Methods of Detecting Explosives
There are many ways to detect explosives. Trained animals can use their sense of smell to discover the volatile components of the explosives and thus identify the explosives. For example, dogs can detect small explosives. This is because the olfactory cells of dogs are 48 times more human and easier to domesticate. Bees are more sensitive to explosives than dogs, but difficult to train.
Detecting explosives by smell, dogs have 48 times more sensitive olfactory receptors than humans and are easily trained. Probability of detecting explosives is 95%
Bees are even more sensitive than dogs; they detect explosives in 99% of cases. The technology and process of training bees is still in the experimental phase.
Examining objects with X-ray makes it possible to see what is inside a non-transparent package and determine what the hidden objects are by their shape and structure.
Nuclear Quadrupole Resonance (NQR) identifies the chemical composition of a hidden objects by the resonance of its nuclei to electromagnetic radiation.
Stand Alone Detectors
Our company’s nanotechnology-based electro-quantum nose detects and identifies extremely low concentrations of explosive vapors. Sensors using nanotechnology are based on fluorescence, which react with nitrogen to extinguish light.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the properties of explosive materials?
Compounds with nitro groups constitute the major explosives, most of which have very low vapor pressures, making detection difficult.
- Chemical based compounds, heat and pressure jets during chain disintegration
- When the nitro explosives explode, they are converted into a stable dinitrogen form.
- Nitro-based (NO2)-based compounds constitute important explosives, and military and high-performance explosives are mostly nitro.
- All nitro explosives contain one or more NO2 groups
- Due to the very low volatility of explosive materials, explosive materials can be absorbed and contacted by making the sensor a polymer form.

How does an explosive detector work?
- Sensor: The sensor portion has an optical layer that amplifies the detection phenomenon and a substance that reacts with the explosive substance.
- Optics: An optical layer that selectively passes only the phenomenon of reaction with explosive materials.
- Optoelectronic: Convert optical phenomena into ultra-fast electronic signals.
- Process: The test result is calculated by the processing computer.
- In/output & power: Signal input and output and power board.
