Explosives detection in airports is a vital process to ensure the safety and security of all passengers and staff passing through the airport. There are several ways in which this can be carried out and is mostly non-destructive.

Colometrics is the most common and widely used technique for explosion detection. Colometrics involves the applying a chemical reagent to the target and observing a colour change which will indicate either an explosive or a decoy. The shoe of colour denotes the severity of the explosive device.

Dogs can be specially trained to sniff out scents that relate to explosive devises. Dogs are trained my highly qualified handlers. Whilst this method is highly effective, the dogs can become tired or distracted which lessens the effect.

Mechanical scent detection. Several machines have been developed that can trace certain scents that have been left by various explosive materials. The most common technology for this is ion mobility spectrometer (IMS). Molecules are ionised at atmospheric pressure and moved in an electric field vacuum. This can be slow depending on the size of the ion.
