Abstract:

In this SBIR Phase I Nomadics documented the penetration and backscatter of an underwater X-ray system. The system consists of an X-ray source water tank and a gamma ray detector capable of sensing the high-energy scattered X-rays. Using the results of these tests the model of X-ray penetration and backscatter can be verified and used to extrapolate expected performance of the final system.
