Abstract: Innovative American Technology Inc. (IAT) has developed a prototype backpack, a handheld neutron detector and a directional neutron detector based on our 6LiFZnS(Ag) neutron detector design. IAT has also developed prototype designs for a miniaturized sensor electronics module (MSEM) that integrate signal processing and power into an individual neutron detector module and the application of a solid state photomultiplier (SSPM) to enable a compact and rugged handheld neutron detector module. We would like to commercialize our backpack neutron detector using our miniature sensor electronics module to provide a low power and compact NDM for incorporation into a wide variety of backpack applications. We would also like to commercialize a compact and low power handheld neutron detector module using a solid state photomultiplier and a simplified set of electronics to provide neutron efficiency and gamma rejection that exceed the specified requirements in ANSI 42.43 and one that could be directly applied to the RadSeeker handheld detector system to demonstrate commercial viability. The estimated cost for the project is $ 477,530. The Cost Proposal is included in the Program Schedule on page 12. The proposed program is a ten-month effort for the rapid development and commercialization of the IAT Backpack and Handheld neutron detector modules. Initial efforts for both programs are currently underway.
