In this paper a novel mechanism for explosive trace detection in any populated area by the use of mobile telephony has been described. The aim is to create a system that will assure common men, local population and above all the nation a secured environment, without disturbing their freedom of movement. It would further help the police in detection of explosives more quickly, isolation of suicide bombers, remediation of explosives manufacturing sites, and forensic and criminal investigation. To achieve this, the paper has projected an idea which can combine the strength of the mobile phones, the polymer sensor and a standard called explosive tracing mobile technology directive (ETMTD) together to form a system called explosive trace detection system (ETDS). The reason for using mobile phone is that it is the most accepted electronic device the world has ever produced, has the largest network, extremely high usage and distributed over a large geography. ETMTD is similar to waste electrical and electronic equipment directive (WEEE) or the European law. The system is capable of detecting explosives within a defined territory. It would communicate the location of the detected explosives to the respective service provider, which in turn would inform the law and enforcement agency or police. ETMTD would enforce the communication without intervention of the user as well as the service provider.
