This book is derived from lectures at an international NATO-Russian Advanced Research Workshop on the Stand-off-Detection of concealed explosives carried by suicide-bombers or in vehicles. Ideally, explosives should be detected by harmless methods at a distance, and unknown to the persons under inspection. The aim is to devise sensing techniques that will allow the shortest developing time sufficient to start commercial production. Short time availability is a prioritizing isssue.
Proceedings of these workshops are the only possibility to gain up to date information about the detection of explosives under conditions of terrorist actions
No normal literature available about this special item
Activities in this area by Russian researchers will be of special interest
The proceedings of such workshops are a very suitable vehicle for international scientific cooperation in this applied R and D field
A good complement to the other ARW prodeedings dealing with detection of explosives
