The ever-present threat confronting international security forces by objects which could contain any type of explosive material - so called IED`s (Improvised Explosive Devices) is broadcast in graphic images in today`s media. To protect them, remote-controlled detection processes are needed which render these objects virtually visible, and thus give adequate warning of their presence by emitting an alarm signal. However, this assumes that the explosives on surfaces within the search area or indeed, explosives contained in the objects, can be identified. In this respect, various techniques were tried and tested in the past to establish their practibility.


The research project L.I.E.D. aims to identify IED`s by detecting explosives concealed within these objects, if possible, by remote means, and to this end we are researching new methods and developing possible solutions.
