Abstract
After the 9-11 terrorist attacks, homeland security and anti-terrorism become a national priority and received the most and highest attention. Improved anti-terrorism technology is specially needed to prevent future terrorist attack and increase theability and accuracy of US military force in the anti-terrorism mission. An advanced portable x-ray system will greatly help the anti-terrorism mission in many ways. Current digital x-ray imaging systems are limited in application due to the unsatisfactorysensitivity, resolution, size, and cost issues. Boston Applied Technologies (BAT) proposes a revolutionary solution to overcome the hurdles current portable x-ray systems are suffering from. In our approach, a novel x-ray source with a large emissionangle would significantly reduce the distance between the x-ray source and the detector; hence make the system very compact and light in weight. The proposed portable x-ray system will provide the best resolution, will be at least 3 times weight reductionand two times cost reduction over other x-ray systems available to date. It is an ideal system not only suitable for anti-terrorism mission, but also will find great application in medical field and many other nondestructive detection areas. Success in thePhase I effort will lead to the commercial fabrication of a new generation of portable digital x-ray detecting and imaging system. This advanced system will have great applications in military, space, industrial, medical and public security.
