AbstractAlameda Applied Sciences Corp proposes to develop a fast pulse, directed, fast neutron source to detect special nuclear materials at large stand off. Our source offers a <100ns neutron pulse with a repetition rate up to 1kHz. The Ph I program will demonstrate the critical features of the source including: a narrow neutron pulse width; a highly directed neutron beam; neutron rate scaling to the level required for 100m stand off detection of SNM. The commercial goal is to develop a replacement to existing isotropic neutron tube sources for applications that benefit from a directed high energy neutron beam.
