Realization K YKLOTRON

 

Explosives detection in the field

 

 

 

 

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 realize in fields explosives detection from long distance using the AL MANARA security systems,    K YKLOTRON system.

 

 

 

 

 

While all other explosive detectors needs samples to be collected from the suspected material, K YKLOTRON sensor system 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.

 

 

 

 

Realization K YKLOTRON operation in the fields

 

PURPOSE

The purpose of this procedure is to search from a long 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 in a wide test area (WTA).

 

METHOD

The procedure take place in an wide test area that is clean from explosives. The operator (K YKLOTRON  sensor 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 procedure explosives. If any angle is dirty then the explosives for the test in that angle are removed.  If explosives could not be removed, the test area must change. 

 

An operator (K YKLOTRON  Sensor system user) with a K YKLOTRON  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 ).

In corporation with the K YKLOTRON  sensor system operator works a K YKLOTRON  CONTROLLER (K YKLOTRON coordinator) using  a K YKLOTRON laptop controller system and a Wi-Fi ADSL2 modem+router.   The controller accepts on his laptop screen the data transmitted form K YKLOTRON sensor system operator and record in a separate session the all process. 

 

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 transmit to the K YKLOTRON Control server (laptop)

4. Scan the area from two different locations 1, 2 as shown in the Pic.1

PROTOCOL 

 

1.      K YKLOTRON  sensor system Operator goes away from the near target area (Pic 2) in order not to see where the explosives be placed.

2.      The explosives are placed somewhere inside the near target area (RED SQUARE on Pic 2 and red arrow in next picture ).  

 

 

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  ( Pic 1,  2).

 

  1. LONG DISTANCE EXPLOSIVES DETECTION. The operator detects using the K YKLOTRON  sensor and find a direction that the explosives are. 

 

 

 

Left: PAD screen on K YKLOTRON  sensor.  The red angle points the target direction from check point 1.  The blue triangle is users position at check point 1.

Right: K YKLOTRON  Controller screen on coordinators laptop. The black line represent  the direction of sensors antenna. The black square is controllers position at check point 1.

 

 

5.      The operator record this direction using the K YKLOTRON  software, on the digital map on the screen.

 

       

 

Left: PAD screen on K YKLOTRON  sensor.  The red line points the target direction from check point 1.  The blue triangle is users position at check point 1.

Right:  K YKLOTRON  Controller screen on coordinators laptop.  The black line points the target direction.  The black square is controllers position at check point 1.

 

      

 

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.   

 

 

Left: PAD screen on K YKLOTRON  sensor.  The blue triangle is users position at check point 2. The red line is the direction from check point1.    

Right:  K YKLOTRON  Controller screen on coordinators laptop.  The black line points the target direction.  The black square is controllers position at check point 2.

 

7.      The operator search (from check Point 2) and finds a new target direction.   

 

 

 

 

Left: PAD screen on K YKLOTRON  sensor.  The blue triangle now is users position at check point 2. The red angle points the antenna of the sensor searching. The red line is the direction from check point1.    

Right:  K YKLOTRON  Controller screen on coordinators laptop. The black line points the target direction(that form the square). The black square is controllers position at check point 2. The other black line(without square) is the line from the check point1 detection.

 

      The operator record (pressing ‘fire button’) this direction using the K YKLOTRON  software, on the digital map on the screen.  The K YKLOTRON  CONTROLLER also focus on target in the K YKLOTRON CONTROLLER laptop.

 

 

 

Left: PAD screen on K YKLOTRON  sensor. The blue triangle now is users position at check point 2. The red angle points the antenna of the sensor searching. The red line is the direction from check point1.     

 

Right:  The user has defined the exact point of the target on the GIS map.  At this point the K YKLOTRON  sensor will automatic appear a message on screen giving the exact latitude and Longitude of the target and the distance of the target in meter. User also hears a continuously BEEP. At this point the K YKLOTRON  sensor  will ask the user to CONFIRM this process.  If user reject the process (pushing the ‘No’ button) then the second red line will disappear giving to the user the ability to check again for finding the target, from the second check point.  The process is the same as before.  User can also change position if he wills to.  BEEP stops only if user acts on ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ buttons.  The logic is simple. Every time 2 lines crossing the system ‘understands’ this as the target position.  The user only has to find the 2 directions.

 

 

 

 

K YKLOTRON  Controller screen on coordinators laptop.  The black line points the target direction(that form the square). The black square is controllers position at check point 2. The other black line(without square) is the line from the check point1 detection. The target is at the cross of the two black lines. If another user acts under the same coordinator, then his lines represented by another color.When K YKLOTRON  sensor fires a line this line automatically represented on K YKLOTRON  Controller laptop screen.  K YKLOTRON  CONTROLLER system automatically recording all process to a file (positions, check points, lines of all users acting) so control and checks after work could be done.  

 

    

8.      The operator now recognize the NEAR TARGET AREA showing at his PAD screen digital map. 

 

9.      NEAR EXPLOSIVES DETECTION. Operator goes to the NEAR TARGET AREA that the explosives are placed inside the test area.  His work now is to pin – point explosives or gone as closer to them.

 

10.  FIRST NEAR detection AREA CHECK POINT. The operator choose a position and search. He  find’s a first direction of the target (explosives).  This is the FIRST NEAR CHECK POINT.  At this point most times no need of PAD using or digital maps needed.

 

 

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

 

 

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

 

13.  The operator now is sure about the target position because the cross lines are just a few meters long. He does the last check, pointing to the target and moving, so that the target attracts his antenna. This is the most secure way to find the target.  Target is just 10 meters in front.

 

Every move user does, the antenna pointing at the target as the sensor – explosives range is quite short and the attraction (magnetic tune phenomenon) very strong. Is like walking around a circle that the center of which are the explosives (next picture). Antenna always now showing the center of this circle.
