  1. 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 ...

  2. Smart Chart AIS

    SBC: Technology Systems Inc.            Topic: HSB0111001

    The ability to track small vessels is critical to national security, but not easily accomplished due to the sheer volume of craft and the range of environments which they operate within. The introduction of smart-phones with location, orientation, camera, and Internet capabilities is enabling collaborative applications that have strong locative potential. These devices are capable of acting as bas ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Novel Very Large Scintillator Crystal Growth Method

    SBC: Nanotrons            Topic: SBIR111003

    Scintillators have been used in radiation detection applications including medical imaging, oil well drilling, and high energy physics experiments. The new security need for scintillators has changed the market dynamics from specialty niche to volume production. In this program, Nanotrons proposes a manufacturing method that potentially produces scintillator of very large size and high crystal qua ...

  6. 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 ...

  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. Network Survivability, Recovery & Reconstitution (NS2R)

    SBC: Centripetal Networks, Inc.            Topic: HSB0102003

    Centripetal Networks, Inc. (CNI) will research and develop a Network Protection System (NPS) capable of providing a Network Survivability, Recovery, and Reconstitution (NS2R) service requested by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). NS2R will help the DHS achieve its mission to secure, protect, and defend US Internet infrastructure. This NPS builds on CNI's successful completion of the SBIR ...

  9. Natural Language Processing and Prioritization for Contextual Symbolic Rendering

    SBC: Digital Sandbox Inc.            Topic: HSB0112006

    With the desire to be prepared for possible threat scenarios, DHS has access to data, but it can be disparate with a mix of structured and unstructured data in very large quantities. Information from a variety of sources needs to be ingested and processed in order to determine the "what, when, where, and how bad", then presented geospatially for monitoring and analysis purposes. Constructing and m ...

  10. 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 ...
