SCINTILLA will cover a broad range of different use cases:
Current Radiation Portal Monitors suffer from several drawbacks:
The project aims at designing and developing a prototype for a new RPM system for vehicles that will:
However the three use cases also present significant differences:
Current Radiation Portal Monitors used for scanning of people suffer from problems which are quite similar to those used for vehicles.
The project will aim at the design of a new RPM system for people that will:
The project will aim at restricting the major limitations of current portable devices used by law enforcement and designing a new portable device that will:
One of the major problems related to the response to an RDD attack (dirty bomb) is the lack of capability of first responders to immediately realise and detect the presence of radiation.
The project aims at the development of a miniaturised wearable device based on CZT or other technology for first responders for early detection of RDD with automatic threat analysis.
