Why a Robotic Scanner

From conflict zones to airports to sporting events, bombs pose dangers for innocent civilians as well as the bomb technicians who regularly risk their lives to investigate suspicious objects and render the devices safe. Technology solutions can help first responders to see hidden dangers.

DHS SealTo this end, the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate’s First Responders Group (FRG) is developing the SIS MXR to be a responder’s eyes. It quickly and accurately scans packages and bags for leave-behind improvised explosive devices (LBIED) while keeping responders out of harm’s way.

Mounted on a Robot will achieve the unique ability to:

  • Scan packages left behind on sidewalks or in buildings
  • Scan a suspicious bag without moving it (avoiding triggered explosions)
  • Be operated remotely
  • Be rapidly deployable

Utilizing SIS’s revolutionary technology:

  • ultra miniaturization of x-ray detection electronics
  • custom designed electronics chips
  • ultra low power
  • multi-angle scanner with 3D features
