Non-Lethal Weapons: Technologies & Global Market - 2012-2020Terrorist attacks using Person-Borne IEDs (PBIED) and Vehicle-Borne IEDs (VBIED) remain a global problem, and have driven a growing number of homeland security and defense organizations to procure PBIED & VBIED standoff detection equipment.

The purpose of standoff PBIED & VBIED detection technologies is to determine at a safe distance if a human subject or a vehicle are carrying concealed explosives or weapons. Concealed weapons detection is perceived as one of the greatest challenges facing the counter-terror and military communities today. The threat posed by suicide bombers is the key to the emergence of transformational counter-terror technologies and tactics. The maturity and deployment of advanced standoff detection technologies capable of detecting suicide and other terrorists at a safe distance will change the landscape of homeland security and asymmetric warfare.
