Abstract:

The Navy has the ongoing problem of ordnance being loaded with simulants for various requirements including practice items being difficult to differentiate from explosive-filled ordnance. In addition some practice bombs contain energetic marker materials. Ideally, one portable instrument for all differentiation problems would be chosen if available. The current survey is to determine the status of explosives detection instruments and possibly viable concepts for such detection for Navy ordnance, much of which is sealed. This plase II covers nonvapor detection.
