Next Generation Neutron Detectors for Backpack and Handheld Applications
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.
