Abstract

To monitor radioactivity passing through a vehicle such as a pedestrian, a car, a train or a truck, Radiation Portal Monitors (RMP) are commonly employed. These detection systems consist of a large volume detector set close to the potential source path. An alarm is then triggered when the signal rises over a threshold initially estimated in view of the natural background signal. The approach developed in this work makes use of several detectors in a network along the source path. The correlation detection approach is elaborated to take into account the temporal periodicity of the signals taken by all distributed sensors as a whole. This new detection method is then not based only on counting statistics but also on the temporal series analysis. Therefore, a specific algorithm has been developed in our laboratory for this security application and shows a significant improvement, especially in terms of detection probability increase and false alarm reduction. This paper presents the theoretical approach and promising results obtained by simulation.
