Our Products

Radiation Sensors

The PERM gamma detector provides gamma detection and isotope identification. It uses a low-cost 2 in x 4 in x 16 in NaI(Tl) crystal, enclosed in an IP67-rated housing, as the scintillation material. The crystal/photomultiplier tube (PMT) package is a commercial item supplied by St. Gobain. The design associated with the packaging of the COTS scintillator is driven by the need to provide medium-resolution (~8%) gamma spectra (30 – 3000 keV) with accurate and stable energy calibration.
PERM-Mobile is an advanced radiation detection and source identification system that can be easily configured for mobile and static applications. The system provides fast vehicle integration with power provided through the 12V vehicle supply. The PERM-Mobile uses a local WiFi network and a tablet which provides the user interface and processes the detection algorithms.
MURS is an advanced mobile radiation detection, identification and source localization system coupled with day/night contextual imaging and inertial navigation subsystems discreetly installed in a 4x4 vehicle. The standard MURS includes a Chevrolet Tahoe SSV and is complete with a low-profile law enforcement package.

Laser Based Sensors

SHSCAD
Wide area, high areal coverage rate surface contaminant detection via LWIR reflectance spectroscopy employing eye safe broadband quantum cascade lasers (QCLs) and a high-speed spatial heterodyne spectrometer (SHS) in a handheld sensor package (~ 10,000 cm3, 10 lb).
PSI QCL-based CO sensor
QCL sensors use mid-infrared semiconductor laser sources, either intraband Quantum Cascade Lasers or Interband Cascade Lasers to enable high precision, high accuracy, and selective detection of trace gases such as greenhouse gases and chemical agents with application to a variety of commercial, industrial, defense and environmental problems.
Our pharmaceutical products target aseptic fill/finish manufacturing applications including manufacturing operations that utilize barrier isolators and lyophilization, often used to process the fastest growing segment of the pharmaceutical industry, biopharmaceuticals.
In-Line Fuel Monitor
The In-Line Fuel Monitor provides real-time measurement of water and particulate contamination levels in fuel distribution systems aboard Navy ships. Qualified for both jet fuel (JP-5) and marine diesel (F-76), the internal laser-based sensing system responds in seconds to changes in the fuel contamination levels, and provides fuel quality reports over the ship’s network to operator control workstations.
Tunable Diode Laser (TDL) Gas Sensors
Tunable Diode Laser Gas Sensors are typically in situ sensors that take advantage of robust and mature telecom components in order to offer high precision, high accuracy, and highly selective detection of trace gases with application to a variety of commercial, industrial, defense and environmental problems. PSI has also pioneered the application of TDL sensing to measurements of temperature, pressure, velocity, and mass flux.
GasScan™ is PSI’s single board platform utilized in multiple TDL sensor products. It is a complete Wavelength Modulation Spectroscopy system on a single 6” x 6” battery-powered circuit board. It includes laser control, data processing and communications yet draws less than 1 W.
LIDAR System
Lidar systems are active remote sensing systems. Typical systems collect pulsed laser energy scattered from aerosols or gas molecules to monitor atmospheric properties such as optical extinction, gas and aerosol concentrations, temperature, and winds.
CAORI
PSI introduces a new compact, multi-modal, high-resolution, adaptive- optics, retinal imager. This powerful imaging platform is designed for fast, cone-photoreceptor density mapping and precise imaging of other retinal structures (e.g., Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer, retinal vessels and capillaries, etc.).
