Abstract
This effort will develop technology to improve the detection and location high explosives at large distances. The system will involve the use of an advanced gamma-ray detector and a neutron source. The detector concept will be developed into two prototype systems that will serve to demonstrate the viability of the concept. These demonstrations will serve as the experimental validation of the technique and the motivation for scaling up the appropriate technologies to allow the detection of landmines, roadside bombs, and car bombs at safe distances (many tens of meters). The technologies can be manufactured.
