Title (EN) ENERGY SENSITIVE X-RAY SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR MATERIAL DISCRIMINATION AND OBJECT CLASSIFICATION
(FR) SYSTEME AUX RAYONS X SENSIBLE A L'ENERGIE ET PROCEDE DE DISCRIMINATION DE MATIERE ET DE CLASSIFICATION D'OBJET
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A system and method for classifying whether an object within an enclosed article is a threat. The system includes an acquisition subsystem (30) , a reconstruction subsystem (80) , an energy discrimination subsystem (90), and a classification subsystem (100). The acquisition subsystem communicates projection data to the reconstruction subsystem. The energy discrimination subsystem, which utilizes energy spectra at two distinct ranges, uses the projection data to ascertain the compositional make up of the object of interest.
(FR)L'invention concerne un système et un procédé permettant de classifier si un objet au sein d'un article emballé constitue un danger. Ce système comporte un sous-système d'acquisition (30), un sous-système de reconstruction (80), un sous-système de discrimination d'énergie (90) et un sous-système de classification (100). Ledit sous-système de communication permet de communiquer des données de projection au sous-système de reconstruction. Ledit sous-système de discrimination d'énergie utilisant des spectres d'énergie au niveau de deux portées distinctes emploie les données de projection afin de garantir la réalisation compositionnelle de l'objet d'intérêt.
