Paper Abstract

The objective of this research is to design and develop a multi-sensor capable of fast detection and of recognition optimization of the techniques for used for quantification of TATP by Pattern Recognition. In particular, the long range goal of the research is to use sensor fusion and sensor “talking” modalities to couple Stand Off detectors with Chemical Point detectors for detection of airborne chemical agents and detection of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). Vibrational spectroscopy techniques are very fast and can be used for real time detection. Good results have been obtained with various target molecular (chemical) systems such as TATP, TNT and DNT. Samples of TATP were detected and quantified in air, in solution and in solid phase on surfaces by different techniques. FTIR Spectroscopy and GS-MS were used to generate new analytical procedures for detection and analysis of the organic peroxide. These procedures were compared and taken to their limits by optimization with Chemometrics, Partial Least Squares (PLS), and Discriminant Analysis (DA).
