Phoenix Nuclear Labs Successfully Tests Explosive Detection System

July 3rd, 2014 | Filed under: Press Release

Phoenix Nuclear Labs (PNL) announced today that it has successfully completed preliminary testing of an explosives detection system funded by the US Army. PNL’s neutron-based interrogation system is capable of detecting so-called “undetectable explosives” because it detects the explosive material itself rather than specific chemical signatures or other associated components such as metallic casing or triggering mechanisms.
