The chapters during this quantity have been offered on the July 2005NATO complicated learn Institute on Advances in Sensing with safety App- cations. The convention used to be held on the appealing Il Ciocco hotel close to Lucca, within the wonderful Tuscany quarter of northern Italy. once more we accumulated at this idyllic spot to discover and expand the reciprocity among arithmetic and engineering. The dynamic interplay - tween world-renowned scientists from the often disparate groups of natural mathematicians and utilized scientists which happened at our six prior ASI’s persisted at this assembly. The fusion of simple rules in arithmetic, biology, and chemistry with ongoing advancements in and computation o?ers the promise of even more refined and actual sensing services than c- rently exist. Coupled with the dramatic upward push within the want for surveillance in innumerable features of our day-by-day lives, led to by means of adverse acts deemed incredible just a couple of brief years in the past, the time was once correct for scientists within the diversified parts of sensing and safeguard to affix jointly in a concerted e?ort to strive against the recent manufacturers of terrorism. This ASI was once one very important preliminary step. To surround the varied nature of the s- ject and the numerous backgrounds of the expected contributors, the ASI used to be divided into 3 largely de?ned yet interrelated components: the - creasing desire for speedy and exact sensing, the scienti?c underpinnings of the continuing revolution in sensing, and speci?c sensing algorithms and strategies. The ASI introduced jointly international leaders from academia, executive, andindustry,withextensivemultidisciplinarybackgroundsevidencedby theirresearchandparticipationinnumerousworkshopsandconferences.

33, No. 3, pp 1041–1051, 1997. THE TERRORIST THREAT AND ITS IMPLICATIONS FOR SENSOR TECHNOLOGIES Jennifer L. Brower Prometheus Inc. Newport, RI 02840, USA Abstract Recent terrorist attacks demonstrated that even sophisticated terrorists capable of planning and executing multiple, coordinated attacks continue to rely on traditional weapons rather than risk the uncertainty of chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear (CBRN) weapons. While some terrorist organizations have the motivations and capabilities to conduct large attacks worldwide, we have not yet witnessed the use of so called weapons of mass destruction (WMD) foreshadowed by the 1995 Sarin attacks in Tokyo, the discovery of al Qaeda’s crude biological weapons program in Afghanistan, and the anthrax attacks in the United States in the fall of 2001.

Evidence of al Qaeda’s evolving strategy can be found in the tapes released periodically by Bin Laden and his associates. In a tape released on October 6, 2002, four days prior to the Bali bombing, Bin Laden and his lieutenant Ayman al-Zawahiri warned “By God, the youths of God are preparing for you things that would fill your hearts with terror and target your economic lifeline until you stop your oppression and aggression” [6]. Energy, particularly oil, has been specifically targeted. ” For example, in October 2002 terrorists targeted a Malaysian oil tanker and killed a Bulgarian sailor off the cost of Yemen.

Of the eleven victims of inhalational anthrax, six survived. Eleven people also came down with cutaneous anthrax. Thousands of potentially exposed individuals were prescribed the antibiotic Cipro. The perpetrator is still unknown. This attack demonstrated that an individual could create highly refined anthrax spores, which, if disseminated properly, could infect hundreds, thousands or more. What is less clear is whether the perpetrator or any other terrorist could produce larger amounts (kgs) of anthrax and efficiently disseminate the spores over a wide area.
