With acts of terrorism and sabotage on the increase worldwide, the ability to detect concealed explosives becomes ever increasingly important. Explosives detection equipment will someday be required at corporate headquarters, courthouses, airports and transportation facilities, government buildings, correctional facilities, nuclear power plants, and military installations. The papers that follow were presented at a symposium on Explosives Detection for Security Applications sponsored by ASTM Committee F-12 on Security Systems and Equipment held at ASTM headquarters 11 April 1983. These papers describe the state-of-the-art techniques for bulk and vapor detection of concealed explosives.
