  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. Generation of bivalent aptamers with high affinity and selectivity for detection of viruses and bacteria from environmental samples

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

    Better methodologies for the rapid detection of pathogenic bacteria and viruses are needed. A problem with current antibody-based assays is cross-reactivity with similar, but harmless, species. RMD, Inc., proposes developing nucleic acid-based affinity reagents (aptamers) against the spore coat of the model organism Bacillus thuringiensis. Aptamers displaying fast binding rates (kon) will be selec ...

  3. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. CBRN Decision Support Tool

    SBC: CENTRA Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    While there are DHS programs to compare risks, some of which look specifically at CBRN risk, these tools have had limited practical utility for informing realistic risk mitigation strategies or supporting programmatic decisions at the national or regional level. CENTRA Technology, Inc.(CENTRA) proposes a CBRN Strategic Decision Support Tool that will build upon some of the more mature programs wi ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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, ...

  10. 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 ...
