Title: Next Generation IED Diagnostic Imaging System (NG-IDIS)
Agency: DHS
Contract: N10PC20019
Award Amount: $99,968.00


Spectral Labs Incorporated (SLI) proposes to conduct a study and perform analysis in order to identify technologies showing promise for breakthroughs in IED imaging in order to produce a Next Generation IED Diagnostic Imaging System (NG-IDIS). A key improvement in such a system would be to obviate the need for bomb technicians to approach the target multiple times to retrieve film or imaging plates or to get the appropriate image perspective. Additionally, an advanced system must minimize time on target, maximize the operators distance from the target, and enable acquiring all the required information in a single downrange trip. To make these improvements this SLI program will research all plausible physical phenomena to select those technologies which have an opportunity to lead to viable system configurations. The most promising of those will be numerically modeled to determine which has the best potential performance characteristics. Then a top level conceptual design will enable an independent feasibility evaluation of the selected approach. Particular technical issues that need to be addressed during this process include System Configuration, the Image Acquisition Process, and Image Quality as well as specialized features such as adaptability to Robotic Platforms.
