Abstract : The problem of detecting people in hiding from a distance is central to developing reliably effective methods of countering ambushes in military operations. Techniques that depend upon detection of airborne human effluents are among those that have been considered. Another possibility is that insects that are normally attracted to people may be utilized as biosensors in a sensitive and reliable personnel detector.
