  1. Non-Radioactive Alternative to Replace Radioactive Sources in Commercial Applications

    SBC: STARFIRE INDUSTRIES LLC            Topic: N/A

    This Starfire Industries Phase I SBIR project specifically addresses the need to replace Am-Be sources for the well-logging industry and other applications where sealed radioactive sources are being used. Market factors inhibiting DT fusion neutron generators from replacing Am-Be sources are: (1) still use radioactive tritium (licensing/export), (2) tube lifetimes are measured in hundreds of hours ...

  2. Quick User Vetting for a Multi-jurisdictional Event

    SBC: Oasys International Corporation            Topic: HSB0191002

    The Public Safety Community (Community) would like to share information between jurisdictions, but need to trust with a reasonable certainty that the users viewing this information are who they say they are. Similarly, the Federal government and other organizations need to be reasonably sure that their new users are accessing the right information online. Identity proofing a user, either remotely ...

  3. Advanced Millimeter Wave Security Camera

    SBC: Steel City Optronics, LLC            Topic: 19OATS001

    This project will demonstrate a cost-effective high-speed millimeter wave camera that can image and resolve moving objects from 3 m to 30 m away to enable curb-to-gate screening for airports. Millimeter wave light is often used for security screening because it is safe to use on people and can penetrate packaging, bags, and clothing to identify both metallic and non-metallic objects. The technolog ...

  4. Sensor Processing for Screening at Speed

    SBC: ACCIPITER SYSTEMS, INC            Topic: 18OATS004

    The Apex Screening at Speed program fuses data from multiple sensor technologies and algorithms to detect potential threats in real time. The success of the program hinges on the fusion of data across multiple sensors to provide robust detection with no false negatives and few false positives. Another factor in the architecture of the system is that technology is continually evolving. This require ...

  5. High Acceleration and Hypervelocity Inertial Measurement Unit

    SBC: EngeniusMicro, LLC            Topic: OSD181001

    Gun-launched applications currently expose inertial measurement units (IMUs) to harsh acceleration, shock, and vibration environments. Furthermore, as they become smarter, they present tighter constraints on size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C), while still requiring high levels of performance. New accelerometer technology must reduce SWaP-C while operating through high-g acceleration environmen ...

  6. Electro-optical Seeker

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD181002

    Mission times for high velocity projectiles (HVP) are very short and detection and discrimination of targets must happen quickly and decisively. One way to achieve this is through the enhanced contrast resulting from polarized sensing, which tends to highlight manmade objects and suppress natural background clutter. Thermal polarimetric sensing in a small package has been demonstrated already but ...

  7. Electro-optical Seeker Based on HgCdTe Photodetection

    SBC: EPISENSORS, INC            Topic: OSD181002

    The capability to reliably and remotely detect and track tactical surface targets in a high-velocity projectile after launch is a critical need. The discrimination of man-made objects can be assisted by the detector technology, with options including two-color detectors and polarimetric filtering in the thermal infrared bands. The level of complexity in the focal plane array affects its survivabil ...

  8. Melt-Infiltrated Carbon-Carbon Nosetips and Leading Edges for High Velocity, Gun-Launched Projectiles

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: SCO182003

    Recently developed high velocity projectiles employ tungsten nosetips and titanium alloy control surfaces. The tungsten nose remains thermochemically stable at current muzzle velocities and provides ballast to maintain aerodynamic stability. Present flight velocities allow titanium fins to remain below melt temperatures and their low densities minimize inertial loads on the actuators. In order to ...

  9. LIFT: Learning Imagery for Few-Shot Training/AriA

    SBC: Applied Research in Acoustics LLC            Topic: SCO182006

    To support the detection and identification of high-value targets in mission-critical applications, specifically those for which there are few or no sample images, ARiA will develop and demonstrate the feasibility of LIFT (Learning Imagery for Few-Shot Training), a training-data augmentation tool for use in few-shot learning scenarios that: (1) intelligently applies image-processing functions to e ...

  10. Critical Program Information (CPI) Identification and Assessment Tool

    SBC: Management Analysis Network, LLC, The            Topic: SCO183002

    Protecting the effectiveness of US advanced weapon systems and the technology they rely on is a national priority. Unfortunately, individuals tasked with this mission are met with disjointed guidance, no training, and competing processes to consider. It is no wonder adversaries continue to exploit these weaknesses in the Department of Defense (DOD); stealing our Critical Program Information (CPI) ...
