Abstract : The complex chemical nature of the current military environment complicates the ability of the Warfighter to detect an explosive threat prior to detonation. The challenge is further complicated when standoff or proximal detection is needed. In this report, results from a survey of current literature and available industry data are used to provide an assessment of laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) phenomenology for explosives detection, as well as recognize potential gaps in… CONTINUE READING
