A portable system and method for detecting drug materials. A portable system may comprise at least one collection lens for collecting a plurality of interacted photons, a tunable filter for filtering the photons, and a SWIR detector for generating at least one SWIR data set representative of a first location comprising an unknown sample. A processor may analyze the SWIR data set to associate the unknown material with a known drug material. A method may comprise collecting a plurality of interacted photons, filtering the interacted photons into a plurality of wavelength bands, detecting the filtered photons to generate a SWIR data set and analyzing the SWIR data set to associate an unknown material with a known drug material.


The present disclosure provides for a system and method for analyzing a sample comprising at least one unknown material. A first location may be scanned to generate a SWIR hyperspectral image. The SWIR hyperspectral image may be generated using dual polarization techniques. The SWIR hyperspectral image may be analyzed to target a second location comprising the unknown material. This second location may be further analyzed using Raman spectroscopic techniques and a Raman data set may be generated. The Raman data set may be further analyzed to associate the unknown material with a know material.

A system and method for detecting analytes using a conformal filter. A conformal filter, which may comprise a tunable filter, is configured to filter interacted photons conforming to a spectral shape correlated with an analyte of interest. Conformal filter configurations may he selected by consulting a modified look-up table associated with an analyte. An iterative methodology may be used to calibrate a conformal design for an analyte of interest, refine a previous conformal filter design for an analyte of interest, and/or generate a new conformal filter design for an analyte of interest.

A method for detecting unknown materials, such as drugs. A first location is surveyed using a video capture device to identify a second location comprising an unknown material. The second location is interrogated using SWIR spectroscopic and/or imaging methods to generate a SWIR hyperspectral image. The SWIR hyperspectral image is analyzed to associate the unknown material with a known drug material. A system for detecting unknown materials, such as drugs comprising a first collection lens for collecting interacted photons from a first location and a visible imaging device for generating a visible image. A second collection lens may collect a plurality of interacted photons from a second location and a tunable filter may filter the interacted photons. A spectroscopic imaging device may detect the interacted photons and generate a SWIR hyperspectral image. A processor may analyze the SWIR hypespectral image to associate an unknown material with a known material.

The present disclosure describes security screening systems and methods for identifying a suspect material in a sample. In general terms, the system and method disclosed herein provide collection optics configured to collect a first plurality of interacted photons from an illuminated sample and generating a first optical signal. The first optical signal is separated into a plurality of optical components where the plurality of optical components are filtered by a plurality of filters. Each filter of the plurality of filters is configured to filter the plurality of optical components into a passband wavelength to generate a plurality of filtered components. The plurality of filtered components are detected by one or more detectors and one or more wavelength specific spectral images are generated. A processor is configured to analyze the one or more wavelength specific spectral images in order to identify the suspect material in the sample. The systems and methods disclosed herein may find particular use in a security setting.
