Abstract
Energy Research Company proposes the continued development of its proprietary technology, Laser Induced Acoustics (LIA), for standoff detection of VBIEDs and suicide bombers, and building a LIA based prototype suitable for high fidelity simulations. LIA uses a laser to interrogate a surface with the resulting acoustic signal indicating the presence of any explosive residues. In addition, we are using advanced signal processing techniques to improve the accuracy of the method.
