Abstract:

THE PROPOSED METHOD OF DETECTION OF CONCEALED WEAPONS IS SPECIFICALLY DIRECTED TOWARD NONMETALLIC WEAPONS (HANDGUNS AND EXPLOSIVES) CARRIED UNDER THE CLOTHING OF PEOPLE. THE METHOD IS PROPRIETARY, BUT IT CAN BE SAID HERE THAT IT IS NONCONTACTING AND NONOBTRUSIVE. THE SEARCH MAY TAKE PLACE WITH THE SUBJECT NOT BEING AWARE OF THE ACTION OF THE SENSOR. THE SENSOR IS PASSIVE AND DOES NOT MAKE USE OF ANY INCIDENT RADIATION. TARGET CLASSIFICATION IS POSSIBLE BASED ON THE MOLECULAR NATURE OF THE WEAPON, BUT WE FORSEE SPECIAL APPLICATION TO PLASTIC GUNS AND EXPLOSIVES THAT ARE NOT DETECTABLE BY METAL DETECTORS.
