  2. Protective Panels for Bridge Supports

    SBC: Cellular Materials International, Inc.            Topic: HSB082001

    Cellular Materials International, Inc. (CMI)proposes an innovative energy-absorbing MicroTrussTM panel structure to protect the nation`s busiest, most critical bridges from a close-in, high-intensity blast event. The ability of this panel system to mitigate and deflect blast energy was demonstrated in Phase I through finite element analysis modeling and a subscale, close proximity blast test. Du ...

  3. Customized STR Typing System for Kinship Analysis

    SBC: NetBio, Inc.            Topic: HSB091001

    First described in the early 1990`s, short tandem repeat (STR) analysis is the gold standard of human identification. With a false identification rate as low as one in hundreds of trillions, STR analysis is a powerful tool for determining human identification objectively. The goal of this work is to improve the ability to evaluate kinship based on STR analyses. By creating an STR assay system tha ...

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: HSB061002

    We propose to supply an improved version of our recently demonstrated trace explosive detection technology. This technology is comprised of a surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) sampling chip, a highly efficient air collection design, and a low cost Raman signal detection technique for trace peroxide-based explosive detection. This novel approach overcomes intrinsic limitations of current de ...

  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 ...

    SBC: EXCELLIMS CORPORATION            Topic: HSB061003

    Recently, trace detection and imaging portal systems have begun to be deployed into airport check points and other high threat facilities, to meet the need for detecting explosives on people. In this project, we propose a sample collection method that is similar to the one used in trace portal systems; however, instead of using large scale air handling systems to release, collect, and transport sa ...
