Abstract
Standoff detecctors are required to detect IEDs. These detectors are needed to save the lives of american soldiers. QuantaSpec has developed patent pending methods for long-range, sensitive, and selective standoff detection of explosives. These methods have already demonstrated sensitive remote detection of explosive vapors under previous efforts. QuantaSpec's multidisciplinary team will demonstrate additional explosive detection capabilities and improvements.
