Compton imaging for standoff radiation detection: M183-2/7478E-PDF

report A /

"With funding from the Department of National Defence’s (DND) Centre for Security Science, over the years from 2007 to 2012 a research team composed of scientists from Natural Resources Canada (NRCan), the National Research Council (NRC), and McGill University developed imagers to find radioactive sources and show their location overlaid on a photograph. These imagers were developed primarily for use in security/surveillance, and in consequence management. A follow-on DND-funded project called ”Compton Imaging for Standoff Radiation Detection”, governed by memoranda of understanding between DND and NRCan and between DND and NRC, has been established in order to provide information useful in determining whether the Canadian Forces should procure Compton imagers. This is Report A specified in those agreements. We provide an introduction to Compton imaging, discuss the current technology readiness level of Compton imagers in Canada, and provide a status report of work under the project to date"--Abstract, p. 1.
