Nano-sized Chip Sniffs Out Explosives Far Better than Trained Dogs

Security forces worldwide rely on sophisticated equipment, trained personnel, and detection dogs to safeguard airports and other public areas against terrorist attacks. A revolutionary new electronic chip with nano-sized chemical sensors is about to make their job much easier. The […]


New method discovered to protect against chemical weapons

New method discovered to protect against chemical weapons

Researchers at Oregon State University have discovered that some compounds called polyoxoniobates can degrade and decontaminate nerve agents such as the deadly sarin gas, and have other characteristics that may make them ideal for protective suits, masks or other clothing. […]


Army scientists to improve methods of detecting, decontaminating ricin

Army scientists to improve methods of detecting, decontaminating ricin

An envelope laced with ricin intended for the president of the United States was intercepted in April 2013 by law enforcement officials when protocols established for mail screenings revealed the threat of a biological weapon. Ricin is a highly toxic, […]
