Abstract

This SBIR focuses primarily on monitoring intermodal sea containers. The proposed solid-state detector is also suitable for other deployments, including embed in cell phones for a widely dispersed distributed detection network, or in planned devices such as the Intelligent Personal Radiation Locator. Furthermore other conveyances such as passenger and cargo planes, over-the-road trailers and rail cars can also be monitored with the proposed detector. This detector takes advantage of opportunities for long-term signal detection and integration to detect even low-level or well obscured threat signals. The proposed design uniquely meets the low power
