We investigated the sensitivity of NQR for explosives such as trinitrotoluene (TNT) and cyclotrimethylenetrinitramine (RDX), the main constituent of explosives of landmines. We succeeded in the remote detection of RDX from 8 cm away using NQR. We have developed a prototype of an NQR landmine detector.
