Abstract:

A device for training canines on binary explosive materials, the Mixed Odor Delivery Device MODD was previously developed by the Naval Research Laboratory. Interest in the device from the law enforcement and military canine handlers led to an appeal for a second prototype and motivated the design, fabrication, and testing of a large-scale MODD LS-MODD. The LS-MODD holds a greater quantity of materials, such as those that cannot easily be divided into smaller amounts. In this work, a prototype was designed maintaining the features of the original MODD, and similar to the original MODD, the LS-MODD was evaluated by three techniques computational modeling, headspace analysis, finally, field trials with trained detection canines.
