  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. CNT-Based Gas Ionizer to Replace Radioactive Sources

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: HSB061010

    The aim of this SBIR program is to develop a CNT based gas ionization source to replace radioactive 63Ni beta emitter sources used in ion detection instruments, cost effectively and without performance offsets. In Phase I, ANI worked with development partner Sionex, Inc. to establish proof of concept for basic functionality of the CNT ion source technology, demonstrating an ionic current at atmosp ...

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

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: HSB072007

    Applied Nanotech, Inc. (ANI) proposes to develop a novel field ionization technology to produce a deuterium ion (D+) current for a neutron source or gamma-ray source enabling fast switching, high repetition rate and high yields. Carbon nanotubes (CNT) have a high aspect ratio structure (they are long and narrow) that induces high electric field concentration, thus they are ideal choices for electr ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. A Non-Lethal, Non-Tethered, Inexpensive Electro-Muscular Disruption Projectile

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: HSB051005

    Recent trends in law enforcement clearly illustrate the effectiveness of the taser to debilitate even the toughest targets, without causing permanent injury or lingering aftereffects. Current electric stun technology is either hand-held or short-range and tethered to the launch platform. The law enforcement agencies would greatly benefit from a longer range (6 to 40 meters), non-tethered electric ...

  6. 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- ...

  7. Bio-Advise- A Rapid and Fully Automated Biothreat Evaluation Model

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: HSB062002

    In the event of a biological threat, first responders need tools that enable them to rapidly determine if a release is real or a hoax, which requires identifying multiple threat agents from a complex environmental sample. Current threat analysis is costly, time-consuming, and requires complex procedures with considerable expertise to execute. Lynntech s solution is BioAdvise, a simple, self-contai ...

  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. Handheld Biosensor with Multiplexed Immunoassays, Genomic DNA Testing and Orthogonal Detection Protocols for First Responder Applications

    SBC: Seahawk Biosystems Corporation            Topic: HSB052001

    Since 9/11, a distinct probability exists that terrorist will attempt another attack with chemical or biowarfare agents. Consequently, the Department of Homeland Security requires a network of sensor technologies to defend against this threat. As part of the solution for DHS, Seahawk Biosystems is developing the handheld Talon Biosensor for rapid, lowcost multiplexed detection of proteins and nucl ...

  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 ...
