Decision Sciences Receives Major Contract for Nuclear and Radiological Imaging

Decision Sciences International Corporation (DSIC) has declared that it has been presented with R&D contract by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO) on behalf of an Advanced Technology Demonstration (ATD) of its Multi-Mode Passive Detection System (MMPDS).

As per the contract, DSIC will extend its help to the government testing of MMPDS focused on evaluating the system's preparation and efficiency for transition to production. The contract is believed to be worth $2.7 M.

According to DSIC President and CEO Dr. Stanton D. Sloane, MMPDS has been created to promote DNDO's intent to stop nuclear terrorism using a technology that can facilitate quick screening of cargo and passenger vehicles for shielded as well as unshielded nuclear threats at both sea and land ports. DNDO supports the association of DSIC with DHS, supporting this major, significant mission.

This contract also requires DHS' DNDO to evaluate Decision Sciences' MMPDS. Being a completely passive scanning technology, MMPDS adopts naturally found cosmic ray muons to protectively and precisely locate and identify potential threats underlying vehicles, cargo, and other conveyances.

Using the innovative technology originally invented by researchers at Los Alamos National Laboratory, the MMPDS was created with private sector investment and efficiency. MMPDS is an effective, convenient and secure automated scanning device for rapid detection of unshielded as well as heavily- shielded radiological and nuclear threats.
