  2. Rapid Tox-Based Wearable Sensing Badge for Solid Aerosol and Contact Exposure to Fentanyls

    SBC: Nano Terra, Inc.            Topic: HSB0181001

    Nano Terra proposes to develop a low-cost and wearable detector badge that quickly and selec-tively alerts the user to the presence of solid fentanyl aerosols with an audible and visual alert. Current commercial fentanyl and opioid detectors are bulky and costly and have unsuitably-high limits of detection. Nano Terra will leverage their expertise in ultra-sensitive dosimetric detection of threat ...

  3. PCS-Enabled Unattended Radiation Detection and Attribution System

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: HSB0171009

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop a PCS-Enabled Unattended Radiation Detection and Attribution System (PURDAS) that will be able to detect, identify, and attribute radiological sources to specific source carriers or conveyances. The PURDAS will include a COTS gamma and neutron detection capability as well as a visible camera, onboard processing, and wireless radios. PURDAS units wil ...

  4. Measuring the Concentration of Host-cell Proteins in Biomanufacturing Using Silicon Nanowire Array Sensors

    SBC: Advanced Silicon Group            Topic: NA

    Our innovation is a low cost, sensitive, quantitative biosensor that can detect many biomarkers on the same chip. Our sensor consists of vertically aligned silicon nanowires. The silicon nanowires’ high surface area to volume ratio makes them sensitive to the environment around them and can thus lead to high sensitivity detection. Each of the nanowires can be functionalized to be sensitive to ei ...

  5. Fusion of VMS and Radiation Sensor Data for Real-Time Identification and Tracking

    SBC: Silverside Detectors Inc.            Topic: HSB0181010

    Traditionally, implementation of dedicated, continuous nuclear and radiological monitoring systems for identifying and tracking nuclear materials out of regulatory control is associated with high operational burdens. Although video and images from cameras are helpful in assessing threats, the raw, unstructured data require time-intensive human interaction to extract the relevant actionable informa ...

  6. Tracking Nuclear Threats in Security Camera Networks (TNT-SCAN)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: HSB0181010

    The implementation of continuous nuclear and radiological monitoring systems enabling the automatic detection and tracking of potential nuclear threats is traditionally associated with a high operational burden. Sensors typically have to be monitored by dedicated personnel, who must investigate detection events in a timely manner; however, high nuisance alarm rates can rapidly overwhelm already-ta ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
