ALL LIQUIDS HAVE A UNIQUE ACOUSTIC FLUID IDENTITY (FluID™)

EVOLUTION OF ACOUSTIC

TECHNOLOGY

THE PROBLEM:

Tens of Thousands Sealed Artillery Shells Containing Chemical Weapons.

HEADED BY THE US STATE DEPT. TO INSPECT RUSSIAN MILITARY ARSENAL

THE OBJECTIVE:

Create an effective non-invasive, non-destructive method for identifying chemical agents inside containers rapidly and reliably.

PRIOR TO                           

 2004

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory identified distinguishing acoustic metrics detectable in sealed containers -- the basis for Perceptive Sensor Technologies Patented and Patent-Pending Acoustic Technology.

KNOWN ACOUSTIC METRICS

KEY MEASUREMENTS:

Acoustic Velocity

Acoustic Impedance (attenuation)

Acoustic Resonance Features

Acoustic Absorption Spectra

Material Density

 2007

APPLIED ACOUSTIC METRICS

Early adaptations.

 A DATABASE OF CHEMICALS

Machines were calibrated to detect liquids matching specific criteria with positive/negative or 'present' or 'not present' response.  

All Liquids Have a Unique Fluid Identity.

The biometrics of hazardous or harmful bioweapon materials and those in petrochemicals or even shampoo are identifiable using Acoustic Fingerprinting™. This process makes distinguishing between 87 Octane Gasoline and 92 Octane with discerning accuracy (99.96%+) possible in a matter of milliseconds.

Accurate Resident Database Provides Extensive Liquid Matching

Portable, Lightweight, and Rugged Design for the Elements

EARLY APPLICATION

PORTABLE-ID™: MODEL PASS 600™

Portable Acoustic Signature Systems (PASS)

Unit and hardwired wand (sensor mic) with trigger action.

WiFi Enabled, Cellular or Satellite Commnication (or any combination thereof).

Small Footprint (4"d Laptop-size), Microphone Wand w/ Stand (approx. 6"h).

Portable units collect data, determine content / status and transmit readings.

SoundData™ is collected and decifered. Database is updated and sequenced.

ADAPTATION

PORTABILITY to PERMANENT IMPLEMENTATION

Development of key sensors to measure depths between two points in both large storage tanks or pipelines implemented at various stages of custodial transfer gave semi-permanent, redundant and real-time data without the need for manual involvement. These advancements include units effective in monitoring refineries / petrochemical plants, tankers, and trucks thus providing hands-free, test-free critical data, real-time.
