  1. A fast pulse, portable fast neutron source for special nuclear materials detection

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corp proposes to develop a fast pulse, portable, fast neutron source to detect SNM in the field. Our source offers a 20ns neutron pulse with a repetition rate up to 1kHz. The goal is to develop a source with 1000hrs of continuous operation at 1E8 n/s. The Ph I program will demonstrate the critical features of the source including pulse width, reproducibility and neutron yi ...

  2. Safe-Cracker Distributed Network Code Breaking Project

    SBC: AccessData Corporation            Topic: HSB071006

    Increasing complexity of encryption used by criminals presents an ongoing challenge to law enforcement agencies. Effective code breaking attack methods have been developed for attacking many of the cryptosystems used by criminals, however, frequently attacking these files requires mammoth amounts of CPU power achieved only through the coordinated effort of hundreds or thousands of computers. Acces ...

  3. Optimizing remote capture of biometrics for screening processes

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: HSB072003

    Aculight, teamed with Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control (LMMFC), will deliver a system for remote capture of biometrics for screening processes in the Phase II of this proposed work. This system will have a range in excess of 100 meters, if needed, and supply facial depth resolution of < 2 mm. This aggressive goal is enabled by the DOD investment in 3D LIDAR at LMMFC and in eye-safe fiber ...

  4. High-Yield Pulsed Neutron Generator

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

    A pulsed neutron generator is proposed for the detection of special nuclear material. A recently developed RF-excited plasma neutron generator will be pulsed to produce the activating neutrons whose pulse length is 100 microseconds with a fall time of less than 1 microsecond. High pulse repetition rates and high peak neutron yields can be otained depending upon the RF generator used. Using the T-T ...

  5. Cost Effective Distributed Buoy Vessel Detection System

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: HSB052003

    A layered approach to Maritime Domain Awareness begins with surveillance of vessel traffic as far offshore as possible to allow the advantage of time and space to identify and intercept threats before they can get close enough to affect the Homeland. The team of Advanced Acoustic Concepts (AAC) and Sparton Electronics has provided a solution to this deepwater surveillance problem with a lowcost di ...

  6. Portable Rescue Jaw and Spreader

    SBC: Advanced Design Consulting USA, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Jaws-Of-Life is a hydraulic rescue tool used to rip cars apart. They consist of a pair of metal claws that are used to spread/cut/rip automobiles or other metal constructions apart in order to save persons who may be trapped inside. The Jaws of Life were originally designed for race track use but have since become a tool of rescue crews everywhere. Hale Products presently own the trademark Jaw ...

  7. Radiological Source Surveillance With V-RADS Video-Centric Radiatiion Detection

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Radiological sources are in everyday use in numerous industries. Illicit removal of this material from storage could result in construction of a Radiological Dispersal Device or Dirty Bomb. A pervasive means of securing radiological materials and identifying breaches in security is required. Ideally, existing passive surveillance technology would be used, thereby enabling rapid and cost effective ...

  8. Mobile Stand-Off Secure Wireless Biometrics Screening Device


    Lightweight portable biometrics screening tools are needed to accurately and rapidly screen and manage the identities of individuals at the scene of an incident. Such tools are preferably not dependant on local infrastructure, which may be compromised, and should operate in both land (e.g. border security) and maritime (e.g. coast guard) environments. A device that is portable, lightweight, secure ...

  9. Non-Contact Sampling Wand For The Detection Of Trace Explosives Material

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Aerodyne Research, Inc. proposes to design, build and test a non-contact sampling wand intended for the detection of energetic materials which will involve collection and subsequent concentration of particles, and real-time coupling to a hand-held ion mobility spectrometer-based detector. This non-contact sampler will be easily retrofitted to commercially available detectors and require minimal el ...

  10. Framework for Biometric Identification on the Move

    SBC: AFIS and Biometrics Consulting Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a methodology and test and evaluation framework for optimizing the remote capture of multimodal biometrics for automated screening and identification to the practical extent possible while the individuals are on the move, walking through an automated gate or corridor at the airport or a walkway across the border. In Phase one we will establish a set of multimodal biometrics ...
