Abstract:

Innovative American Technology proposes the development of a next generation neutron detector module to support human portable backpack and handheld neutron detector systems. The neutron detector module is based on our proven 6LiFZnS(Ag) detector modules coupled with a miniature sensor electronics module (MSEM) and solid-state photo-multiplier to provide a high performance neutron detectors that are compact, light-weight and have very low power consumption. We would also propose a neutron source directional capability for both the backpack and handheld neutron detector systems. The proof-of–concept backpack neutron detector has been created by Innovative American Technology and that meets or exceeds neutron efficiency, gamma rejection and environmental requirements. IAT would like to provide four important improvements to the IAT human portable neutron detector: 1. Next generation neutron detector electronics designed to provide low-power consumption and small footprint. 2. Neutron detector directional indication capability that operates in a backpack configuration. 3. Neutron detector directional indication capability that operates in a handheld configuration. 4. Solid-State Photo-Multiplier applied to the 6LiFZnS(Ag) neutron detector. ___________________________________ Legend required by page 27 of SBIR Solicitation: For any purpose other than to evaluate the proposal, this data except proposal cover sheet shall not be disclosed outside the Government and shall not be duplicated, used, or disclosed in whole or in part, provided that if a contract is awarded to the Offeror as a result of or in connection with the submission of this data, the Government shall have the right to duplicate, use or disclose the data to the extent provided in the funding agreement.
