronic sources (e.g., emergency alerting systems, semi-structured RSS feeds, computer-aided dispatch). To be effective, these responders need support tools that allow them to automatically visualize and track the location, type, and status of em ...

  10. Eu2 Doped CsBaI3 and CsBa2I5 Scintillators

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: SBIR111003

    The proliferation of weapons of mass destruction such as nuclear missiles and “dirty bombs” is a serious threat in the world today. Preventing the spread of these nuclear weapons has reached a state of heightened urgency in recent years, more so since the events on September 11, 2001 and its aftermath. Gamma-ray spectrometers are an important tool in monitoring the proliferation of nuclear wea ...
