Abstract
This proposed project is aimed at the development and demonstration of a cost-effective and power-efficient advanced remote sensing technology able to detect home made explosives. The system will be specifically designed to detect trace amount of the out-gassed by-products of explosive materials, in particular, ammonia species using infrared absorption spectroscopic techniques. The system will be a portable unit working at a stand-off detection distance with an eye-safe laser wavelength and energy, while not triggering the explosive components themselves. The system will also be able to display the data and generate an alarm when there are suspicious explosive materials on the personnel, the loaded vehicle or the structure undergoing stand-off inspection.
