Project Description

Southern Innovation develops and markets world-leading pulse processing technologies for the rapid,
accurate detection and measurement of radiation. The underlying real-time signal processing challenge
relates to isolating often overlapping pulses, determining when each pulse arrived and the energy of each
pulse. Recent advances in the computational power of digital signal processing boards makes it timely to
develop innovative pulse processing algorithms based on optimal filtering of stochastic processes. These
algorithms will have widespread impact, both commercially for minerals exploration, materials analysis,
medical imaging and security screening, and scientifically for improving the performance of the syncrotron
and other equipment.
