Research Institution

An advanced sensor for proximal detection of contaminants on surfaces is proposed based on hyperspectral differential polarization reflection of LWIR radiation from an active IR source, blackbody lamp or wavelength agile laser and an advanced unmixing algorithm whose feasibility was demonstrated by field test data in the Phase I program. The high signal-to-noise ratios provided by the active irradiation source and the fast algorithm allow for real time detection/ identification from a moving ground vehicle. The laser source provides for scaleup to longer ranges if desired.
