  2. 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 ...

  3. Non-Contact Device for Latent Fingerprint Capture

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: HSB0151001

    The Department of Homeland Security is seeking to develop a method for latent print work and DNA analysis from the same sample while optimizing DNA extraction protocol for fingerprints deposited on evidentiary materials used for human identification. Current DNA extraction protocols are highly successful at capturing DNA from prints. However, print lifting methods depend on physical alteration o ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Compact Boron-Filled 3D Semiconductor Neutron Detector Module

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: HSB0151009

    A Neutron detection device is an indispensable tool for Homeland Security, defense, power and medical applications. The proliferation of weapons of mass destruction such as nuclear weapons is a serious threat in today's world. Low cost, low power, high performance, rugged and portable neutron detection devices are highly desirable for these applications. Yet, the cost and production volume of the ...

  6. Semiconductor Neutron Detector

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: HSB0151009

    We propose to develop a thermal neutron detection module based on LiInSe2 semiconductor material as an alternative to He-3 detectors. While recent depletion of He-3 gas is the main driving force behind development of He-3 replacements, other issues with He-3 tubes such as a pressurized vessel used and microphonic issues are also important factors in handheld and portable detectors. LiInSe2 offers ...

  7. TlBr Detectors for Radiation Pagers

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: HSB0151009

    RMD is proposing to construct a compact detector module utilizing a TlBr semiconductor device as the radiation sensitive element. While designed for pager applications, the highly efficient nature of TlBr and its spectroscopic potential will produce a detector technology that should greatly expand the capabilities of these instruments. The development will first require an evaluation of large vol ...

  8. Laser Exposure Measurement Device

    SBC: Optra, Inc.            Topic: HSB0142004

    The widespread use and deployment of laser systems in the public domain has led to the need for laser exposure measurement systems that operate over wide spectral range and provide sufficient dynamic range to measure exposure relative to maximum permissible exposure (MPE) limits and establish normal hazard zones (NHZ). OPTRA, Inc. proposes a solution based on multiple detector arrays, custom CMOS ...

  9. Magnetically Switchable Explosuves Vapor Isolator (1002- 241)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: HSB0101004

    The objective of this work is to accelerate the commercialization of the technology developed in the DHS SBIR Program under the SBIR Commercial Readiness Pilot Program. In this effort, Triton's pre-concentrator will be interfaced with a TSA approved ETD and tested with a range of trace explosives of interest to DHS. A packaging system will be designed that is appropriate for commercial use. Lifecy ...
