RadMAP Contributions to Singapore Campaign featured by DHS and LBNL

Scientists with the Nuclear Science Division’s Applied Nuclear Physics Program recently supported a joint trial between the US Department of Homeland Security’s Domestic Nuclear Detection Office and Singapore’s Ministry of Home Affairs to  assess the LBNL developed Radiological Multisensor Analysis Platform (RadMAP).
The RadMAP system combines large area gamma-ray detection and imaging systems with contextual sensors including video and LIDAR.  The system is able to provide real time detection, localization, and identification of radioactive material at while moving and fuse the radiation data with data from the contextual sensors.
ANP’s Ren Cooper, Mark Bandstra, and Joey Curtis spent three weeks in Singapore supporting the technology trial which included measurements at maritime and land border ports of entry, as well as urban search scenarios.
