Using of Acoustic Techniques for Detection of Explosives in Gas, Liquid and Solid Mediums
Industrial nuclear power facilities are very attractive targets for radiological and chemical terrorism, for which explosives may be used. Although so far this type of terrorism has not revealed itself, the problem of detection of explosives at these facilities is becoming very important, for example, in connection with the implementation of the urgent decommissioning of nuclear-powered vessels. Such decommissioning includes utilization of dangerous radioactive and chemical elements contained in submarines and ships’ reactors. This problem exists not only in Russia, but abroad as well. It has been noted that catastrophes at these facilities would add to an already negative perception of nuclear facilities in the world in general , as it was after the Chernobyl accident.
