This paper describes the expected performance of a new portable vapor detection system under development by Biosensor Applications Sweden AB. The system is designed for area reduction n humanitarian mine clearance operations. It consists of a collection system and a biosensor with a sensitivity capable of detecting picogram levels of TNT molecules. Biosensor has over the past four years developed the base technology for detection of TNT for a land mine application. A prototype for TNT detection will be tested in minefields during 1999. Our technology, sometimes called 'the artificial dog nose', has by many experts been described as revolutionary.
