The use of real explosive materials for canine training involves inherent danger, hazards exposure, and limited availability of the training material all of which affect canine teams. For this reason, the development of a training aid suitable for daily military operations is necessary to provide safe and effective explosive detection training that will further provide enhanced detection capabilities. This study presents a non-contact passive approach for the collection of target volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emanating from real explosive materials to be used as potential canine training aids. This will also provide the ability for the creation of new training aids based on the rapid evolution of new explosive threats.
