National workshop on explosive detection in Pune


PUNE: A National Workshop on Explosives Detection (NWED) was inaugurated at High Energy Materials Research Laboratory (HEMRL) at Pashan here.

The workshop will provide a platform to scientists, technocrats and users to share knowledge experience and update information on the technological advancements made in the recent past. A total of 200 delegates from different DRDO labs, Army, Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), police, academic institutes, industry and other security agencies are attending the workshop.

The chief guest Atul Chandra Kulkarni, additional director general of police and chief of Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) in his address brought out that detection of explosives is a compelling need of the hour. Guest of honour P K Mehta, a distinguished scientist and director general (Armament cluster engineering), emphasized that concerted efforts must be made for development of devices for detection of concealed explosives.

"No single technology would suffice to detect all types of explosives. Hence scientists should think of amalgamation of two or three technologies and come out with a device to provide a comprehensive solution,” Mehta pointed. K P S Murthy, Outstanding Scientist and Director HEMRL, mentioned that significant amount of research work is being carried out in DRDO and academia.
