  1. A Coded Alternating Micromachined Retroreflector Array (CAMERA)

    SBC: RESEARCH SUPPORT INSTRUMENTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    RSI will develop a technology to improve fire fighter visibility and enable tracking of position/identity. The Coded Alternating Micromachined Retroreflector Array (CAMERA) will use RSI's microscale retroreflectors, a near-infrared (IR) coating and near-IR sources pulsing on alternating video frames to encode fire fighter identities, and a near-IR video camera. These grain-of-sand-sized markers wo ...

  2. A Non-Contact Sensor for Advanced Warning of Structural Collapse

    SBC: Summit Safety, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Summit Safety will develop an ultrasonic, non-contact sensor and system capable of detecting small displacements of structure - such as roof sagging and structural bending - and the acoustic sounds and fire-induced vibrations of structures that are precursors of structural collapse. The system will provide advanced warning to the Incident Commander of potential or imminent structure collapse. In P ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Distributed Buoy Vessel detection System

    SBC: Harris Acoustic Products Corporation            Topic: HSB052003

    In the war on terror, advanced warnings on unidentified small vessels heading towards the US shores is vital. Such vessels have to be detected while they are still in the open oceans and the situation needs to be assessed in a timely manner before the boats can blend in with coastal traffic. Towards that, Harris Acoustic Products Corporation is proposing a simple and automated deepwater buoy-based ...

  8. Improved Spectroscopic Gamma Ray Detectors

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: HSB051002

    Spread of the weapons of mass destruction such as nuclear weapons is a serious threat in the world today. Prevention of the spread of radioactive materials and nuclear weapons has reached a state of heightened urgency in recent years, especially since the events on September 11, 2001 and its aftermath. Gamma ray spectrometers are an important tool in homeland defense and monitoring to check the sp ...

  10. Large Soft X-Ray Fluorescence Detector

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

    Detector Technology will develop and manufacture a 10cm2 large format cone. The cone will be based on a ceramic substrate then coated with glass frit. The cone will then be attached to a standard single channel multiplier. Detector Technology will also investigate different low work function coatings to improve the first strike statistic of fluorescence. Simultaneous research in conjunction with s ...
