Abstract

Neva Ridge Technologies and its academic partner the University of New Hampshire, introduce an innovative application of technology originally developed for gamma ray astronomy. Under this phase 1 effort we will show the feasibility of an approach that will allow for the detection of hidden objects in buildings and of voids and tunnels underground. It will rely on naturally occurring “background” gamma radiation associated with materials that compose the objects of interest. Imaging technology borrowed from the low energy gamma ray astronomy community, together with advanced signal processing techniques, will be applied in this Phase 1 effort to provide a proof of feasibility.
