  5. Rare Variant Detection Using Next Genration Sequencing Technology

    SBC: EUREKA GENOMICS CORPORATION            Topic: HSB0101002

    The long-term objective is to develop a rare variant (SNPs) detection pipeline, based on high throughput sequencing (HTS) and advanced bioinformatics, with the goal of detecting mutations present in ratio as low as 1:1000. To achieve this goal, we propose to: (1) Develop statistical and computational approaches to evaluate the effects of sequencing platform, target genome, and mapping algorithm o ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
