  1. CNT-Based D2 Ion Source for Improved Neutron and Photon Generator

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: HSB072007

    The Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO) requires non-intrusive radiation detection equipment to identify special nuclear materials (SNM). Preferred neutron sources for the detection of SNM should have narrow pulse width, low source neutron energy, high yield and be based on non-radioactive materials. Applied Nanotech, Inc. (ANI) proposes to develop a novel field ionization technology to produ ...

  2. High Resolution MMW Radar for Occupancy Sensing and Speed Measurement

    SBC: Epsilon Lambda Electronics Corp.            Topic: N/A

    The Department of Homeland Security has identified the need, in Topic H-SB06.1-010, to develop a sensor, for use with radionuclide screening systems , that will determine the relative lateral position of the conveyance. A second benefit would be that the sensor provide speed measurement of the cargo container as it passes through the screening area. Proposed for this requirement a high resolution ...

  3. Highly Efficient Portable Trace Explosives Sampling System

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The transportation system is an attractive target for terrorists because it could allow them to cause immediate harm to large numbers of people and create anxiety for many more. The detection and mitigation of attacks on transportation are made more difficult by the transient nature of the passengers and the fact that passengers often carry a lot of luggage. X-ray machines and computer tomography- ...

  4. Wide-Area Infrared Imager (WAIRI) for Increasing Human Detection Probability

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Koopman search theory is built on the concept of sweep width to determine the probability of detection (POD) for a target in a defined area. Turret-mounted forward-looking infrared (FLIR) imagers have a high POD for targets within a narrow field of view but these devices, if used alone, severely limit effective sweep width. Lynntech proposes an infrared imager with a wide field of view which is de ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Realtime Global Biometrics Screening Capability

    SBC: TRIDENT RESEARCH, LLC            Topic: N/A

    At present, the field of mobile biometric screening devices is limited to either strictly data capture devices or devices with limited data processing and communication capability, because of reliance on Personal Digital Assistant technologies. PDA based architectures have provided a means for quick development of biometric field devices, but they also significantly limit data processing and commu ...

  7. Flexible, Auto-configuring, Sensor, Transmission Web (FASTWeb)

    SBC: WILLIAMSRDM, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Williams-Pyro Inc., WPI, is proposing to develop a Miniature Netted Sensor (MNS) system - a modular sensor web system that aggregates sensor data to detect, track, and classify targets. Our solution combines aggregate data analysis, ultra-low power, low-bandwidth wireless networking with energy-efficient routing protocols. The MNS system consists of the following components: A) Modular wireless se ...

  8. Wireless, Energy-efficient, Adaptable, Robust Network (WearNet)

    SBC: WILLIAMSRDM, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Williams-Pyro, Inc. proposes to develop a modular wireless body area network that can forward real-time information about a specific first responder from a flexible array of multiple sensors to a receiver. Our solution combines short-range, low-bandwidth wireless networking with energy-efficient routing protocols. We will uniquely integrate two wireless networks: an on-body static network of senso ...

  9. Cold Cathode Radiation Sources


    The proposed Flat panel X-ray Sources (FPXS) use cold cathode arrays lithographically formed on the exit window to emit hundred of thousands of e-beams towards a broad X-ray target. The X-rays thus generated emit out past the cathode arrays and the exit window. Since the X-ray flux is generated across a wide area it can be directed locally and directly towards objects to be sterilized, such as blo ...

  10. Oligonucleotide Enzyme Surrogate (OnES)

    SBC: Accacia International LLC            Topic: CBD08108

    Historically organophosphorus compounds such as insecticides and nerve agents have been susceptible to decomposition by proteinaceous enzymes. Organophosphate hydrolases (OPH) represent a practical method to deactivate such compounds peripherally and on surfaces. However, when such organophosphates are ingested, the use of proteinaceous enzymes such as OPH can be problematic because of their tende ...
