Abstract:

Progress in explosives vapor detection is reviewed. The NAVSEA problems of detecting live explosives in sealed ordnance and differentiating them from inert materials are considered and detection techniques useful in their solution presented. Recommendations for vapor detection improvements and for development of new techniques and instrumentation are given. Portable on-the-fly measurements of vapor from bombs will not at present assure live vs. inert differentiation.
