Across the Homeland Security Enterprise, explosive threats are a major concern in aviation and checkpoint security. To detect traces or residues of explosives left on surfaces such as a hand or piece of luggage, DHS Components deploy explosives trace detectors (known as ETDs) as a secondary screening method. Due to the wide variety of homeland security end users and an increase in homemade explosives and nefarious tactics, new and improved ETDs are needed.
Join us for the LRBAA Today: Explosives Detection webinar on Tuesday, February 1, at 2 p.m. ET, to hear about the work currently being pursued under two Long Range Broad Agency Announcement (LRBAA) topics, including the “Small Bulk Confirmatory Capabilities Through Barriers” and “Enhanced Contact and Non-Contact Trace Explosives Sampling and Detection” topics. S&T’s Long Range Broad Agency Announcement (LRBAA) is a standing, open invitation to the scientific and technical communities to submit proposals for topics that address priority homeland security needs.
During this webinar, you’ll learn about the technologies DHS S&T is seeking to develop advanced ETD equipment to detect and identify hazardous materials contained or obscured by a non-metallic barrier (i.e. vials/bottles/packages), or those found in cargo, baggage, or personnel screening at security checkpoints and in air transport environments.
