About the company
Decision Sciences is a technology company with headquarters and an R&D center in California and an office in Virginia that brings together cutting edge science, hardware and software development, systems integration and manufacturing to improve the safety and security of the global community.
Based on revolutionary and disruptive technology originally invented by physicists at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, the Multi-Mode Passive Detection System (MMPDS) was then developed with considerable private sector investment and expertise.
The MMPDS is a totally passive, safe, effective and automated scanning system for quickly detecting, locating and identifying unshielded to heavily shielded radiological and nuclear threats, explosives and other contraband including weapons, alcohol, cigarettes/tobacco, drugs/narcotics, precious metals, smuggled humans and numerous other items of interest and anomalies.
Moreover, the MMPDS can uniquely safeguard the integrity of the global supply chain, expedite the flow of commerce, fortify trade resiliency and satisfy the 100% scanning requirement recommended by the U.S. 9/11 Commission and later enacted into law by the U.S. Congress.
The core technology inherent in MMPDS also has wide ranging applications beyond the security arena including the medical, mining and energy industries and can facilitate the efficient collection and aggregation of significant amounts of previously unavailable data.
Harnessing the natural cosmic ray interaction in the earth’s upper atmosphere, which produces muons, MMPDS determines the trajectory of these high velocity particles, and measures the amount of their deflection as they pass through material. How much they are deflected determines what type of material.
Muons penetrate the densest of materials. A 3-D image is then created, enabling precise location of threat objects.
MMPDS is also a very sensitive gamma radiation detector. It can clear a typical 40-foot shipping container in approximately 90 seconds, on average, providing accurate and safe scanning while facilitating the flow of commerce. False alarms are extremely low.
The MMPDS technology produces no ionizing radiation, meaning it is completely safe for people, animals, plants and food.
The MMPDS modular construction enables the system to be scaled up or down to scan any type of vehicle, rail cars and cargo containers.
