At Decision Sciences we bring together cutting-edge science development, systems integration and manufacturing to provide advanced security and passive contraband detection systems.

A brief history on Decision Sciences

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) was developing proton radiography techniques for a variety of applications and discovered the use of Cosmic Ray Tomography for material discrimination. Decision Sciences received a perpetual, worldwide and exclusive license to the Intellectual Property (IP) from LANL and developed Discovery™ - A Multi-Mode Passive Detection System to produce 3D visualizations of materials without the use of ionizing radiation for the first time in history.

This disruptive passive scanning technology was first commercially applied in 2012 at the Hutchinson Port Holdings Terminal at the Freeport Container Port in Freeport, Bahamas for the Nuclear and Radiological Imaging Program of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Since its installation, it has analyzed many thousands of shipping containers. This program was ended when the Bahamas was heavily damaged during a Hurricane.

In August of 2014 Decision Sciences was awarded a contract by Toshiba Corporation Power System, Isogo Nuclear Engineering Center, to deliver a non-standard configuration of Discovery™ to safely image the cores of the nuclear reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant that were disabled during the March 2011 nuclear disaster.

Decision Sciences has taken this technology from the lab to the marketplace with deployments of Discovery™ around the globe for the world's maritime, land border crossing, defense and critical infrastructure industries. We are a company driven by the knowledge that our work is important and will make a difference. It is our fundamental belief that our products have the potential to save lives and secure global commerce while providing a safe working environment for operators, law enforcement, port workers and all who serve at the front lines.

We are the only company in the world providing a solution to passively detect threats to global security and trade.
