GRID: Guided Radiation Interdiction Detector – The Next Generation Backpack R/N Capability

GRID is an advanced backpack radiation detection, identification, and source localization system. The detector system is lightweight (11 lbs.), and fits in a small, inconspicuous backpack such as the Camelback MULE.

To enhance search efficiency and help operators quickly interdict a threat, innovative algorithms fuse data from several R/N sensors to generate real-time range and vector-to-source information displayed on an Android Phone.

The GRID system optimally integrates three commercially available Kromek D3S (CsI) detectors for excellent gamma detection and angular coverage. The D3S also features a non-3He sensing element used for neutron detection.

GRID enables the operator to interact with 2D maps and visualize cleared areas. For GPS-denied indoor search missions, the integrated stereoscopic camera is used for accurate tracking.

Using D3S Detectors

The GRID Backpack has three D3S gamma neutron detectors inside of the system. The D3S is a wearable, unobtrusive and hands-free detector, and continuously scans for radiation: gamma-ray and neutron (so it can detect shielded devices).

No one can see it in operation, or that you have found anything suspicious. You can go anywhere a terrorist could have gone and search areas quickly and efficiently. Unlike static or vehicle-mounted detectors, a person carrying a hidden detector is tough to avoid and detect; literally, anyone could be carrying the Guided Radiation Interdiction Detector (GRID) backpack

GRID Backpack Advantages

  • Weighing only 11 lbs. the GRID Backpack system is lightweight, wearable, and inconspicuous
  • Exceptionally low false alarm rate and stability in complex and variable radiological backgrounds, due to NORM rejection and clutter suppression
  • Sensitive, near-real time (1Hz) detection, identification, and localization via PCS-SBE algorithm
  • Guided search features to rapidly interdict a source (vector-to-source and range-to-source)
  • Intuitive and easy to use Android phone user interface (UI) with audio/visual alarms
  • Navigation and clearing, even in GPS denied environments using stereoscopic imagery
  • Clearing maps are displayed as overlays on a phone-acquired photo of a building floor-plan or a Google map satellite image. GRID allows the operator to take a picture of a 2D floor plan using the Android phone and to spatially calibrate the image for use with the indoor clearing capability.
  • Module can be removed from backpack and placed as a static node
