Abstract:

This SLI proposal for development of a Multisensor Wand, which we designated the Multi-Function Wand (MFW), describes a carefully planned program to reach the overarching objective of providing a sound design concept that will address the vital need for a Handheld Multisensor tool to improve the checkpoint screener`s ability to quickly make a judgment call on whether someone is concealing illicit objects or threats without requiring analysis of an image. The ultimate Multi-Function Wand (MFW) Program objective is to successfully design and develop an MFW prototype suitable for independent evaluation by the Transportation Security Laboratory (TSL) by the end of a Phase II program. The MFW will integrate multiple sensing technologies in a hand held sensor that will provide an unambiguous indication of the presence of contraband. To meet this need, Spectral Labs Incorporated plans at inception to apply modern modeling methods to validate a detailed trade study to continue the sensor selection process initiated during this proposal preparation. This effort will result in a proof of concept test bed design that will provide objective data in Phase I. In parallel an innovative signal processing algorithm will be implemented in MATLAB to improve the Signal to Noise ratio.
