Paper Abstract

Current explosive material detection techniques are based solely on shape recognition, thus the explosive substances can easily be concealed and escape detection. Luggage detection/inspection system modifications are needed to allow for the chemical composition analysis of the luggage content. We report the design of a detection/inspection system which is based on both tomography and spectroscopy for the detection and measurement of Chlorine, Oxygen, Nitrogen and Carbon (CLONC-TOMOSCOP). Spectroscopy is used to determine exactly any explosive composition of CLONC species in the luggage content, while tomography combined with spectroscopy provides a unique detection capability in which explosive materials are both localized and detected.
