Emerging Threats, Emerging Solutions: Focus on Explosives

This third webinar will provide an overview of the explosive threats that we face as emergency response and military personnel as well as an overview of the role of FTIR technology as one of the tools in your response toolbox. The explosives threat space is multi-dimensional, including commercial, military, and homemade explosives. The threat segment of this course will focus on identifying the threats in and around your jurisdiction, aligning your capabilities with those threats, and identifying gaps in your tool set.

The course will also look at Emerging Solutions for each of the threat categories and see where current and evolving technologies come together to address the operational needs. Remember, no one device will cover all the operational needs. Instead, using a “toolbox” approach to detection will provide the operator with the necessary capabilities.
