  1. Networked Aerial Vehicle for Automated Radiation Clearing (NAVARC)

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: HSB0191010

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop the Networked Aerial Vehicle for Automated Radiation Clearing (NAVARC) to perform an autonomous search for radiological threats in a complex 3-D environment. The PSI-developed InstantEye unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) will navigate using a series of optimized waypoints to minimize the time required to fully search an area and inspect objects. Detecti ...

  2. Monitoring and Inspecting Dirty Nukes Including Generating Heatmaps of Terrain (MIDNIGHT)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: HSB0191010

    A successful weapon of mass destruction (WMD) terrorist attack against the United States would have a profound and potentially catastrophic impact on our nation. It is imperative to be able to quickly, efficiently, and effectively localize radiological threats in a wide array of unstructured environments to detect and deter such an event. In recent years, man-portable radiation detectors have beco ...

  3. Rapid Tox-Based Wearable Sensing Badge for Solid Aerosol and Contact Exposure to Fentanils

    SBC: Nano Terra, Inc.            Topic: HSB0181001

    Clear Scientific, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Nano Terra, proposes to develop a low-cost and wearable detector badge that quickly alerts the user in real time to the presence of solid or aerosolized fentanils with an audible and visual alert. Current commercial opioid detectors are bulky, costly, and cannot be used passively in real time. Clear Scientific will leverage their expertise in ultra-se ...

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

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: HSB0181010

    Implementing continuous nuclear and radiological monitoring systems that support automatic detection and tracking of potential nuclear threats is traditionally associated with a high operational burden. Sensors are typically monitored by dedicated personnel, who must investigate detection events in a timely manner. High nuisance alarm rates can rapidly overwhelm already taxed law enforcement perso ...

  6. Smartphone Enabled Spectroscopic Gamma-Neutron Radiation Sensor

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: HSB0141006

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

  7. Canine Attached Networked Imaging System (CANIS)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: HSB0151007

    K9 units provide valuable and unique capabilities to law enforcement operations, including pursuit, search and rescue, and contraband detection. However, there is currently no standard method for tracking the location of K9 teams or transmitting video back to the command center for situational awareness and legal documentation. Several commercial off the shelf (COTS) canine-mounted camera systems ...

  8. WiHub: Wearable Intelligent Communication Hub

    SBC: Architecture Technology, Inc.            Topic: HSB0151005

    The huge growth in mobile industry including smartphones and tablets, wearable devices, and the internet of things, caused an explosion in the number of sensor technologies and sensory data. This growth was accompanied by huge leaps in wireless communication technologies in term of speed and geographical coverage. When a highly-trained first responder arrives at an incident scene, an array of comm ...

  10. Stable Tl-based Semiconductor Modules for Radiation Detection

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: HSB0151009

    Thallium-based semiconductors are promising materials for detection of gamma rays, primarily due to their high Z, high electrical conductivity and optimum bandgap energy. This program focuses on two materials TlBr and Tl4I6Se. For TlBr, this program seeks to overcome long term stability issues related to presence of mobile ions. For Tl4I6Se, this program seeks to improve the crystalline and chem ...
