• Support integration of the previously developed tools and software to provide free space calibration of the raw frequency data provided by the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) AIT
• Support development of integrated software that shall utilize a graphical user interface to allow a user to center a cursor over an area of interest on the three dimensional image to select for Identification of Explosives (IDX) analysis
• Support development of an Application Programming Interface that can receive coordinates for an area of interest on the three-dimensional image to select for IDX analysis
• Adapt the previously developed IDX software to automatically extract the real and imaginary permittivity and possibly thickness from a low loss (military or HME powder) anomaly
• Adapt the previously developed IDX software to automatically extract the real and imaginary permittivity from a high loss (commercial or liquid explosive) anomaly
• Adapt the previously developed IDX software to automatically identify a cellphone, leather wallet, boarding pass, or fold of skin that an AIT ATR would identify as an anomaly
• Support development of the software to use permittivity values measured to automatically interrogate a database of values for explosives of interest to the government and place the result on the computer screen
• Support integration of all images and extracted data into an open-architecture computer system with computational speed to provide detection and identification results in under a minute during the first base period, under 20 seconds for the spiral development of the first option period, and under 12 seconds for the spiral development of the second option period
• Support production of final report containing all measurement techniques, hardware, software, and calculations.
• Support preparation and obtainment of approval of system and programming documentation
• Support software unit testing and system testing as needed
