Abstract:

Reliable, robust, and portable technologies are needed for the rapid identification and detection of chemical, biological, and explosive CBE materials. A key to addressing the persistent threat to U.S. troops in the current war on terror is the rapid detection and identification of the precursor materials used in development of improvised explosive devices, homemade explosives, and bio-warfare agents. However, a universal methodology for detection and prevention of CBE materials in the use of these devices has proven difficult. Herein, we discuss our efforts towards the development of a modular, robust, inexpensive, pervasive, archival, and compact platform android based smart phone enabling the rapid detection of these materials.
