  3. Precision Information Environment for Collaborative Emergency Support (PIECES)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: HSB0101003

    Decision makers responding to homeland security incidents must rapidly integrate and manage dynamic, time-sensitive information from many heterogeneous and multimodal information sources. Responders access this information through numerous software applications, all while attempting to collaborate in real-time. Based on the results of our Phase I design effort, we propose to develop and evaluate a ...

  4. Magnetically Switchable Explosives Vapor Isolator(1001-687)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: HSB0101004

    The proposed work details a molecular recognition based explosives pre-concentration and sampling system which can be coupled to a wide variety of current and future commercially available sensors. The system works by initially isolating and concentrating specific explosives from a sample stream through a novel, robust and tunable molecular recognition system. The concentrated molecules are rele ...

  5. New Wide Bandgap Semiconductor Materials for Neutron Detection

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 1012

    In the proposed program, we plan to investigate novel semiconductor neutron detectors based on the wide bandgap lithium containing compositions LiGaSe2, LiGaTe2, LiInS2, and LiInSe2. The goal of the program is to produce detector quality crystals and to demonstrate efficient thermal neutron detection, with the possibility of providing neutron gamma discrimination. We will examine the synthesis and ...

  6. DiamondBack: Sensor Fusion and Feature-Based Human/Animal Classification for UGS

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: HSB092002

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) needs a low cost reliable automated system to detect illegal border crossings. Current seismic UGS systems use cadence-based intrusion detection algorithms and are easily confused between humans and animals. The ensuing false alarms reduce the trustworthiness of the system and lead to unnecessary actions which may be costly. Scientific Systems Company Inc ...

  7. New Scintillator for Neutron Detection

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 1012

    Neutron detection is one of the methods used in revealing illicit nuclear materials. Currently, there is an ongoing search for new and better neutron detectors prompted by anticipated shortages of He-3 that is used in many of the current detection systems. This effort proposes and investigation and development of a new thermal neutron and gamma scintillator. The scintillator belongs to already pro ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...
