  1. Laser-Based Acoustic Emission Detection for Building Stability Assessment

    SBC: AAC International            Topic: HSB052005

    A laser-based acoustic emission (AE) detection device is proposed for structural stability assessment of buildings in order to provide warning of structural instability or pending collapse. It will help to reduce injuries and fatalities during emergency mitigation operations. This new device will take advantage of innovations in laser ultrasonics, artificial intelligence (AI) and advanced acoustic ...

  2. Handheld Multianalyte Biosensor Platform

    SBC: TIRF Technologies            Topic: HSB052001

    The goal of this project is to develop a handheld biosensor for rapid detection of bioanalytes such as proteins, peptides, nucleic acids, toxins, viruses, bacteria and other molecular targets that represent interest for the biodefense area. We propose to build a rugged device, similar to a palm computer, equipped with a disposable sensor cartridge designed for simultaneous detection of multiple ta ...

  3. SMART Hybrid Container System

    SBC: Mariner Container Corp.            Topic: HSB051006

    The global economy has brought about enormous opportunities in the areas of trade with developing nations. Nowhere is it more evident than in the East Asian basin. In 2002, over 12 million TEU containers where imported into the U.S. with over 60% originating in China/Hong Kong. In the same year, only 7 million TEU containers where exported from the U.S. to the rest of the world. What happened to t ...

  4. Miniature, Efficient, Low-Vibration Cryocooler for Gamma Ray Detectors

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    Hand-held gamma ray spectrometers are a vital tool for detecting and identifying nuclear materials to counter the threat of radiological and nuclear terrorism. The HPGe crystals in these detectors must operate at cryogenic temperatures to achieve good energy resolution. We propose to develop an innovative, miniature cryogenic cooling system that will be ideal for hand-held detectors. High efficien ...

  5. Cost-Saving Enhancements to the Swimmer Detection Sonar Network (SDSN)

    SBC: Scientific Solutions, Inc.            Topic: HSB051004

    A low cost Swimmer Detection Sonar Network (SDSN) is now being developed under an ONR Phase 2 SBIR and as a joint project between the USA and Singapore. The SDSN is a network of inexpensive sonar nodes where narrow sonar beams are formed using airbacked parabolic reflectors. The feasibility of the system has been proven through trials conducted in Singapore harbor and full development is well unde ...

  6. Analysis Tools for Detection and Diagnosis of Biological Threats

    SBC: ALPHA-GAMMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: CBD04113

    DNA microarray technology, in combination with statistical and predictive modeling tools, could be used to evaluate thousands of genes against distinct gene expression patterns induced by chemical/biological agents to provide early identification and speed therapeutic intervention. The overall objective of this Phase II effort is to leverage existing public domain resources and commercial tools t ...

  8. Model-Based Design of Test Systems for Chemical Protective Clothing

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: CBD02202

    The current methodology for testing the penetration resistance of textile materials to various chemical agents has a number of drawbacks, including significant uncertainties in the resulting data, inefficiency and expense, risk to test personnel, and limited range of test conditions. The objective of the proposed work is to apply unique computer models for textiles with accompanying experimental ...

  9. Hermetic Textile Closure Hardware System

    SBC: SIGMA K CORP            Topic: CBD04110

    Effective collective protection fabrics must have a reliable closure system. During our Phase I Work Plan, Sigma-K began developing a Hermetic Textile Closure Hardware (HATCH) system. The HATCH combines both a magnetic and geometric self locking mechanism that will provide a hermetic seal when closed. Our current Phase I successes include developing self closing samples that can provide a hermetic ...
