One of the security challenges faced by our contemporary world is terror threats and attacks, and this is no doubt posing potential threats to lives, properties and businesses all around us; affecting the way we live and also travel. Terror attacks have been perpetrated in diverse ways whether from organized terror networks through coordinated attacks or by some lone individuals such that it is now a major concern to people and government. Indeed, there are numerous forms of terror attacks. In this proposal, we look at how the explosive substance kind of threats can be perceived and taken care of prior to potential attacks using intelligent agent systems requirement analysis. Thus, the paper demonstrates using an agent-oriented system analysis and design methodology to decompose. Through defined percepts, goals and plans, agents possess capabilities to observe and perform actions. This proposal demonstrates: how agents can be situated in our cities, goal refinement for agents in the detection and rescue of potential terror attacks, and inter-agent communication for the prevention of chemical terror attack.
