Abstract:

TECHNOLOGY INTERNATIONAL INCORPORATED (TII) PROPOSES A PROGRAM TO DESIGN, TEST, AND MANUFACTURE A MINE AND EXPLOSIVES DETECTION CAPABILITY EMPLOYING X-RAYS (MINEDECX), UTILIZING MULTIPLE-ENERGY BACKSCATTER IMAGING. THE MINEDECX IS EXPECTED TO PROVIDE A PRECISE MEANS OF DETECTING BURIED ANTI-VEHICULAR AND ANTI-PERSONNEL LAND MINES. THE MAIN GOALS INCLUDE, DESIGN AND EVENTUAL FABRICATION OF A MINE DETECTOR OF HIGH EFFICIENCY, LOW MASS, HIGH RELIABILITY, AND LOW MANUFACTURING COST. HISTORICALLY, MINES AND HIDDEN EXPLOSIVE DEVICES HAVE PROVEN TO BE OF SIGNIFICANCE IN BOTH LOW AND HIGH INTENSITY CONFLICTS. MINES HAVE DESTROYED OVER TWENTY FIVE PERCENT OF THE VEHICLES IN WORLD WAR II. THAT PERCENTAGE HAS ALMOST TRIPLED (NEARLY SEVENTY PERCENT) IN VIET NAM. THIS IS IN ADDITION TO EXTENSIVE LOSS OF PERSONNEL.
