  1. Miniature, Rugged Vacuum System for Portable Mass Spectrometers

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: HSB0102002

    The Department of Homeland Security, the Military, and civilian first-responders have an urgent need for sensitive detectors of harmful materials such as biological and chemical warfare agents, toxic industrial chemicals, and explosives. Handheld instruments must be sensitive, be able to detect a wide variety of target compounds in a matter of seconds, reliably discriminate between innocuous and h ...

  2. Dynamic Information Environment for Coordinated

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: HSB0112006

    Emergency responders are tasked with maintaining awareness of a massive number of disparate pieces of information, garnered through a broad variety of electronic sources (e.g., emergency alerting systems, semi-structured RSS feeds, computer-aided dispatch). To be effective, these responders need support tools that allow them to automatically visualize and track the location, type, and status of em ...

  3. Highly Absorptive Nanostructured Chemical Wipe

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: HSB0112002

    Wipe sampling provides a convenient method for determining if a surface is contaminated by chemical warfare agents (CWAs). In wipe sampling, a pad is wetted with solvent and wiped over the surface of interest. The pad is then extracted and the extract is analyzed for the presence of the contaminant. Many of the surfaces that are sampled in an emergency response, cleanup or clearance scenario are p ...

  4. Improved Wipes for Surface Sampling of Chemical Agents on Porous Materials

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: HSB0112002

    In this effort, TIAX LLC will evaluate the innovative combination of commercially available materials that will permit the efficient and reproducible extraction, collection, concentration, recovery and analysis of trace low volatility chemicals that may be present in porous surfaces such as concrete, brick, tile, or painted wallboard. This work builds upon the demonstrated ability of the materials ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Low-Stress Growth of Cesium Barium Iodide Scintillators

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: SBIR111003

    The recent discovery of Eu activated alkali-earth halide scintillators promises to revolutionize remote detection and identification of radioisotopes. This proposal addresses the development of methods for production of large-volume, high-quality CsBa2I5scintillators. High-quality, low-cost scintillators for detection of gamma-rays are needed for monitoring of nuclear non-proliferation and homelan ...

  7. Mixed Barium Halide Scintillators for Gamma Ray Spectroscopy

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: SBIR111003

    The proliferation of weapons of mass destruction such as nuclear missiles and “dirty bombs” is a serious threat in the world today. Preventing the spread of these nuclear weapons has reached a state of heightened urgency in recent years, more so since the events on September 11, 2001 and its aftermath. Gamma-ray spectrometers are an important tool in monitoring the proliferation of nuclear wea ...

  8. Low-power Tri-axial Acoustic Sensor

    SBC: AEROGAGE CORP.            Topic: HSB0112001

    The objective of this topic is to develop an affordable directional acoustic sensor that can be employed with a UGS unit to track targets of interest. The proposed approach is to use an array of three microphones to generate accurate estimates of bearing (azimuth and elevation) of different types of acoustic sources, including aircraft, ground vehicles, and personnel. The proposal includes a novel ...

  9. Hand-held Neutron Detectors

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: SBIR111001

    Proliferation of the weapons of mass destruction such as nuclear weapons is a serious threat and prevention of their spread has reached a state of heightened urgency in recent years. One of the ways to passively determine the presence of nuclear weapons is to detect and identify characteristic signatures of highly enriched uranium and weapons grade plutonium. Neutrons and gamma rays are two signat ...
