  1. Stand-off Explosives Detection by Photothermal Emission Imaging

    SBC: Bodkin Design & Engineering, LLC            Topic: HSB0112004

    TSA is seeking techniques for non-contact detection of trace explosive residue on a person's body, clothing or baggage. A TSA checkpoint screens about 200 passengers per hour. TSA is already deploying millimeter wave and backscatter x-ray Advanced Imaging Technologies (AITs) to enable Transportation Security Officers to detect non-metallic anomalies beneath clothing. TSA is now seeking a trace exp ...

  2. Dynamic Information Environment for Coordinated

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: HSB0112006

    Emergency responders are tasked with maintaining awareness of a massive number of disparate pieces of information, garnered through a broad variety of electronic sources (e.g., emergency alerting systems, semi-structured RSS feeds, computer-aided dispatch). To be effective, these responders need support tools that allow them to automatically visualize and track the location, type, and status of em ...

  3. Generation of Bivalent Aptamers with High Affinity and Selectivity of Viruses and Bacteria from Environmental Samples

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: HSB091003

    Better methodologies for the rapid detection of pathogenic bacteria and viruses are needed. A particular problem with current antibody-based assays is cross-reactivity with similar, but harmless, species. Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc. proposes developing nucleic acid-based affinity reagents (aptamers) against botulinum neurotoxin, as well as against a model pathogenic virus (VSV) and spore ...

  4. Customized STR Typing System for Kinship Analysis

    SBC: NetBio, Inc.            Topic: HSB091001

    First described in the early 1990`s, short tandem repeat (STR) analysis is the gold standard of human identification. With a false identification rate as low as one in hundreds of trillions, STR analysis is a powerful tool for determining human identification objectively. The goal of this work is to improve the ability to evaluate kinship based on STR analyses. By creating an STR assay system tha ...

  5. Eu2 Doped CsBaI3 and CsBa2I5 Scintillators

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: SBIR111003

    The proliferation of weapons of mass destruction such as nuclear missiles and “dirty bombs” is a serious threat in the world today. Preventing the spread of these nuclear weapons has reached a state of heightened urgency in recent years, more so since the events on September 11, 2001 and its aftermath. Gamma-ray spectrometers are an important tool in monitoring the proliferation of nuclear wea ...

  7. Low-Stress Growth of Cesium Barium Iodide Scintillators

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: SBIR111003

    The recent discovery of Eu activated alkali-earth halide scintillators promises to revolutionize remote detection and identification of radioisotopes. This proposal addresses the development of methods for production of large-volume, high-quality CsBa2I5scintillators. High-quality, low-cost scintillators for detection of gamma-rays are needed for monitoring of nuclear non-proliferation and homelan ...

  8. Novel Very Large Scintillator Crystal Growth Method

    SBC: Nanotrons            Topic: SBIR111003

    Scintillators have been used in radiation detection applications including medical imaging, oil well drilling, and high energy physics experiments. The new security need for scintillators has changed the market dynamics from specialty niche to volume production. In this program, Nanotrons proposes a manufacturing method that potentially produces scintillator of very large size and high crystal qua ...

  9. Hand-held Neutron Detectors

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: SBIR111001

    Proliferation of the weapons of mass destruction such as nuclear weapons is a serious threat and prevention of their spread has reached a state of heightened urgency in recent years. One of the ways to passively determine the presence of nuclear weapons is to detect and identify characteristic signatures of highly enriched uranium and weapons grade plutonium. Neutrons and gamma rays are two signat ...

  10. AS&E Phase II Aircraft Scanner

    SBC: American Science and Engineering, Inc.            Topic: HSB092001

    In this Phase II effort, American Science & Engineering, Inc. (AS&E) will design, fabricate, test and deliver a mobile X-ray Backscatter one-sided imaging system suitable for examining general aviation aircraft for the presence of weapons, contraband or other proscribed items. The system employs a high resolution X-ray Backscatter imaging module mounted on an omni-directional host platform, provi ...
