Paper Abstract

Alakai Defense Systems has created a standoff explosive detection sensor called the Check Point Explosives Detection System for use at military check points. The system is designed to find trace level explosive residues from a standoff distance to thwart the transport and use of illegal homemade explosives, precursors and related contraband. Because of its standoff nature, this instrument could offer benefits to those searching for explosives, since it removes the searcher from harm's way if a detonation occurs. A short description of the instrument, improvements to the system over the past year, and a brief overview of recent testing are presented here.
