Decision Sciences joins with Battelle Memorial to develop passive nuclear material detector

San Diego, CA-based Decision Sciences and Columbus, OH-based Battelle Memorial Institute, a research and deveopment organization, are teaming to pursue a possible DHS Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO) procurement opportunity

That opportunity, Decision Sciences says, relates to trans-shipment and direct-to-rail radiation detection equipment and operations, and to further develop Decision Sciences' multi-mode passive detection system, MMPDS(TM), into an operational and deployable system.

Decision and Battelle will build on work by Decision Sciences and Los Alamos National Laboratory on muon tomography and gamma ray detection applications, according to the company.

Decision Sciences and Battelle now  plan to collaborate to produce a multi-mode system capable of detecting nuclear materials across the complete threat spectrum, including shielded and unshielded nuclear materials.

"Our completely passive multi-mode system provides 'Defense in Depth' for cargo and passenger vehicle security," Robert Whalen, president and CEO of Decision Sciences, said in a statement. "We are thrilled to have the opportunity to team with a world-class institute such as Battelle to advance our homeland's security."
