Abstract

There is a need in the society for a fast and reliable detection of explosives because of their use in most terrorist attacks. Chemical sensors, especially fluorescent sensor, seem to fill the need in terms of cost, reliability and handling ability. The localization and detection of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) on the roadside is new issue encountered in the struggle against terrorism. A new method for detection and localization was proposed for IEDs based on magnetic signals. 3-axis fluxgate sensor array system is used for detection of the magnetic field produced around the body by the IED, as most of the IEDs have the ferromagnetic properties .Using this detected sensor data, the detection and localization of the IED can be computed by an appropriate method based on magnetic dipole model and nonlinear optimization algorithm. Sensitive and Selective detection of explosives is very important in countering terrorist attacks. High sensitivity and selectivity, combined with the ability to lower the cost of sensors using mass production, is essential in winning the war on explosives based terrorism. Nano sensors have the potential to satisfy all the requirements for a best platform for the trace detection of explosives.
