(Distributed Chemical Sensor Particles)
Smart Sand uses a distributed chemical particle with a fluorescent signature and LIDAR detection.
|Smart SAND |
- Crop "dust" suspected areas with sensor particles.
- Particles react with target chemical to produce a fluorescent signature.
- Detection LIDAR or fluorescence imaging method.
How it Works
The sensor particles have fluorescent signature which is quenched upon binding of TNT. Thus indirect detection of TNT occurs when there is a change in fluorescence due to the presence of the explosive.
