CABEM Works with UOL on New Software Release
Stand-off Bomb Detection (SBD) System Version 0.0.1 was released by the team of M2 Technologies, Kansas State University and CABEM earlier this summer as part of a UOL initiative lead by KSU and of M2 – an additional release date of version 0.1.1 is expected in September. The SBD device measures neutron and/or photon energies to rapidly interrogate a distant “target” in a matter of seconds to determine whether the object contains conventional explosives. The system is managed via a Graphical User Interface (GUI) and control software controlling the integrated equipment and sensors while displaying relevant information for three classes of users. Version 0.0.1 refined the remote capabilities of a number of this system’s features; the up and coming release of Version 0.1.1 will include algorithmic updates for gamma-photon scanning, and bug fixes based on user feedback.
