Considerations in the vapor analysis of traditional vs. homemade explosives

2017 ISOCS/IEEE International Symposium on Olfaction and Electronic Nose (ISOEN), 2017

Vapor detection of explosives is important for non-contact detection, vaporization of collected particles, and canine detection efforts. Much research has been carried out to aid in the vapor detection of traditional explosives, such as the nitro-based explosives like trinitrotoluene (TNT) and black and smokeless powders. Many of these explosives have extremely low vapor pressures, thus related vaporous components of the ...

In this work, we present a novel method for non-invasive identification of liquids, for instance to allow for the detection of liquid explosives at airports or border controls. The approach is based on a nuclear magnetic resonance technique with an inhomogeneous magnetic field, forming estimates of the liquid's spin-spin relaxation time, T<sub>2</sub>, and diffusion constant, D, thereby allowing for a ...

  • Considerations in the vapor analysis of traditional vs. homemade explosives

    Vapor detection of explosives is important for non-contact detection, vaporization of collected particles, and canine detection efforts. Much research has been carried out to aid in the vapor detection of traditional explosives, such as the nitro-based explosives like trinitrotoluene (TNT) and black and smokeless powders. Many of these explosives have extremely low vapor pressures, thus related vaporous components of the vapor signature are used for detection by proxy. As most of these explosives are extremely stable, their vapor signatures do not change significantly with time or environment. In contrast, comparatively little research has been done on the vapor detection of homemade explosives (HMEs), whose unique chemistries make vapor signature analysis a more complex problem. In this work, the vapor signatures of two types of HMEs were explored across time and environmental conditions, including ammonium nitrate-based binary explosives and organic peroxide explosive.

  • Detection and classification of liquid explosives using NMR

    In this work, we present a novel method for non-invasive identification of liquids, for instance to allow for the detection of liquid explosives at airports or border controls. The approach is based on a nuclear magnetic resonance technique with an inhomogeneous magnetic field, forming estimates of the liquid's spin-spin relaxation time, T<sub>2</sub>, and diffusion constant, D, thereby allowing for a unique classification of the liquid. The proposed detectors are evaluated using both simulated and measured data sets.

  • High-performance orthogonal sensing system and data analysis algorithm for trace explosives detection

    A hybrid sensor system is developed for trace explosives detection. The system incorporates orthogonal operational principles of its subcomponents: Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) provides high sensitivity as well as high selectivity, i.e., ultra-low detection limits simultaneously with very low false alarm rates while an ionization-based method, such as Ion Mobility Spectrometry (IMS), is used as a pre-filter to SERS, for this approach. This solution offers a significantly improved detection technology when both modes are evaluated concurrently, especially making a significant enhancement of the capability of SERS for open environment applications. This concept of operation provides a clean and controlled environment, and it enhances the operational reliability of SERS which forms the critical unit for this new detection system. The combined system outperforms the individual IMS or SERS components taken individually. This hybrid, orthogonal sensing method can be applied to other types of threat detection as well, namely, chemical and biological threats.

  • Production and characterization of nanometer explosives

    Nanometer explosives, such as RDX, HMX and CL-20, have been produced in large scale. The SEM observations show that the prepared particles are semi- spherical at the size about 60 nm having the narrow size distributions. The nanometer explosives have the same purity and crystal form with the micron- sized explosives. Compared with the micron-sized explosives, the friction sensitivity, impact sensitivity and shock sensitivity of nanometer explosives are obviously by 20%, 40% and 50% respectively. These desirable results are very encouraging and may lead to various potential applications of nanometer explosives in PBXs and CMDB propellants.

  • Stand-off Detection of Explosives Vapors and Explosives Traces Using Lasers

    The possibility of remote detection of traces of explosives using laser fragmentation/laser-induced fluorescence (LF/LIF) is studied. Experimental data on the remote visualization of traces of trinitrotoluene (TNT), hexogen (RDX), trotyl-hexogen (Comp B), octogen (HMX), and tetryl with a scanning lidar detector of traces of nitrogen-containing explosives at a distance of 5 m are presented.

  • A pressurized vessel test to measure the Minimum Burning Pressure of emulsion explosives

    It is well known that emulsion explosives locally ignited in closed vessels do not undergo sustained combustion when the pressure is lower than some threshold value. The latter is usually referred to as the Minimum Burning Pressure (MBP) of the explosive and is now being used by some manufacturers as a basis of safety for many associated manufacture, transport, and handling processes. In the present work, both an apparatus based on hot-wire ignition and an associated methodology were developed to measure the MBP of emulsion explosives. Typical formulation of emulsion explosives in China was been measured. Water content, oil phase, emulsifiers and inorganic salts are all have important influence to MBP value. It is also shown that the MBP is a very important and useful safety parameter as, if an emulsion explosive formation pressure is maintained below its MBP, accidental ignition and propagation should not be possible.

  • Detection of peroxide based explosives utilizing a lateral field excited acoustic wave sensor

    Due to extensive use of Peroxide Based Explosives (PBEs) in terrorist and insurgent activities, the need for a rapid and accurate sensor is paramount. PBEs can be prepared from items found ubiquitously such as acetone and hydrogen peroxide. Current tests to detect PBEs typically require swabbing of suspected items, which is time consuming and may not be remotely deployed. The results of such tests are qualitative in nature and false positives are common. A need exists for a sensor that can detect PBE constituents in air. The current work is investigating the utility of employing the Lateral Field Excited (LFE) acoustic wave sensor platform for PBE detection. Specifically, a polymer film that is sensitive to both acetone and hydrogen peroxide vapor has been deposited on an LFE platform. The resulting sensor has been demonstrated to be capable of identifying ppm concentrations of the PBE constituent vapors in air.

  • Capillary zone electrophoresis in the forensic analysis of explosives

    Investigations into the use of capillary zone electrophoresis with indirect UV detection for the analysis of small inorganic anions and cations of explosives relevance have been carried out. The intention is to develop a procedure for the detection and identification of ions such as chlorate, nitrate, sulphate, ammonium and potassium. Separate methods for the analysis of anions and cations are described along with estimates of the limits of detection for each method.
