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

    SBC: INTUVISION            Topic: HSB081005

    With growing concerns about the security of our borders and vulnerable entry points video imagery has emerged as a high potential surveillance data source for generating real time situational information. This potential comes with its challenges due to the large volumes of data need to be processed, lack of smart sensors to automatically detect and understand video content, bandwidth limitations t ...

  2. CVD Diamond Neutron Detectors with Pulse Shape Discrimination

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 0812

    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. During Phase II ...

  3. Rapid, Ruggedized, and Fully Integrated STR Typing for Kinship Analysis

    SBC: NetBio, Inc.            Topic: HSB091001

    The availability of a ruggedized, fully integrated STR typing instrument that combines DNA purification, amplification, separation and detection, and data analysis into a single, easy-to-operate system would represent a substantial advance in human identification. The purpose of the Phase I SBIR proposal is to plan the development of a device that enables the rapid determination of kinship of pers ...

  4. Proof of Concept Demonstration of a Compact Accelerator

    SBC: Passport Systems, Inc.            Topic: HSB072007

    Electron accelerators that produce high duty cycle electron beams with beam energies up to 9 MeV are essential for use in practical Nuclear Resonance Fluorescence and EZ-3DTM imaging technologies. While isotopic identification of shielded materials is now possible via these technologies, it is still necessary to achieve accelerator portability, compactness and reasonable cost of ownership to make ...

  5. New Neutron Detectors with Pulse Shape Discrimination

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: HSB071009

    Proliferation of the weapons of mass destruction such as nuclear weapons is a serious threat in the world today. Preventing the spread of nuclear weapons has reached a state of heightened urgency in recent years, especially since the events on September 11, 2001 and its aftermath. One way to passively determine the presence of nuclear weapons is to detect and identify characteristic signatures of ...

  6. Handheld Trace Explosives Sampler

    SBC: Implant Sciences Corporation            Topic: HSB071001

    Non contact trace explosives detection has not been comparable to results obtained from wipe sampling. Many issues, including finding a method to release particles from a surface, efficient particle and vapor transport, and limited particle and vapor trap collection efficiency have all limited the process. Other related issues have included cost of ownership, ease of contamination removal, and com ...

  7. Chem Bio Sensor Wizard for Engineering Environmental Protection

    SBC: Peerless Technologies Corporation            Topic: HSB062001

    In Phase I, the Peerless team developed an approach for an innovative wizard driven, turn-key, system that can be used by inexperienced operators to quickly design new sensor networks and evaluate existing sensor networks for the protection against and detection of CB agents within public structures. For Phase II, Peerless will conduct three development spirals to build the prototype system, valid ...

  8. High Quantum Efficiency, Fast Detectors for the Readout of Scintillators for Gamma-Ray Detection

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: HSB062007

    Gamma-ray spectrometers consisting of inorganic scintillators coupled to optical detectors such as photomultiplier tubes (PMTs) are an important element of the systems that are used to monitor and prevent the spread of special nuclear materials. Two very important requirements for the scintillation detectors used as gamma-ray spectrometers in homeland security monitoring include high sensitivity a ...

  10. 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 ...
