Abstract:

LIBS Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy and Raman Spectroscopy address all five threats CBRNE for security and force protection applications. Military and civilian First Responders could utilize LIBS for CB, explosive hazards, suspicious powder, and hazardous spill analysis. Industrial applications include hazardous materials, quality control and process monitoring. Importantly, LIBS can identify innocuous materials on-site and in real-time saving time and money in response to hazardous material spills. A3 Technologies, LLC established LIBS based sensing as a commercial technology four prototype LIBS based devices laboratory, Pelicase. hand-held and stand-off were developed and evaluated againat 1st responder securities applications, forensic and commercial applications.
