Abstract
All explosive devices, including IEDs, have chemical signatures that to date have been underexploited as a means of detction. Nomadics is proposing to employ chemical sensing methods to determine if suspected items contain explosive elements or not. Using the Fido ultra-trace detector as the core sensing element, Nomadics will integrate the sensor onto small robotic vehicles such as the USMC Dragon Runner. This work draws upon earlier tests that have demonstrated the ability of the Fido sensor to detect the explosives vapors given off by IEDs.
