Abstract
In this three Phase program, ADA Technologies proposes to develop and demonstrate a novel, active trace explosives sampling system/method that will be easily adapted for use with existing commercially available explosive detection sensors. This will lead to a generic-interface sampling device that will directly couple with currently deployed trace explosives detection sensors. The active sampling system has been shown in the Phase I project to amplify the signature of trace explosives on soil by two to three orders of magnitude. In the Phase II project, ADA will combine the active sampling system with a leading trace explosive sensor to create a system that will operate at a walking pace and will detect the trace explosives and explosive related chemicals that are associated with buried landmines. The combined system will be demonstrated in operational testing at a minefield test area.
