Abstract
The report presents a discussion of the state-of-the-art in munitions detection. Standoff detection of surface-laid mines are not considered, nor are sea mines. Various technologies are presented and assessed vis-a-vis munition detection. Technologies have been divided into those that detect explosives directly and those that do not. Those that do not detect explosives include magnetostatics, electromagnetic induction, resistivity methods, microwave techniques, acoustics and optics. Those that detect explosives include radiofrequency resonance absorption, nuclear radiation methods, trace gas detection and biochemical detection.
