Detection of Explosives and Weapons in Transit Systems

<font size="2"><font size="2"><p align="justify">This project will develop and test a small-size, low-cost, extremely low-power sensor-locator for detection of explosives and weapons in rail transit systems. Transportation systems pose a potential target for terrorist threats, such as improvised explosive devices (IEDs). The tragic attacks on the transit systems of Madrid, Spain, in 2004; London, England, in 2005; and Mumbai, India, in 2006 are reminders of this. </p><p><font size="1"></font></p><em><font face="Caslon 224 Book,Caslon 224 Book" size="1"><p><strong></strong></p></font></em></font></font>
