7 Origins of Fido - DARPA Dog’s Nose Program Program to detect landmines12 teams selected including MIT, Tufts, Caltech, Texas Instruments, RockwellObjective: match canine performanceICx Nomadics developed only successful sniffer systemDeveloped and demonstrated Fido technologyProven comparable to dogs in side-by-side tests
8 Chain of Events Leading to IED Deployment • IED bombers must store, transport, handle, and deploy large amounts of explosive material• At each stage there is an exploitable explosive chemical signature• STORAGE: Vapor sampling and detection using Fido provides a capability to find weapons caches where explosives are stored prior to being turned into an IED• TRANSPORTING THE EXPLOSIVES: Vehicles that transport explosives from weapons caches to a bomb builder will reek of explosives vapor while the explosive is in the vehicle, and for a good amount of time afterward due to contamination.• BOMB BUILDER: The location of the bomb builder will provide a detected explosives vapor signature, as well as his clothing and hands.• TRANSPORTING THE IED: Once built the IED must be delivered to the enemy’s target area, resulting in additional opportunities for interdiction.• CONCEALMENT: Deployed IEDs are the most challenging detection scenario for vapor detection, and might provide the least long-term benefit when compared to breaking of other chains, as the enemy’s bomber network is not necessarily compromised.• Can detect explosives secreted in homes, buildings, or underground• Can detect explosives in vehicles or vehicle that recently held explosives• Can detect explosives on persons or clothingIf detection occurs prior to IED deployment, the risk to the general population could be greatly reduced!
9 Urban Use Scenarios… Find where the bad guys live or make devices Swipe Elevator ButtonsIf positive, swipe buttons individually to find the floorThen swipe door knobs on that floor to find the door knob or knobsFor positives, get a search warrant
10 Urban Use Scenarios… Screen motorcycles Screening parked motorcycles is easier than screening people. It also eases concerns about racial profiling.
11 Urban Use Scenarios… Heightened Threat Awareness Screening Vapor space of handbags – quick and easyCell phone buttons – covertly if desiredRandom hand sampling at VIP eventsTickets at spectator eventsAnywhere you need to separate the good from the bad!
12 Effective Application of Fido Trace-level detection of explosive residues on suspected terrorists and their personal effectsSuspicious item screening (rooms, backpacks, vehicles)Covert investigation (cracks around doors and windows, items handled by suspicious individuals)Ideal for integration onto robots due to small size, low power consumption and communications capabilitiesItems that have come into contact with explosive handler can be swiped to identify presence of explosives.
13 Technology Background on Fido - AFP Amplifying Fluorescent Polymers (AFP) are the detection principle of the Fido XTAFP materials fluoresce intensely in the absence of explosives materialsUpon binding to target analytes, the fluorescence is quenched proportionally to the concentration of analyte in the sampleThe AFP is structured like Receptors wired in a series (see next slide)ExplosivesNo ExplosivesAFPs produce a dramatic reduction in their fluorescence when TNT and other nitroaromatic compounds bind to thin films of the polymers. This enables detection of TNT and related substances at levels three orders of magnitude below that of the most sensitive commercially-available laboratory instruments. The current sensor prototype can detect low femtogram masses of TNT. It is possible to detect the extremely low concentrations of explosive vapors encountered in the vicinity of landmines.The vial at left contains beads coated with the amplifying fluorescent polymer material in water containing approximately 1 ppm TNT. The vial at right contains no TNT. The quenching effect is easily seen even with the naked eye.
15 Graphic Representation of AFP The figure on the left is an animation that activates upon the first action after this slide is brought up. It is illustrating how only molecules of interest (orange ones) bind to the polymer. When the explosive molecules bind to AFP chromophores in a chain, the subsequent polymer molecules in the chain stop emitting light, resulting in a rapid decrease in overall fluorescence (quenching) for a period of time based on the number of explosive molecules present. This process is reversible, and, after a few seconds, the Fido sensing element clears itself out, begins to fluorescence again, and is ready for further use. Note that the explosive molecules do remain bound to the polymer - this is the reason that the Sensing Elements deplete after a period of time and must be changed.As the explosives molecules are drawn through the sensing element, they bind to the AFP, resulting in a decrease in fluorescence within the sensing element (known as the “quenching effect”)The quenching effect is indicated through both a visible (bar chart) and audible signal (similar to a Geiger counter’s output) to the operator. Discretion of the audible signal is possible with the use of ear buds.This process is reversible – the Fido clears down quickly after a hit and is ready for additional sampling (note that the explosive molecules do remain bound to the polymer)The orange dots represent explosive molecules that bind to the AFP, the gray dots represent air and other benign molecules continuously flowing through the sensing element
16 Important points about using AFP 1) sensitivity:AFP enables detection of certain types of explosives at levels three orders of magnitude (1,000 times) below that of the most sensitive commercially-available laboratory instruments. The current sensor prototype can detect low femtogram masses of nitro-aromatic explosives such as TNT, and pg-ng levels of other explosives such as RDX and PETN.
17 Important points about using AFP 2) selectivity:Reduced false positives as we will not alarm on farmers handling just fertilizer or people with heart medication3) speed of results:The Fido XT yields results in a matter of seconds versus longer sampling times for IMS devices (allows for higher throughput rates)4) ability to verify initial results:After receiving a “hit” the Fido XT recovers in a matter of seconds as the explosives are “flushed out” from the continuous air flow generated by the internal pump. Current IMS devices sometimes are down for 45 minutes to several hours after receiving a “hit”.5) size and portability:Unlike IMS based devices which have to be a certain size, the AFP based Fido XT is small enough to integrate with the majority of commercially available robotic systems, and also has the potential to integrate onto UAV platforms. The current payload weighs 13.5 oz, with room to decrease in size.
