Next Generation Neutron Detectors for Backpack and Handheld Applications
Innovative American Technology proposes the development of a next generation neutron
detector module to support human portable backpack and handheld neutron detector systems.
The neutron detector module is based on our proven 6LiFZnS(Ag) detector modules coupled
with a miniature sensor electronics module (MSEM) and solid-state photo-multiplier to provide
a high performance neutron detectors that are compact, light-weight and have very low power
consumption. We would also propose a neutron source directional capability for both the
backpack and handheld neutron detector systems.
The proof-of–concept backpack neutron detector has been created by Innovative American
Technology and that meets or exceeds neutron efficiency, gamma rejection and environmental
requirements. IAT would like to provide four important improvements to the IAT human
portable neutron detector:
1. Next generation neutron detector electronics designed to provide low-power
consumption and small footprint.
2. Neutron detector directional indication capability that operates in a backpack
3. Neutron detector directional indication capability that operates in a handheld
4. Solid-State Photo-Multiplier applied to the 6LiFZnS(Ag) neutron detector.
