Dr. Philip Womble on Countering IEDs and Limitations of Neutron-Based Explosive Detection Systems

Posted: 09/14/2010

Dr. Philip Womble, Professor at the Applied Physics Institute at Western Kentucky University, discusses the limitations of neutron-based detection systems at IDGA's Counter-IED Summit in January 2010. Dr. Womble elaborates on using nuclear techniques (once thought of as a silver bullet in explosives detection) to Counter IEDs. He also details the positives of the systems and how they are bulk systems and can analyze tons of material in an hour and that the data acquistion times are usually less than 15 minutes. Also, the techniques are non destructive and non invasive and can penetrate deeply into an object.
