    Field Detection Technologies for Explosives

    Explosives are historically the weapons that have been most frequently used against civilians by terrorist organisations. In the past few years, the use of explosives by terrorist groups has cost the lives of more people than the combination of all other attacks, including the use of weapons of mass destruction (chemical, biological and nuclear ...

  • Combined Devices for Humanitarian Demining and Explosive Detection - Proceedings of a Technical Meeting held in Padova, 13–17 November 2006

    The IAEA’s programme on Advanced Nuclear Techniques for Detection of Landmines and Bulk Explosive Material helps Member States to apply and develop nuclear techniques for this purpose. This publication is the proceedings of a technical meeting organized to evaluate combinations of technologies most appropriate for the detection of land mines and ...

  • Access Security Screening: Challenges and Solutions

    11 papers cover weapon detection systems, explosive detection systems, and imaging X-ray ...

  • Electronic Noses and Sensors for the Detection of Explosives

    This book examines both the potential application of electronic nose technology, and the current state of development of chemical sensors for the detection of vapours from explosives, such as those used in landmines. The two fields have developed, somewhat in parallel, over the past decade and so one of the purposes of this workshop, on which the ...

  • Vapour and Trace Detection of Explosives for Anti-Terrorism Purposes

    Up to now so called ‘sniffer’ dogs are the most successful and widespread systems for the explosives detection at airports and in public areas. Dogs are able to detect explosives under various conditions. On the other hand dogs are living beings and their behavior and skills are influenced by numerous parameters (e.g. age, sex, trainer, daily ...

  • Nuclear Test Ban

    The book gives a broad presentation in laymen's language of the creation and the implementation of the treaty prohibiting nuclear test explosions (Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty: CTBT), one of the key guarantors of nuclear non-proliferation. The writers, who personally guided this work for more than 25 years, give a unique insight into the ...

  • Nuclear Tests

    The first Soviet atomic bomb test, which took place at Semipalatinsk in Kazakhstan on 29 August 1949, was the most egregious test by far in terms of collective exposures to local fallout. This volume is devoted to this first, and to further nuclear weapon test explosions in the Semipalatinsk/Altai region. It analyses the environmental and human ...

  • Detection of Explosives and Landmines Methods and Field Experiences

    The problem of reliably detecting explosives, whether in buried landmines or hidden in cars, aircraft cargo, baggage, or carried by suicide bombers, has not yet been solved. Explosive device detection technology can make a major contribution to collective, family and individual security. This book reviews the state of the art in a wide range of ...
