Eirene Technologies is improving the capability of border personnel to detect, image, and prevent the transportation of nuclear threats across our borders. Gamma rays are a form of electromagnetic radiation, carrying a high amount of energy that causes the damage seen from nuclear discharge. In order for the “bad guys” to safely transport a nuclear threat, they must use proper shielding to prevent their own exposure to the gamma rays during transportation. Because gamma rays have a very high penetrating power, the only way to shield it is by the use of high density materials such as lead.
High density shielding materials themselves actually emit a unique gravitational signature, or what we like to call: a “fingerprint”. Our technological development effort focuses on the passive sensing of this “fingerprint”. This allows us to precisely identify and image the shielding materials being used to transport nuclear threats in cargo containers. We are using Optical Interferometry as a measuring tool for the identification of gravitational signatures.
"We would certainly encourage continued development of this technology. If successful, I believe it could be candidate solution for future border security and identification requirements.”

Prototype Development Progress
Goal: Calibration of our Fabry Perot Interferometer (FPI) Apparatus
We are manually generating vibrations on our sensors that represent the vibrations caused by gravitational signatures. These vibrations will result in pixel oscillations and cause a displacement measurement that will be translated into a fringe pattern (a visible image of the vibrations). This will allow us to determine the accuracy, precision, and sensitivity of our prototype.
Expected Completion: April 30th, 2020
Goal: To detect a signal due to the gravitational signatures of dense mass and determine how fast a single measurement can be generated.
