For long-range detection of Special Nuclear Materials, an intense beam of mono-energetic directed gamma rays is required. In this proposal, a novel, high-energy, high peak- and average-brightness gamma-ray source based on Inverse Compton Scattering is described. Novel techniques are introduced to increase the flux of the source for active photonuclear interrogation at stand-off range. In Phase I, the components of the system will be designed to demonstrate feasibility and cost-effectiveness. This work will lay the foundation for the Phase II project, in which key components will be fabricated and tested at a collaborating laboratory.
