Abstract:

A sticky bomb is a type of improvised explosive device IED placed on a motor vehicle by for example a terrorist. The bomb is typically attached with adhesive duct tape, or with magnets. This paper reports some preliminary results for a very rudimentary demonstration of two techniques for detecting the placement of a sticky bomb on a motor vehicle. There are other possible security applications for these techniques as well.
