Stealth Detection of Illicit Laboratories

Using Hyperspectral Imaging

In today’s war against terrorism, improvised explosive devices, home-made explosives and drugs have become sources of growing concern. These products are being illicitly fabricated in a number of clandestine laboratories by numerous terrorist and criminal groups. The precursors and solvents that are used in the production process each exhibit a unique infrared fingerprint, which can be detected and identified by using infrared hyperspectral imaging techniques.

This application note presents results showing that the Telops Hyper-Cam has recently demonstrated successful detection of a number of these precursors and solvents, representing an ideal solution to help find and dismantle the terrorist operated clandestine laboratories.
