A Drill-Integrated Gamma Ray/Neutron Detector for Solar System Exploration

Active Technology Project

Project Introduction

A Drill-Integrated Gamma Ray/Neutron Detector for Solar System Exploration
Our approach includes further customizing and simplifying the current design for integration into a drill. We will reduce the number of channels, split design into front-end (scintillator and pre-amp) and back-end (digitization, processing). We will also perform a radiation-tolerance assessment and system design, and identify clear upgrade path that minimizes risk to TRL. Finally, we will fabricate/test detector in a neutron/gamma environment and subject the detector to the anticipated environment. More »
