LocoLabs Teams with UM, H3D, and BNL on Polaris 3D CZT Gamma-Ray Imaging Spectrometer System for the Defense Threat Reduction Agency
LocoLabs was selected by the Department of Defense's Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) to team with the experts from the University of Michigan, H3D Inc., and Brookhaven National Laboratory to design and produce an advanced version of the Polaris 3D CdZnTe (CZT) gamma-ray imaging spectrometer system.
CZT technology allows for precise sensing and imaging at room temperature, a distinct advantage over other gamma-ray detectors, which typically must be cryogenically cooled to operate. The Polaris system also features an ultra-low-noise kilovolt power supply and battery-powered, carry-on sized portability.
Delivered for field trials less than 9 months after initial concept, the LocoLabs-designed units exceeded performance of the previous generation with reduced electrical noise, improved spectroscopic performance, an intuitive user interface, and a new portable mechanical design.
Managed by Alion Science and Technology Corporation, this effort was supported by DTRA01-02-D-0067.James Gardner, Vice President, Operations Manager, Program Manager DTRA Arms Control Contract at Alion Science and Technology, says:
“We added LocoLabs to the Polaris team because of their sophisticated prototyping and testing labs, reputation for high-quality rapid prototyping, and experience launching products into manufacturing. We were confident they could take this design out of the lab and make it manufacturable.”LocoLabs is proud to have been a key member of the team and to have been selected by DTRA to design and prototype a future version of Polaris, currently under development.
