dc.description.abstractThis report contains a brief survey of Explosives Detection Technology,as it is applied for inspection of goods and passengers at borders, and explains the role of European legislation and the European Commission┬┐s research programs in this field. It describes the techniques of trace and bulk explosives detection that are in use, the latest techniques that are in development and the characteristics of explosives that are, or might be, used to provide a signature for exploitation in detection technology. References to academic reviews are included for those wishing to study the subject in greater depth. Some additional details are given concerning plastic and liquid explosives, which are a threat of particular current importance. The report also contains a brief account of relevant European trade, safety and security legislation, a description of recent policy initiatives and tables of related European Commission funded research projects.
