Detection techniques on explosives: Countering an explosive threat, across the timeline of a plot
Description of call
"Detection techniques on explosives: Countering an explosive threat, across the timeline of a plot"

Extensive research has developed, in recent years, methods and techniques to enhance support to those involved in countering explosive threats, including efforts to counter Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) and Home-Made Explosives (HMEs). But up until now, no comprehensive research has assessed the effectiveness, the efficiency and the cost of the combination of these methods and techniques (including those developed outside of these civilian sphere) to stop the threat at some point in time before the attack.
