Paper Abstract

The paper presents the results of studying the possibility of remote detection of explosive vapors in the atmosphere on the basis of the LIDAR principle with the use of the laser fragmentation/laser-induced fluorescence approach. A project of the mobile automated scanning high-performance UV LIDAR for remote detection of explosives is presented. Experimental data on the detection of vapors of trinitrotoluene (TNT) and mixture of hexogen (RDX) and TNT (Composition B) at a distance of 13 m are obtained. The sensitivity of the LIDAR detector of explosive vapors is estimated. For TNT vapors, the sensitivity limit of the LIDAR detector is estimated as 1×10-12 g/cm3 at the probability of detection of P= 97%.
