Abstract
Not Available Millivision LLC proposes to develop a low cost, portable, passive millimeter wave device for concealed object detection. The device will be hand-held and will provide the operator with a view of objects, independent of their composition, concealed under or behind a variety of obscuring materials. The device will be operated by scanning the area of interest, much in the same way as a flashlight is used to examine a darkened area. The Phase I effort will concentrate on determining the feasibility, performance, and configuration of the system. The effort will include an analysis of approaches that provide an acceptable field of view, frame rate, and signal to noise ratio, while keeping the system light and small enough to be hand-held and inexpensive enough to be appealing to a wide range of markets. This analysis will be supported by software simulation of specific parts of the system behavior, to provide a rapid and accurate appreciation of the impact of the tradeoffs we consider. The Phase I effort will culminate in the production of a system design and a report on expected system performance, including an estimate of production costs. Based upon the design, effort under the Phase I Option will initiate the construction of the sensor sub-system of the device, which will allow for early experimental validation of system performance. BENEFITS: The proposed device would be useful to military personnel and civilian police in situations requiring screening for concealed w
