Abstract:
In Phase I of the Raman Bio Identification (RBI) Robot project, the team of ChemImage Corporation and Applied Perception, Inc. proved the feasibility of a Raman proximity biothreat agent detector integrated on a standard UGV. In Phase II, the team of ChemImage Corporation and API will continue the… More

TSR-SHIELD: Time & Spatially Resolved Standoff Hyperspectral Imaging Explosives LIDAR Detector

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Research Institution: UNIV. OF CENTRAL FLORIDA
Principal Investigator: Patrick J. Treado
Award Amount: $69,920.00
RI Contact: Martin Richardson
Abstract:
Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) is being successfully transitioned to field applications in both close-contact (proximity) and standoff detection modes. LIBS is attractive since it can be used to detect a wide range of chemical, biological and explosive (CBE) hazardous materials. While… More
