TESSA02 Workshop a Success!
ALERT hosted the 2nd Annual “Trace Explosives Sampling for Security Applications” (TESSA02) Workshop on August 5, 2015 at Northeastern University in Boston, MA. The TESSA01 Workshop, held in August 2014, was the first in the workshop series, and involved the development of a roadmap for understanding contact sampling for trace explosives detection. The topic of contact sampling was chosen for the workshop series in order to support the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) objective of improving the performance of existing technologies. The theme of this year’s TESSA Workshop was “Fundamentals and Advances in Trace Sampling and Detection” and was led by Professor Steve Beaudoin of Purdue University.
