Neutron Emitting Mobile Explosives Sensing and Identification System

One of the greatest threats to troops in the field today are improvised explosive devices (IED’s). Most methods currently used to protect against these devices rely on mechanical or, directed energy detonation, but before either of these methods can be used, the IED must be detected and located.

Accelerator-Based Neutron Radiography

Over the previous decade, Phoenix Nuclear Labs (PNL) has developed a high yield, accelerator- based neutron radiography system capable of providing neutron-based nondestructive inspection (NDI) capabilities to the Navy without the use of a nuclear reactor.
