Decision Sciences, a provider of advanced security and contraband detection systems, is headquartered in Poway, CA. and has additional offices in Middleburg, VA. Decision Sciences brings together cutting-edge science, hardware and software development, systems integration and manufacturing to improve the safety and security of the global community. Based on revolutionary and disruptive technology originally invented by physicists at the U.S. Department of Energy Los Alamos National Laboratory, the Multi-Mode Passive Detection System (MMPDS) was subsequently developed with considerable private sector investment and expertise.
The MMPDS system is a completely passive, safe, effective and automated scanning system for quickly detecting, locating and identifying unshielded to heavily shielded radiological and nuclear threats and explosives. MMPDS has the ability to assist operators in finding other contraband including weapons, alcohol, cigarettes/tobacco, drugs/narcotics, precious metals, smuggled humans and numerous other items of interest and anomalies. The system can uniquely safeguard the integrity of the global supply chain, expedite the flow of commerce, fortify trade resiliency and help achieve the 100% scanning requirement recommended by the U.S. 9/11 Commission and later enacted into law by the U.S. Congress. The core technology inherent in the MMPDS system also has wide ranging applications beyond the security arena, including in the medical, mining, energy and manufacturing industries and can facilitate the efficient collection and aggregation of significant amounts of previously unavailable data.
