Proposal Number: 0721086
Proposal Title: Standoff Detection of VBIED and Suicide Bomber Threats
Topic Number: H-SB07.2-001
Phase: Phase I
Topic Title: Spectroscopic Methods for Explosives Detection
Organization: Energy Research Company

Plainfield, NJ 07062-  
Abstract: Energy Research Company (ERCo) and the University of Texas, Dallas (UTD) propose the development of a novel and highly sensitive eye-safe laser-based standoff sensor technology for detecting films and residues of explosive materials. This sensor detects improvised explosive devices (IED's), car bombs, and other weapons increasingly being used around the world against civilian and military personnel and infrastructure. The technique uses ERCo's patent pending eye-safe laser technology and UDT's advanced signal processing. We have experimentally verified the technique on a wide range of explosives and surfaces. The proposed work will combine ERCo's technology with UTD's signal processing and optimize the results. The commercial applications are significant and represent a $3 billion potential market. This includes fire, law enforcement, EMS, other first responders, and federal opportunities including DHS and others.
