Overview

Detection of Bulk Explosives: Advanced Techniques against Terrorism contains reviews of: existing and emerging bulk explosives detection techniques; scientific and technical policy of the Federal Border Service of the Russian Federation; challenges in application and evaluation of EDS systems for aviation security; multi-sensor approach to explosives detection. There are also reports devoted to the following individual explosive detection techniques: X-ray systems in airports; neutron in, gamma out techniques; neutron and gamma backscattering; nuclear quadruple resonance, including remote NQR; sub-surface radars; microwave scanners; laser-induced burst spectroscopy (LIBS); acoustic sensors; nonlinear location (NUD); systems for localization and destruction of explosive objects. While the long term goal - 100% detection, 0% false alarms - is an "impossible" dream, the short term goal - improvement of current detection systems - is achievable in a timely and cost-effective manner. While in some scenarios the general direction of work is to reduce the inspection time, in other scenarios time will be sacrificed in favor of 100% detection probability. Strengthening ties in the scientist - developer - industry - technology user - policy maker chain is the most urgent task, if timely and adequate answers to ever-evolving terrorist threats are to be found.
