Bees for Explosive Detection

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


NATO Science for Peace and Security Programme accepted to support Bees for Explosive detection at the end of 2017 year. Conditioning of a colony has been challenge and its use in a test mine field conditions was one of the research goals in TIRAMISU FP7 project. An aim of the programme is to develop innovative methods and technologies for the detection of legacy landmines. This will be achieved by the advancement and integration of current state-of-the-art techniques, namely, bee colonies in conjunction with organic semiconductor-based explosive vapour sensing films, and UAVs with high-definition and thermal imaging cameras and image processing and analysis software.
The use of these methods together will allow both the passive sampling of an area to confirm the presence of explosive materials, and the active pinpointing of landmine locations.
The major objective of Bees for Explosive is to work with end-users and experts to ensure a high-impact delivery of the project’s results.
