  1. Dual Plane 3D Compton Scattering Imager with Pixelated CZT Detectors for 1-10MeV Gamma Ray

    SBC: H3D            Topic: None

    Phase I has proven that the current setup achieves better than 8mm spatial resolution for 2.2MeV prompt gammas. However, 1mm spatial resolution presents a significant challenge for the current setup due in part to limited timing resolution and count rate. A new analog ASIC will be developed to replace the current analog ASIC that will have better timing resolution and deliver higher count rates. I ...

  2. Decision Support Toolkits for Sytem of Systems Level Risk Modeling

    SBC: MICHIGAN ENGINEERING SERVICES LLC            Topic: 19OATS002

    DHS is preserving the safety and the security of America by preventing, foiling, and defeating attacks from a variety of adversaries. The increasing threats (both in terms of numbers and in terms of abilities) must be addressed successfully while facing an austere budget environment. In order to be able to "do more with less" having a capability for optimizing the resources and the assets which ar ...

  3. Advanced Instrumentation for Non-Nulling Stack Velocity Testing

    SBC: AIRFLOW SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: None

    Industrial facilities, manufacturing plants, and electric power plants that burn fossil fuels exhaust the combustion products to atmosphere through their smokestacks. Stack pollutant emissions are quantified using manual testing methods developed in the 1960s, which are prone to error if non-axial flow exists in a stack.Recently, NIST has been working on an improved technique of performing 3D flow ...

  4. Development of a Neutron-based Nondestructive Test Method for Concrete Petrography and Chemical Analysis

    SBC: TOURNEY CONSULTING GROUP, LLC            Topic: None

    To evaluate the technical feasibility of prompt gamma neutron activation (PGAA) as an alternative to a set of standard destructive tests of concrete petrography including aggregate type, water/cement ratio, aggregate/binder ratio, density, chloride content and chloride bulk diffusion constant; and to determine the specifications for the design of a dedicated commercial laboratory-based PGAA facili ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
