  Decision Sciences International Corporation (DSIC) today announced it has been awarded a $2.1 million contract by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Combating Terrorism Technical Support Office (CTTSO) to build a new type of portable-electronics scanner for threat detection.   Under the contract, DSIC will deliver an integrated prototype product to detect small amounts of explosive materials within portable electronic devices such as mobile phones and laptop computers. DSIC will leverage proprietary algorithms developed for its ground breaking, passive scanning technology, which uses naturally occurring cosmic ray muons and electrons to scan larger volumes such as trucks and maritime cargo containers.   “We are very pleased to once again have an opportunity to work with the Department of Defense through CTTSO and support its critical mission to combat terrorism at home and abroad through technical innovation,” said DSIC CEO Dr. Gene Ray. “This contract builds upon the revolutionary technology inherent in our proven Multi-Mode Passive Detection System (MMPDS) and advances our groundbreaking product suite across industries and applications, now including the scanning of portable electronics.”   The developed prototype will safely, quickly and automatically detect, identify and locate potential threats within portable electronic devices.
