Explosive Detection – Beyond the Gateway

Portable, hand-held explosive detectors are extending security measures in areas beyond the ‘sterile zones’ defined by rigid gateways and inspection lines, enabling the routine inspection of employees, suppliers and cargo over large operational areas such as airports, container farms, industrial facilities and highways. Unveiled this week at Milipol 2015, Israel's explosive detection specialist, Laser Detect Systems, outlines how these new sensors, deployed to roadblocks and patrols, can cast an intelligence network able to track the ‘evolution of bombs’ and disrupt the stockpiling of precursory materials, thus preventing their transformation into devastating car bombs.

Refined SAR Imagery Yields new Wide-Area C-IED Surveillance Capability

A new technique that can remotely locate suspected IED sites over a wide area was developed by U.S. Navy scientists at the Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD). The technique employs airborne polarimetric Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), processing multiple polarization analysis at the pixel level, thus providing detailed information from SAR imagery obtained through airborne or satellite surveillance.
