Proposal Number: DHS SBIR-2012.1-H-SB012.1-003-0015-I
Proposal Title: Portable Imager for Stand-off Detection of Person-Bourne Bulk Military and Homemade Explosives
Topic Number: H-SB012.1-003
Phase: Phase I
Topic Title: Safe Standoff Detection of Bulk Explosives on a Person
Organization: Polestar Technologies, Inc.
Address: 220-3 Reservoir Street
Needham Heights, MA 02494-3133  
Abstract: The overall goal of this SBIR proposal is to develop a portable system for stand-off detection of concealed explosives. The system will produce images showing the presence of the explosives and have the ability to detect and identify different types of military explosives (like TNT, RDX, PETN) as well as home-made chlorate and peroxide-based explosives. The system will have the ability to scan groups of people from a stand-off distance at a data collection rate sufficient to image moving subjects. The system's power and weight will allow it to be portable so that it can be deployed at any required location. The proposed imager could be deployed at mass transit locations, national security event checkpoints, control-entry checkpoints at the entrance to buildings of national importance or at entrances to largely attended sports and entertainent venues.
