Title: The use of neutrons for the detection of explosives in Civil Security Applications

The search for hidden explosives has been simulated in laboratory conditions by using our Tagged Neutron Inspection System (TNIS). Applications of the TNIS concept to Civil Security problems are discussed in the light of our projects for cargo container inspections. Moreover, neutron attenuation and scattering can be used to search in real time for large quantity of explosive hidden in vehicles.
