SBC: MICHIGAN AEROSPACE CORP Topic: 1
Michigan Aerospace Corporation proposes to develop an inexpensive system to sense nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions from agricultural fields using laser-based sensors mounted on drones. These sensors include an optical absorption cell, a wind sensor, and a camera for plant health and ground assessment. The measurements from these sensors will be combined and processed with artificial-intelligence-enab ...SBIR Phase I 2020 Department of EnergyARPA-E
SBC: AEROSOL DYNAMICS INC Topic: N/A
Detection systems for aeropathogens require the concentration of airborne particles from large volumes of air into small volumes of liquid. This proposal addresses this need through droplet encapsulation of airborne particles, with subsequent capture into a microliter-sized collection reservoir. Droplet encapsulation is accomplished through our company¿s proven, patented growth tube technology. T ...SBIR Phase I 2006 Department of Homeland Security
SBC: Vaporsens, Inc. Topic: HSB0181001
Drug overdose is now the leading cause of death for Americans under 50 years old, with fentanyl claiming more lives than any other drug.Alarmingly, the problem is increasing, with fentanyl overdoses claiming nearly twice as many lives in 2016 compared to 2015.In addition to users, first responders are at risk for coming into contact with fentanyl as they perform their duties.Fentanyl is extremely ...SBIR Phase I 2018 Department of Homeland Security
SBC: Physical Optics Corporation Topic: HSB0181003
To address the DHS need to rapidly detect radio interference of critical radio frequency (RF) communications channels utilized by first responders, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Miniature Intelligent Spectral Analyzer (MISCAN) device based on a combination of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) electronic components in a custom software-defined configuration along with in ...SBIR Phase I 2018 Department of Homeland Security
SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: HSB0181002
A majority of U.S. adults own a cell phone and are inclined to use it in emergency situations to call for assistance. Unfortunately, in areas where the density of cell towers is low, such as in rural and off-shore environments, the ability of the wireless network to geolocate the origin of the wireless signal is poor to non-existent. Under the proposed effort, Toyon Research Corporation will devel ...SBIR Phase I 2018 Department of Homeland Security
SBC: Physical Optics Corporation Topic: HSB0181002
To address the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) need for a cell phone location finder for maritime and remote search and rescue (SAR), Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new REmote Phone Locator for Improved Emergency Rescue (REPLIER). REPLIER leverages novel techniques recently developed at POC to extend the range of cellular communications and integrate commercial cellu ...SBIR Phase I 2018 Department of Homeland Security
SBC: Niowave, Inc. Topic: HSB0141007
In the post 9/11 security environment, rapid cargo inspection 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 photo-fission, delayed neutron & gamma measurements, p ...SBIR Phase I 2014 Department of Homeland Security
SBC: INTELLIGENT FIBER OPTIC SYSTEMS CORP Topic: HSB071002
Fires in tunnels, whether resulting from collisions, bombs, or other sources, are extremely hazardous. Authorities need immediate notification of the problem to provide quick assistance to passengers and prevent additional collisions. One solution is to place temperature sensors along the length of the tunnel; these sensors can be used to detect blasts and issue an alarm. Placing sensors in a tunn ...SBIR Phase I 2007 Department of Homeland Security
SBC: QUANTUM VENTURA INC Topic: DHS211009
Improving detection of illegal threats and materials passing through US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Ports of Entry (POE) is sought by the DHS S&T. Concerns for both materials and persons at these border crossings limit the type of inspection tools that can be used safely. Although current systems are capable of screening vehicles and large freight containers and conveyances, maintaining an ...SBIR Phase I 2021 Department of Homeland Security
SBC: ADVANCED FUEL RESEARCH, INC. Topic: N/A
Radiological sources are in everyday use in numerous industries. Illicit removal of this material from storage could result in construction of a Radiological Dispersal Device or Dirty Bomb. A pervasive means of securing radiological materials and identifying breaches in security is required. Ideally, existing passive surveillance technology would be used, thereby enabling rapid and cost effective ...SBIR Phase I 2007 Department of Homeland Security
