  2. Portable Imager for Stand-off Detection of Person-Bourne Bulk Military and Homemade Explosives

    SBC: Polestar Technologies, Inc.            Topic: HSB0121003

    Title: Portable Imager for Stand-off Detection of Person-borne Bulk Military and Homemade Explosives. The overall goal of this SBIR proposal is to develop a portable system for stand-off detection of concealed explosives. The system will produce images positively identifying the presence of explosives and have the ability to detect and identify different types of military explosives (like TNT, C ...

  4. Remote Identification and Tracking of Non-Cooperative Subjects (REMIT-NCS)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: HSB0121005

    The ability to reliably track and recognize individuals inside a security perimeter is a critical component of next-generation distributed security systems. While state-of-the-art surveillance systems can reliably track pedestrians in sparse, static environments with minor occlusions and few moving subjects, performance degrades rapidly as scene complexity and crowd density increase. The problem b ...

  5. Objective X-ray Image Display Evaluation (OXIDE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: HSB0122003

    Transportation Security Officers (TSOs) are tasked with exploiting X-ray inspection systems to detect potential threats. To ensure efficient operation and the safety of the traveling public, TSOs must maintain a 100% probability of detection (Pd) while minimizing screening time. To achieve these objectives, X-ray inspection systems must operate in accordance with manufacturer specifications, and b ...

  6. TlBr Spectrometers with Improved Long Term Stability at Room Temperature

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 121004

    The ideal semiconductor detector for the nuclear non-proliferation application should have good energy resolution, high detection efficiency, compact size, light weight, easy portability, low power requirements and low cost. In the proposed effort, we plan to continue our development of thallium bromide (TlBr), a wide band gap semiconductor that recently has shown great promise as a gamma-ray dete ...

  7. Defect Engineering of TlBr for Room Temperature Radiation Detection

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: 121004

    TlBr is a promising gamma radiation semiconductor detector material primarily due to its high Z component and high density. TlBr detectors, however, suffer from polarization at room temperature and degrade rapidly under applied bias. Polarization is associated with ionic conductivity in this material. This proposal is focused on controlling the point, chemical, and crystalline defects in TlBr to m ...

  8. Establishment of Scientific and Industrial Base for Production of High Purity Precursor Materials for SrI2:Eu and CLYC

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: 111001

    Successful growth of novel halide scintillators SrI2:Eu and CLYC depends on a supply of highly pure precursor materials. CapeSym and SAFC have partnered to develop a thorough understanding of the factors that influence purity, and techniques to reduce these impurity levels in SrI2:Eu and CLYC precursors. Novel processing and crystal growth experiments at CapeSym, and materials characterization at ...

  9. High Efficiency TlBr Gamma-Ray Detector Module

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 121005

    The ideal semiconductor detector for nuclear monitoring should have good energy resolution, high detection efficiency, compact size, light weight, easy portability and low cost. In the proposed effort, we plan to develop a detector module for nuclear monitoring based on thallium bromide (TlBr), a wide band gap semiconductor that recently has shown great promise as a gamma-ray detector material. Tl ...

  10. Integration of Inertial Measurement Data for Improved Localization and Tracking of Radiation Sources

    SBC: Passport Systems, Inc.            Topic: 121002

    The work proposed will develop and implement commercially viable gradient detection methods and algorithms for localizing radiation sources using a single non‐directional detector. Exploitation of gradients introduced by source‐to‐detector distance – through natural or deliberate motion – and those introduced by body‐shielding will allow for enhanced localization and tracking of source ...
