SBC: PHOTON SYSTEMS, INC Topic: DHS211011
This proposal addresses the need for detection of multiple biological threats in a manner that mitigates the current challenges with short analysis times without environmental interferences. This proposal will lead to a near-real-time in-situ reagentless portable sensor that enables detection and identification of multiple biological threats using deep UV laser induced native fluorescence/Raman sp ...SBIR Phase I 2021 Department of Homeland SecurityCountering Weapons of Mass Destruction
Hardening for Commercially Available Hand Held Computing and Communications Devices for First RespondersSBC: SA PHOTONICS, LLC Topic: HSB0122004
First responders operate in emergency situations that require ruggedized gear that can survive temperature, impact, and moisture. Utilizing the communication devices that first responders already carry on them has many benefits including: always on-scene, reduced cost of distributing equipment, elimination of training requirements, and many others. Ruggedizing commercial hand held computing and ...SBIR Phase I 2012 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: CREATIVE ELECTRON INC Topic: N/A
Threat materials can take many shapes and therefore this software tool must be able to perform anomaly detection instead of specific shape detection. The problem of solely relying on a database of images and a matching algorithm is that objects in the image may be shifted, rotated, or the image quality is too poor for a reliable match. Thus, this proposal focuses on the development of an anomaly r ...SBIR Phase I 2008 Department of Homeland Security
SBC: AOSENSE, INC. Topic: HSB0151008
We propose to develop a cold-atom gravity gradiometer for nonintrusive, passive detection of shielded special nuclear material (SNM) inside a human occupied vehicle. Both SNM and SNM shielding consist of high-Z materials that are substantially denser than background. Previous theoretical studies have demonstrated the efficacy of gravity tomography for identification of shielded SNM. The propose ...SBIR Phase I 2015 Department of Homeland Security
SBC: MAKEL ENGINEERING, INC. Topic: DHS221010
Makel Engineering, Inc., with subcontractors Sandia National Laboratory and American Bureau of Shipping (ABS Group)propose to develop a real-time wearable multi-threat aerosolized chemical detector (W-MACD) for use by DHS emergency response and law enforcement personnel in both land maritime operations.The wearable, multi-modal system will use a compact aerosol detector/sampler and a high sensitiv ...SBIR Phase I 2022 Department of Homeland SecurityCountering Weapons of Mass Destruction
SBC: PTSE, Inc. Topic: HSB072007
We propose to build an Intensity-Modulated Advanced X-ray Source (IMAXS) for cargo inspection systems that allows such systems to achieve 1 to 2 inches greater penetration for dense cargo (steel or equivalent) while, on average, producing the same amount, or less, radiation. Alternatively, cargo inspection systems using the new design may opt to have the same penetration as with conventional sourc ...SBIR Phase I 2007 Department of Homeland Security
SBC: YOTTA NAVIGATION CORP Topic: DHS221007
Yotta Navigation proposes to develop Mass Fatality Tracking System (MFTS) tagging device to aid first responders in locating victims during a Mass Casualty Incident (MCI). The proposed IHM-TAG leverages Yotta Navigation’s history of developing low-cost wearable devices, along with building on Yotta’s Intelligent Human Motion (IHM) software for accurate positioning in difficult GPS environments ...SBIR Phase I 2022 Department of Homeland Security
SBC: PSQUAREDT LLC Topic: HSB0121005
The implications of the proposed investigations are that radar systems already implemented for the automotive industry can be exploited, adapted and optimized for this application. These radar systems are inexpensive, of small size, employ advanced processing techniques which allow the tracking of threat targets, transmit low average power (10 milliwatts) and are proven to be people safe. We will ...SBIR Phase I 2012 Department of Homeland Security
SBC: SPECTRAL LABS INCORPORATED Topic: DHS201006
Check point screening is key to mitigating threats in aviation transport as well as in missions protecting critical infrastructure, high-value cultural institutions, and persons, in a variety of missions from civilian security to law enforcement and corrections to military.These missions are made more challenging by the range of threats presents, from metallic weapons to liquid-based explosives.It ...SBIR Phase I 2020 Department of Homeland Security
