    Sensor Fusion for Traffic Tracking

    Research Program - Traffic Tracking

    Customer: US Department of Homeland Security

    In October 2013, Passport received a contract from the Department of Homeland Security Domestic Nuclear Detection Office to develop and implement a system to fuse radiation detector data with data from adjunct sensors for improved detection, tracking, and interdiction of vehicular-based radiological sources.  The program will fuse gamma detection data and video data to improve interdiction capability.

    Nuclear & Radiological Imaging Platform 

    Research Program - NRIP 

    Customer: US Department of Homeland Security

    In September 2012, Passport Systems, Inc. received a contract from the Department of Homeland Security Domestic Nuclear Detection Office under the Nuclear and Radiological Imaging Platform Advanced Technology Demonstration (NRIP ATD) for the design, construction and testing of a non-intrusive cargo inspection system. Passport is conducting this ATD at The Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport), where it will utilize Passport Systems’ multi-spectral material 3D imaging (EZ-3D™), fissionable material identification (Prompt Neutrons from Photo-fission - PNPF), and materials identification (Nuclear Resonance Fluorescence - NRF) technologies.  The purpose of the cargo inspection system is to detect the presence of concealed nuclear weapons, nuclear materials and other contraband as well as automatically clear or confirm alarms while differentiating nuclear and non-nuclear contraband from all other material.

    Intelligent Radiation Sensor System (IRSS)

    Research Program - IRSS

    Customer: US Department of Homeland Security

    In September 2009, Passport Systems, Inc. received a multi-year contract from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO) under the Intelligent Radiation Sensor Systems (IRSS) Program to develop and prototype a wireless network combining commercially available radiation detection devices with its advanced nuclear and radiological data analysis, fusion and decision algorithms.  Passport Systems, Inc. was recognized by DNDO at the 2012 IEEE Symposium on Radiation Measurements and Applications (SORMA) West 2012 Conference for its superior achievements in the IRSS program.

    Shielded Nuclear Alarm Resolution (SNAR)

    Research Program - SNAR

    Customer: US Department of Homeland Security

    In October 2008 Passport Systems, Inc. received a multi-year contract to develop advanced prototype modules based on its fissionable material identification (Prompt Neutrons from Photofission - PNPF) and materials identification (Nuclear Resonance Fluorescence - NRF) technologies for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Domestic Nuclear Detection Office’s (DNDO) Advanced Technology Demonstration (ATD) for Shielded Nuclear Alarm Resolution (SNAR) Program.  Under the SNAR ATD program, Passport Systems designed and built an advanced prototype cargo scanner based on its EZ-3D™, PNPF, and NRF technologies. The purpose of the cargo scanner is to detect the presence of concealed nuclear weapons and nuclear materials as well as automatically clear or confirm alarms while differentiating shielded SNM from all other material..  Passport Systems, Inc. was recognized by the DNDO at the 2012 IEEE Symposium on Radiation Measurements and Applications (SORMA) West 2012 Conference for superior achievements in the SNAR program.

    Proof of Concept (POC) Scanner

    Research Program - POC Scanner

    Customer: US Department of Homeland Security

    In September 2007 Passport Systems, Inc. received a contract with the Domestic Nuclear Detection Office of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to build and test a proof of concept scanner to detect shielded nuclear materials and shielding material in cargo containers.  A follow on to two earlier contracts managed by DHS, the contract was an eight month program designed to demonstrate the full functionality of Passport’s material identification (Nuclear Resonance Fluorescence) technology in combination with its multi-spectral 3D imaging (EZ-3D™) technology in an integrated system.
