  1. AIDnet:: Adaptive Intelligent Distributed Networking Platform To Support Next Generation Emergency Response

    SBC: AID NETWORKS            Topic: N/A

    The recent wave of mass casualties plaguing the public safety community showed that the incident commander s situational awareness of the first responders can be quickly and easily overwhelmed. At emergency scenes, with the overburdened first responders and unreliable communication infrastructure, the lack of accurate and timely information creates an organizational nightmare for incident commande ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. A Novel Peak Detection and Data Fusion Methodology for Multidimensional Chemical Analysis

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: HSB072006

    Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI) proposes a novel peak detection and data fusion methodology for multidimensional chemical analysis. The proposed peak detection technique is based on Continuous Wavelet Transform (CWT). Its distinction from other peak detection methods is that it does not require any baseline removal or smoothing algorithms and is robust to noise. It can differentiate the signal ...

  5. Eye-Safe Laser-Induced-Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) for Standoff Explosive Detection

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The rapid and selective detection of explosives is extremely important in a number of situations, including improvised explosive devices (IEDs), landmines, airport security, and related threats. A large number of detection techniques, both bulk methods and molecule-based approaches, have been applied to the sensing of explosives. The detection and identification of trace amounts of explosive mater ...

  6. Securing Network Access in Wireless Sensor Networks Supporting Industrial Control System

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Industrial control systems (ICSs) are crucial to the operation of the U.S. critical infrastructures, which are often highly interconnected and mutually dependent systems. With recent technological advances in wireless mesh networking technology, seamlessly integrating wireless sensors into existing plant infrastructures can enable wide monitoring and control applications, such as oil and gas, cold ...

  7. 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- ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Quantitative Risk Management using Bayesian Networks

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

    Since 9-11, the U.S. has been more vulnerable to diffuse threats. In response to the growing threat of terrorism's attack on CI/KR and all kinds of natural and/or manmade disasters, the U.S. government must adopt more effective risk management to remediate risks and mitigate the consequence of risks. A risk is defined as a function of the likelihood of a given threat exploiting a particular vulner ...

  10. 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 ...
