Abstract

 

Continued acts of terrorism using explosive materials throughout the world have led to great interest in long distance explosives detection technology, especially technologies that have a potential for remote on detection. This report was undertaken in order to establish standard test procedures, exclusively for systems using NQR tech in explosives & narcotics detection.

Annex ‘A’    KYKLOTRON E3  SENSOR SYSTEMS TEST PLAN Based on Double Blind Method

 

 

 

Establishing a Test for DRAMS Early Warning System

 

PURPOSE

The purpose is to search from a distance of over 500 m ( 650 m  and triangulate at 350 m )  to find a small quantity of ½ lbs of TNT explosive matter and some grams of other well known explosives.

 

METHOD

The test take place in an area that is clean from explosives.  The operator (system user) takes few trials before the test starts to check if any angle is dirty ( have in mind that may be an unknown explosive matter is in this direction)  from other explosives further away that do not belong to the test explosives. If any angle is dirty then the explosives for the test in that angle are removed.

An operator (KYKLOTRON E3 Sensor system user) with a KYKLOTRON E3 Sensor system stands in the center of o circle of 605 m radius.  Around him on a half circle , ½ lbs of TNT explosive matter and some grams of other well known explosives are placed (inside  a large  area of about 46420 m2, the red square in the picture ).

 

 

PROTOCOL 

1.      Operator goes away from the test area in order not to see.

2.      The explosives are placed somewhere inside the test area (RED SQUARE).

3.      The operator goes out of the test area and goes to a point over 500 meters  far. This is the FIRST OUTER CHECK POINT (1).

4.      The operator search and find a direction that the explosives are. 

5.      The operator record this direction using the KYKLOTRON E3 software, on the digital map on the screen.

6.      The operator change position, out of the test area and goes to another  point over 350 m  far. This is the SECOND OUTER CHECK POINT.

7.      The operator search and find a direction that the explosives are. 

8.      The operator record this direction using the KYKLOTRON E3 software, on the digital map on the screen.

9.      The operator shows to testers the area (blue circle) that the explosives are placed on the digital map, on the screen and then shows to them the place on ground (if  the explosive place could been seen). 

10.  Operator goes to the area (blue circle on the digital map of the PAD screen) that the explosives are placed inside the test area.   His target is to pin – point explosives or gone as closer to them.

11.  The operator search and find a direction that the explosives are.  This is the FIRST NEAR CHECK POINT.

12.  The operator change position, not far from the FIRST NEAR CHECK POINT but in a different angle.  This is the SECOND NEAR CHECK POINT.

13.  The operator search and find a second direction that the explosives are. 

14.  The operator shows to testers the EXACT POINT that the explosives are placed on the ground.

 

    FIXING AN IDEAL TEST AREA

 

 

 

Test Methodology for the KYKLOTRON E3 sensors system

METHOD 1

While all other explosive detectors needs samples to be collected from the suspected material, the Device is the world’s 1st and only one system that can detect and localize the explosives from a distance. It is up to the user how effectively it can be handled and utilized for localizing the explosive area and conducting further search operations to identify and defuse the explosives to prevent the loss of life and property. Before doing any search operation the operator needs thorough knowledge of the device and also needs full-fledged training of handling the equipment. Search operation needs the fallowing steps to be fallowed:

 

1. Define the area of search to be conducted

2. Understand the geography of the location

3. Collect the data and furnish the profarma (Annexure-1)

4. Scan the area from three different locations P1, P2 and P3 as shown in the Pic.1

 

The localization of explosive area occurs when there is only one explosive is planted in the location. The localized are 5m to 50m radius depends upon the quantity and type of the explosives. (Note here that the magnetic field of each material/composition of the material depend on the type of material and the quantity of the material used in the explosive) Conduct the search operation with the conventional methods to trace out the Explosive 5. 6. Defuse the explosive

 METHOD 2

1. Define the area of search to be conducted

2. Understand the geography of the location

3. Collect the data and furnish the proforma (Annexure-1)

4. If found more than one line scan the area from three different locations P1, P2 , P3,

P4 & P5 as shown in the Pic.2

 

 

The localization of explosive areas T1, T2 & T3 occurs when there are multiple explosives planted in the location. The localized area may be 5m to 50m radius depends upon the quantity and type of the explosives. (Note here that the magnetic field of each material/composition of the material depend on the type of material and the quantity of the material used in the explosive)

. Once the targets are localized from a long distance to be more precious/authentic about the target do the close range scanning, but keep in mind that the detection distance from the target should not be less than 50m because there is every chance for missing the target when you conduct the scan from the close range

 

 

 

After the target is confirmed conduct the search operation with the conventional methods to trace out the Explosive. 7. Defuse the explosive

 

Probability of Target missing in close range detection (Multiple explosives in the location too close to each other (less than 50m distance)

The device has integrated elements to paramagnetism the detected materials. When multiple explosives are close to each other the magnetic flux causes deviation in detection. In such case the detection is easier from a long distance than close range. Explosives, which are within 15m ranges to each other, will have to be treated as single target. Detection of Targets on the trees and buildings

 

 

 

 

Close target will be overruled by the much stronger explosive dump/depot at longer distance beyond the location on search.

 

 

Very Important Note

 

Do

o Works on magnetic tuned phenomenon technology

o Detects the explosives on surface within the distance up to

 5m to 20000m

o Detects the buried explosives up to 5 m below the ground

o Detects all the pre tuned explosives

o Localizes the explosive area up to 50m radius

 

Don’t

o Though detects explosives on the tress and building but, may

get influenced by the larger quantity of explosives beyond the

search operation area.

o Multiple explosives within the distance of 50m to each other

will have be treated as a single target and the detection done

from long distance to be should be considered.

o Only well trained operators needs to handle the device

o Don’t do the scanning while walking

o Moving target influences the detection of fixed target

PURPOSE

 

The purpose is to detect from a distance of 100m ( 3 red lines) to find which one of 12 identical containers ( 1,2,3..12)  has ½ Libra TNT, or other type of explosive matter (in container no 3), call as ‘TARGET’ .

 

PROTOCOL

 

  • Using KYKLOTRON E3 sensor system user checks if the test area is clear from explosive matters.

  • The explosive matter is placed into the test area, in front of the KYKLOTRON E3 sensor system user .

  • Using KYKLOTRON E3 sensor system user checks if the TARGET tuned from the KYKLOTRON E3 system.  

  • If ‘YES’, then KYKLOTRON E3 sensor system user goes away from the test area, not enable to see the final blind test preparations.

  • If ‘NO’  the tester changes the explosive matter , or test procedure is canceled. 

  • TARGET is placed in one of 12 containers as in figure ‘1’.

  • KYKLOTRON E3 sensor system user comes then into the test area and stands at the center of the semi-circle, as at picture above.

  •  KYKLOTRON E3 sensor system user detects for finding the TARGET and tells to the tester in which container the TARGET have been placed.

  • Using KYKLOTRON E3 sensor system user checks if the TARGET tuned from the KYKLOTRON E3 system. 

  • If ‘YES’, then KYKLOTRON E3 sensor system user goes away from the test area (buildings) , not enable to see the final blind test preparations.

  • If ‘NO’  the tester changes the explosive matter , or test procedure is canceled.
