Brochure title:
Initiative for Explosive Detection
Description:
The illicit use of explosives has become a daily event in the modern world. For terrorist organizations and insurgents, the Improvised Explosive Device (IED) has become a weapon of choice. These devices are being used to kill or harm civilians and military personnel as well as destroy vital infrastructure and assets. Because they can take different forms and be delivered to their targets in a variety of ways, these devices are proving difficult to defeat.
