PITTSBURGH, November 26, 2013 — ChemImage Sensor Systems (CISS) announced Nathaniel R. Gomer, Ph.D, Senior Scientist at CISS received positive responses from the spectroscopy community at the Great Scientific Exchange (SciX) 2013 in Milwaukee, WI for his presentation on the company’s work on a robotically controlled Raman system for detecting and identifying explosives.
Dr. Gomer’s presentation entitled, “Shortwave Targeted Agile Raman Robot for the Identification and Confirmation of Emplaced Explosives” was given during the “DoD Forensic Needs and Applications” session and provided an overview of the project and the capabilities of the system’s technology in the detection of improvised explosive devices.
“It was a great opportunity to present the work we have completed to the spectroscopy community at SciX 2013 and receive their input and feedback on the project”, said Gomer.
“The STARR project enabled CISS to integrate its standoff explosive detection technology onto an unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) providing for safe separation between the soldier operator and the explosive threat,” said Matthew P. Nelson, Ph.D., Chief Scientist and Business Director at CISS. “Our primary goal is to continue to develop technologies that keep end users at safe distances while detecting potential threats.”
The SciX conference is presented by the Federation of Analytical Chemistry and Spectroscopy Societies (FACSS) which was founded in 1973 as a Federation of member organizations for the exchange of ideas at the forefront of disseminating technical information dealing with the applied, pure, or natural sciences.
