Abstract:

The ReSINE(TM) concept, for Remote Stand-off Impulse Neutron Examination, proposed by ER2S, Inc., is a unique application of three fairly mature technologies providing a compact mobile system for detecting 10 kg of hidden explosives at distances up to 100 m. First, it is based on the Short Pulse, High Intensity Neutron eXamination (SPHINXr) technology, which is a demonstrated new methodology for bulk explosive detection using a single high intensity neutron pulse and large area gamma detector. Second, it uses a low cost blast-resistant remote neutron source moving downstream to interrogate target areas. Third, it provides for a large area gamma detector sensor, out of harm's way on a mobile platform such as a HMMWV or covert panel truck, based on characteristic signature recognition analysis method, eliminating the problem of gamma pulse pile-up when attempting pulse counting under high activation rates. This IED detection application will be evaluated against a developed Laden Vehicle Taxonomy, the specifications defined using Monte Carlo code analysis for range and cluttered environments, and validated by experiments on existing SPHINXr Facility. Following the Phase I concept feasibility demonstration, a ReSINE(TM) prototype will be built and field-tested for the detection of 10 kg of explosives over 30 meters.
