Abstract
Aerodyne Research, Inc. proposes to design, build and test a non-contact sampling wand intended for the detection of energetic materials which will involve collection and subsequent concentration of particles, and real-time coupling to a hand-held ion mobility spectrometer-based detector. This non-contact sampler will be easily retrofitted to commercially available detectors and require minimal electric power as well. We estimate that its use will increase detection sensitivities of such devices by at least an order of magnitude. Furthermore, its simplicity should help reduce the incidence of sample failure.
