  1. Combined Extinction/Fluorescence Absorption Diagnostics for Sprays

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: 9030163R

    This Phase II project will continue the prototype development of a pharmaceutical spray quality audit system. The spray quality audit system will estimate the planar mass distribution, mass flux, and drop size of pharmaceutical sprays that are used in functional coating applications and inhalers. A prototype tomography system will be designed and fabricated and evaluated using various fluorophore.

  2. Large-Area, High-Uniformity Photodiodes for Infrared Trap Detectors

    SBC: Amethyst Research Incorporated            Topic: 9020168R

    methyst Research Inc. will design, fabricate and test a high uniformity, large area, low noise infrared trap-detector detector for the 1- 4.5 μm wavelength range. This state of the art detector will have a large area (e.g., 1-1.8 cm diameter active area) with a spatial variability of internal quantum efficiency of less than 0.1 % between 1 μm and 4.5 μm. In addition, the internal quantum effici ...

  3. Tamper-proof Electronic Bolt-Seal

    SBC: EVIGIA SYSTEMS INC            Topic: HSB0151002

    The proposed SBIR Phase I effort initiates the development of a low-cost tamper-proof electronic bolt seal that is easy to install, and provides electronic recording and reporting without increasing the inspection time at the customs and security checkpoints. The proposed e-seal addresses the present gap in seal protecting ALL the air and maritime containers and conveyances to extend protection b ...

  4. Proposal for Innovative Next Generation Cargo Seal

    SBC: SEALOCK SECURITY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: HSB0151002

    Cargo containers are an attractive target for criminals and other enemies of the state. Yet the most widely adopted method of securing cargo containers--the bolt seal--provides at best limited protection from tampering and illicit entry. Such seals can be defeated quickly and the evidence hidden easily, in a variety of ways. These seals also rely on slow visual inspection to confirm their presence ...

  5. Mobile High-Intensity X-Ray Source Based on a 10 MeV Superconducting Electron Linac

    SBC: Niowave, Inc.            Topic: HSB0141007

    In the post 9/11 security environment, rapid cargo inspection that does not impede the flow of commerce has become a high priority. Cargo scanning using either radiographic imaging or active interrogation for Special Nuclear Material (SNM) requires high energy and high intensity x-rays. High intensity x-ray sources are especially important for active interrogation techniques such as prompt neut ...

  6. Development HMTD-Containing Porous Materials as Non-Detonable Training Aids for Canines

    SBC: XPLOSAFE, LLC            Topic: HSB0102004

    The current practice of training canines for explosives detection utilizing actual explosives requires qualified personnel that are trained to handle explosive materials making the training both manpower-intensive and costly. The expense is further exacerbated by the need to handle and dispose of the explosive material according to local, state, and federal explosives regulations. Finally, the nat ...

  7. Usability Evaluation and Management System (USEMAN)

    SBC: Design Interactive, Inc            Topic: HSB0102005

    This proposal describes the development plan for the USEability Evaluation and Management (USEMAN) system that assists practitioners in the planning, management and execution of different types of usability evaluations by incorporating a variety of tools as well as automatable evaluation capabilities. USEMAN will be a modular and expandable multi-tool system that will integrate tools to assist usa ...

  8. Handheld Multisensor Wand for the Detection of Threat or Illicit Objects on Persons

    SBC: TeraMetrix, LLC            Topic: HSB0102008

    In this Phase I SBIR work, we propose to test the feasibility of enhancing a hand-held wand time-domain terahertz (TD-THz) based sensor with an additional suite of low cost sensor technologies to create a multi-sensor fusion based approach. The feasibility of TDTHz signature based anomaly detection has been demonstrated previously in double-blind testing performed by an independent laboratory. A k ...

  9. Next Generation Neutron Detector for 3He Replacement

    SBC: Innovative American Technology Inc.            Topic: 1012

    IAT has developed the 6LiFZnS(Ag) neutron detector for replacemen of 3He detectors providing neutron efficiency and gamma rejection comparable to 3He tube detectors. To increase neutron efficiency and reduce gamma events in our current detector, we propose the reduction of the ZnS(Ag)scintillation material to nano particles to enhance light transmission across the 6LiFZnS(Ag)layer.  To furthe ...

  10. Enhanced Charge Retention and Rate Capability in Lithium-Ion Batteries

    SBC: Fractal Systems, Inc.            Topic: HSB0101001

        Fractal Systems Inc proposes to develop lithium ion batteries with significantly improved energy density, charge retention and cycle life compared to existing Li-Ion technologies through the use of improved active materials for powering electronic equipment used in the military and commercial sectors. These cells will consist of anodes made of high surface area high capacity silicon ...
