Abstract
ChemImage Corp. and ITT are proposing to demonstrate the feasibility of detecting and identifying chemical and biological threats using UV Raman Chemical Imaging techniques from a stand-off distance of 1 meter and against complex stationary backgroundmaterials such as asphalt and soil as commonly encountered by fielded military and homeland security personnel. The use of a standoff surface detection unit has huge potential in both military and homeland security applications. A variety of applicationsand users exist for a biological standoff surface contamination detection and identification capability beyond the military. Industries such as transportation, for baggage screening, the US Postal Services for mail screening, the Coast Guard for boardercontrol, and the Environmental Protection.
