  1. CVD Diamond Neutron Detectors with Pulse Shape Discrimination

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Proliferation of nuclear weapons is a serious threat in the world today. One way to determine the presence of nuclear weapons is to detect neutrons emitted by special nuclear material(SNM) such as highly enriched uranium and weapons grade plutonium. The purpose of this project is to develop improved solid state neutron detectors from CVD diamond for homeland security applications. Phase I work wil ...

  2. Improved Solid-State Neutron Detector

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: HSB071009

    The use and applications of radiological sources, for power, medical, and defense applications, continuously increases with time. Illicit nuclear materials represent a threat for the safety of the American citizens and the detection and interdiction of a nuclear weapon is a national problem that has not been yet solved. This represents an enormous challenge to current detection methods and monitor ...

  3. Miniature MEMS-based Chemical & Explosives Detector

    SBC: BOSTON MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: N/A

    Boston MicroSystems (BMS) proposes to develop a cell-phone sized instrument for detecting hazardous chemical and explosive threats. The instrument is based on BMS' PicoSensor® chemical and explosives detection platform, which has been developed in part under DHS support and is capable of sensing explosives and toxic chemicals at ppb and even ppt (trillion) levels. The Picoensor® consists of a ME ...

  4. Non-Contact Trace Explosives Sampling and Preconcentration for Vehicle Borne Improvised Explosive Device Detection

    SBC: EXCELLIMS CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Ion mobility spectrometer based explosives trace detectors (ETD) have been widely used in airport check points, ports of entry, government buildings, and other high security facilities. Most of these systems require manual collection of trace particles from vehicles via direct swabbing of surface areas of interest. Sample collection efficiency and inconsistency pose significant challenges to the e ...

  5. Advanced Gas Sensor

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The underground use of diesel equipment introduces high concentrations of toxic gases such as CO, NO and NO2 into a confined atmosphere. The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has determined th at diesel exhaust is a potential human carcinogen, based on a combination of chemical, genotoxicity, and carcinogenicity data. This is due to t ...

  6. Smart Sensing and Tracking with Video and Mote Sensor Collaboration

    SBC: INTUVISION            Topic: N/A

    Automatic extraction of actionable intelligence from collaborative sensors in a framework that supports seamless exchange of extracted information across sensor layers while leveraging the human in the loop is the focus our proposal. Depending upon the specific end-user, data extracted from the battlefield areas represent two major categories: information requiring and subject to further analyses, ...

  7. Spray on Treatments for Critical Infrastructure Protection

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Resodyn Corporation has proposed an engineered materials approach for preventing or mitigating the damage caused by blast, projectiles, and fire. The proposed Sprayon Treatments for Engineered Protection (STEP) system allows flexibility in both the design of the coating and the application. Sprayable material systems are proposed that have demonstrated blast, projectile and fire protection potenti ...

  9. Co-located Earphone/Microphone for Active Noise Reduction

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The objective of this project is to design, fabricate, and test co-located earphones/microphones for use in in- ear, active noise reduction (ANR) systems. Our innovation is based on a micromachined membrane that serves as both the sensing element for a microphone and simultaneously the actuation surface for the earphone. By collocating the earphone and microph ...

  10. OBSERVE: Ocular-Based Screening Evaluation and Real-Time Verification Examination

    SBC: Veridical Research and Design Corporation            Topic: N/A

    To support DHS's goals of developing new physiological and behavioral sensor technologies for homeland security operations that determine intent to deceive, Veridical Research and Design Corporation proposes to determine the feasibility of developing a conceptual framework and architecture for an ocular-based method of detecting deception intention. The approach is to empirically derive ocular-bas ...
