The chapters during this quantity have been offered on the July 2005NATO complicated examine Institute on Advances in Sensing with protection App- cations. The convention was once held on the attractive Il Ciocco lodge close to Lucca, within the excellent Tuscany area of northern Italy. once more we accrued at this idyllic spot to discover and expand the reciprocity among arithmetic and engineering. The dynamic interplay - tween world-renowned scientists from the customarily disparate groups of natural mathematicians and utilized scientists which happened at our six past ASI’s persisted at this assembly. The fusion of uncomplicated principles 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 elements of our day-by-day lives, led to by way of opposed acts deemed incredible just a couple of brief years in the past, the time used to be correct for scientists within the diversified components of sensing and safety to affix jointly in a concerted e?ort to wrestle the recent manufacturers of terrorism. This ASI used to be one very important preliminary step. To surround the varied nature of the s- ject and the various backgrounds of the expected individuals, the ASI was once divided into 3 greatly de?ned yet interrelated parts: the - creasing desire for quick and exact sensing, the scienti?c underpinnings of the continuing revolution in sensing, and speci?c sensing algorithms and strategies. The ASI introduced jointly global leaders from academia, govt, andindustry,withextensivemultidisciplinarybackgroundsevidencedby theirresearchandparticipationinnumerousworkshopsandconferences.

This chapter describes our current understanding of the global terrorist threat including the use of CBRN weapons. A discussion of the implications for sensor research, particularly for chemical and biological agents and radioactive materials then follows. Keywords: terrorism; al Qaeda; chemical terrorism; biological terrorism; radiological terrorism; nuclear terrorism; state sponsored terrorism; threat; sensors. 1. Introduction The deadly terrorist bombings of July 7, 2005 in London again demonstrated that even sophisticated terrorists capable of planning and executing multiple, coordinated attacks continue to rely on traditional weapons rather than risk the technical and political uncertainty of chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear (CBRN) weapons.
The FARC began as a Marxist organization determined to overthrow Columbia’s government and replace it with a communist regime. The organization has wandered from its origins and increasingly focuses on the illicit drug trade and engaging in peace talks with the government. It now has more limited goals of controlling territory within the country. In addition to cocaine sales, the FARC uses kidnapping, extortion and hijacking to pad its coﬀers, reportedly taking in as much as $2 million per day.
3 Leaderless Resistance and Loose Networks The successful disruption of al Qaeda described above has forced the group to decentralize further into a “loose collection of regional networks that operate more autonomously” . S. S. S. Embassy, a Navy ship, and Navy personnel . JI was identiﬁed as the operational leader; however, eight of thirteen men arrested in January 2002 for connections to the plot had trained in al Qaeda camps in Afghanistan and Malaysia. Surveillance footage of the Singaporean targets was found in the home of an al Qaeda leader in Afghanistan, indicating close coordination between operatives in Southeast Asia and Afghanistan .
