Andrew Johnston submits explosive detection abstract for ISADE 2013
ISADE (International Symposium on the Analysis and Detection of Explosives) has received an abstract from Falcon Communications based on the explosive detector standards work and PhD that they sponsor. The symposium is held every three years and in 2013 it is organised by three Dutch organisations engaged with research and development on explosives: the Netherlands Forensic Institute (NFI), the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research (TNO) and the National Coordinator for Counterterrorism and Security (NCTV).
ISADE is for technical and scientific experts in explosive and security forensics, it concentrates on analysis and detection and covers three major themes: Complementary and common issues in security and forensics; 'New' explosives: state-of-the-art and beyond; from analytical to operational and vice versa. ISADE 2013 will take place during the 'Explosive Week’, a week in which a platform is provided for various stakeholders in the field of explosives, at the NFI Field Lab facility in Den Haag over the period 7-10 October . The participants in this meeting will discuss the main worldwide policy issues on the analysis and detection of explosives and in addition NCTV will organise an international exercise on explosives: XXplosive 2013. The exercise is 5th in a series of International CBRN/E exercises and builds upon the experiences and lessons learned in Cobalt 2009, BIOSHIELD 2010, CHEMSHIELD 2011 and @TOMIC 2012.
