    Abstract

    A preliminary list of explosives vapor detection system user requirements is prescribed for three basic applications: (1) Processing—item and personnel examination at a processing station; (2) searching—area search and examination by portable, semiportable, and stationary systems; and (3) monitoring—enclosure atmosphere monitoring for explosive vapors. The user requirements common in relative importance to each application are examination or processing rate, maximum allowable false- and missed-alarm probability, and operator training level. For specific applications, the more important requirements are those related to weight, size, and power for area search, and unattended operation for enclosure monitoring applications. The user requirements are essential in establishing the detection system performance specifications, engineering design goals, and in effective design trade-off management.
