Title: Standoff Explosive Raman AIT Upgrade Module
Agency: DHS
Contract: D12PC00494
Award Amount: $1,049,821.00
 

Abstract:

Alakai proposes to develop a Standoff Explosive Raman AIT Upgrade Module (SERAUM) which utilizes, Eye-safe, deep UV Raman scanning/imager to detect explosives and their precursors, for short standoff trace explosive detection. This system is designed for integration into DHS's Advanced Imaging Technology (AIT) systems to provide a chemical signature of explosives thereby improving the screening effectiveness of personnel and baggage. Alakai is a leader in Standoff UV Raman for DoD applications, as evidenced by being the first known company to undergo an Army technical, operational and human factors evaluation of their standoff checkpoint explosive detection system, along with a safety release for use by soldiers. Alakai can leverage its existing UV Raman capability (proven hardware performance, existing UV Raman library and detection algorithm) to customize a completely eye-safe UV Raman system for TSA screening applications. In Phase I Alakai demonstrated standoff detection of finger print quantities of 10 different explosives and Homemade Explosives (HMEs) at 25cm range and a subset of these compounds at 50cm range. The Phase II project will integrate the UV Raman scanning technology into an L-3 ProVision(R) AIT for further demonstration of the combined scanning technology.
