Abstract:

Title: Portable Imager for Stand-off Detection of Person-borne Bulk Military and Homemade Explosives. The overall goal of this SBIR proposal is to develop a portable system for stand-off detection of concealed explosives. The system will produce images positively identifying the presence of explosives and have the ability to detect and identify different types of military explosives (like TNT, C-4, PETN) and homemade explosives such as TATP and HMTD. The system will process persons entering a federal building from a stand-off distance of 3-5m at a data collection rate sufficient to image moving subjects. The system's power and weight will allow it to be portable so that it can be deployed at any required location inside or outside the building. The proposed imager could be deployed at mass transit locations, national security event checkpoints, controlled-entry checkpoints at the entrance to buildings of national importance or at entrance to largely attended sports and entertainment venues.
