  1. Disposable Electronic Bolt Seal

    SBC: HI-G-TEK INC.            Topic: HSB0151002

    Purpose of Work The proposed work will provide the government with a clear roadmap for the large-scale production of a small, low-cost, ISO-17712 compliant Disposable Electronic Bolt Seal (DEBS) which can electronically monitor and secure containers throughout the entire supply chain. The DEBS seal will detect and report open, close and tamper events to approved monitoring systems. DEBS unique ele ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. DNA Profiles from Single FIngerprints

    SBC: Independent Forensics of Illinois, LLC            Topic: HSB0151001

    The goal of this project is to develop a validated, commercial quality reagent kit for the reliable collection of fingerprints (i.e., latent ridge impressions) that would subsequently be used for both comparison and DNA profiling. The kit would provide all required materials, reagents, solutions and would include a detailed protocol describing the steps to (i) identify latent ridge impressions (al ...

  4. Non-Contact Device for Latent Fingerprint Capture

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: HSB0151001

    The Department of Homeland Security is seeking to develop a method for latent print work and DNA analysis from the same sample while optimizing DNA extraction protocol for fingerprints deposited on evidentiary materials used for human identification. Current DNA extraction protocols are highly successful at capturing DNA from prints. However, print lifting methods depend on physical alteration o ...

  5. Multi-Dimensional Digital Print Collection for DNA Collection from Same Sample

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: HSB0151001

    In recent years, research has shown that is possible to obtain DNA evidence from latent fingerprints; however forensic investigators need optimized techniques to ensure that both pieces of evidence are effectively preserved. Many fingerprint visualization and transfer techniques utilize enhancement additives or ultraviolet light which can compromise DNA profiling kits resulting in partial or no p ...

  6. NEXT GENERATION SCALABLE SOLID STATE THERMAL NEUTRON DETECTOR

    SBC: Solid State Detection Devices, LLC            Topic: HSB0151009

    Solid State Detection Devices LLC proposes to develop a new commercially viable next generation thermal neutron detecting system based on well established silicon integrated circuit technology. Hexagonal holes in honeycomb fashion with depth greater than 50 microns and vertical side walls will be fabricated on bulk silicon wafers of right conductivity using a combination of deep reactive ion etchi ...

  7. Stable Tl-based Semiconductor Modules for Radiation Detection

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: HSB0151009

    Thallium-based semiconductors are promising materials for detection of gamma rays, primarily due to their high Z, high electrical conductivity and optimum bandgap energy. This program focuses on two materials TlBr and Tl4I6Se. For TlBr, this program seeks to overcome long term stability issues related to presence of mobile ions. For Tl4I6Se, this program seeks to improve the crystalline and chem ...

  8. Compact Boron-Filled 3D Semiconductor Neutron Detector Module

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: HSB0151009

    A Neutron detection device is an indispensable tool for Homeland Security, defense, power and medical applications. The proliferation of weapons of mass destruction such as nuclear weapons is a serious threat in today's world. Low cost, low power, high performance, rugged and portable neutron detection devices are highly desirable for these applications. Yet, the cost and production volume of the ...

  9. Personal Neutron Detector Based on Cadmium Telluride

    SBC: LITHIUM INNOVATIONS COMPANY, LLC            Topic: HSB0151009

    Lithium Innovations will explore the fabrication of a prototype, low-cost neutron detector based on a Li-6 sensitized cadmium-telluride semiconductor detector. The detector will be demonstrated to have high sensitivity to thermal neutrons, be very robust and configured as a pager neutron detector. The effort will build on Lithium Innovations unique expertise in forming lithium sheets for sputter t ...

  10. Semiconductor Neutron Detector

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: HSB0151009

    We propose to develop a thermal neutron detection module based on LiInSe2 semiconductor material as an alternative to He-3 detectors. While recent depletion of He-3 gas is the main driving force behind development of He-3 replacements, other issues with He-3 tubes such as a pressurized vessel used and microphonic issues are also important factors in handheld and portable detectors. LiInSe2 offers ...
