  1. Low-Cost Radiation Detection Using a Smart Phone

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: HSB0141006

    Accurate high-performance, low-cost handheld devices are needed by law enforcement and first responders for the detection, identification, classification and reporting of radioactive materials. The goal of this program is to produce a compact, low-power radiation identifier that costs less than $500 to make and communicates with a smartphone or tablet for computational analysis. CapeSym will lever ...

  2. Smartphone Enabled Spectroscopic Gamma-Neutron Radiation Sensor

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: HSB0141006

    RMD is proposing the development of Smart-Phone Enabled Radionuclide Identifier (SERI), a new detection instrument designed to take full advantage of smartphone / tablet technology. The hardware platform will include a new advanced scintillator that will provide both high gamma-ray efficiency and spectroscopic performance, but also provide high neutron efficiency. The unit will communicate wireles ...

  3. Detection of Counterfeit Commodity Goods

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: HSB0132005

    In the Phase I program, TIAX LLC developed a detection methodology that was able to measure significant differences between pairs of counterfeit and authentic products in four different product categories. Establishing the proof-of-concept of this technique creates the potential for a new detection methodology that can be utilized at a port of entry by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to i ...

  4. Autonomous Detection and Healing of Silent Vulnerabilities

    SBC: BlueRISC Inc            Topic: HSB0142002

    BlueRISC's proposed solution provides a fundamentally new approach to enable autonomous detection of exploitation attempts as well as healing of silent vulnerabilities. It follows a hybrid approach consisting of (i) new static silent vulnerability point and associated path pre-characterization concepts, and (ii) the insertion of minimal and low-overhead runtime support enabled by the vulnerability ...

  5. Laser Exposure Measurement Device

    SBC: Optra, Inc.            Topic: HSB0142004

    The widespread use and deployment of laser systems has led to the need for laser exposure measurement systems that operate over wide spectral range and provide sufficient dynamic range to measure exposure relative to maximum permissible exposure (MPE) limits and establish normal hazard zones. OPTRA, Inc. proposes a solution based on the complementary combination of CMOS readout integrated circuit ...

  6. Software-based Dynamic Mobile Trusted Module (SW-dMTM)

    SBC: BlueRISC Inc            Topic: HSB0132002

    The proposed SW-dMTM mobile security solution is lean and fully-software-based. The goal is to provide the required Roots of Trust (RoTs) and trusted security services via a fully software implementation while maintaining the heightened level of assurance typically only achieved through additional, security-centric hardware. This will be achieved by building a solution that is not only compatibl ...

  7. Portable Laser Hazard Identification and Monitoring System

    SBC: Spire Corporation            Topic: HSB0142004

    Laser beams present potentially serious hazards to the human eye. Retinal damage can occur for laser eye exposure to milliwatts power levels. The purpose of this proposed program is to develop a portable system for detecting and measuring radiant exposure resulting from laser beams, and to determine whether the detected radiant exposure levels exceed established maximum permissible exposure (MPE ...

  8. NDE for Ablative Thermal Protection Systems

    SBC: Jentek Sensors, Inc.            Topic: H701

    This program addresses the need for non-destructive evaluation (NDE) methods for quality assessment and defect evaluation of thermal protection systems (TPS). Novel linear drive eddy current methods are proposed for NDE of carbon-based TPS materials, such as felts, rigid materials, and three dimensional woven fiber composites. Using a combination of physics-based models of layered media, includin ...

  9. Seam Joining Techniques for Three-Dimensional Woven Carbon Naterial of at Least 1" Thickness.

    SBC: Pham, Tuyetnhung            Topic: H701

    Heat shield technology is a critical component for both re-entry and hypersonic vehicles. The traditional manufacturing approach for designing heat shields consists of joining TPS tiles together with an adhesive that fills any gaps between them. This approach has significant challenges, including the reduction in thermal-mechanical performance as compared to that of acreage woven material. Nhung's ...

  10. Programming Useful Life Prediction (PULP)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A104

    Accurately predicting Remaining Useful Life (RUL) provides significant benefits—it increases safety and reduces financial and labor resource requirements. Relying on just one methodology for RUL prediction is unsuitable because certain methods of prediction perform better for certain use cases and conditions. Approaches must be combined to maximize accuracy. Encoding these hybrid methods is c ...
