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, […]


Bomb-detecting lasers could improve security checkpoints

Bomb-detecting lasers could improve security checkpoints

Michigan State University research has put the possibility of bomb-detecting lasers at security checkpoints within reach. In the current issue of Applied Physics Letters, Marcos Dantus, MSU chemistry professor and founder of BioPhotonic Solutions, has developed a laser that can […]


Army scientists research new technologies for rapid, accurate detection capabilities

Army scientists research new technologies for rapid, accurate detection capabilities

First responders occasionally come across suspicious powders, requiring them to have technology on hand to screen samples and identify whether or not they are a chemical or biological agent. Current technology performs a test to determine whether or not protein […]

Navy Minehunting Fleet Upgraded with Improved Sonar Detection Capability

Engineers from the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Panama City, Fla., completed the first installation of the AN/SQQ-32(V)4 minehunting sonar set upgrade on USS Guardian (MCM 5) April 18, in the ship’s homeport of Sasebo, Japan. The minehunting sonar set is […]


Smart gas sensors for better chemical detection

Smart gas sensors for better chemical detection

Portable gas sensors can allow you to search for explosives, diagnose medical conditions through a patient’s breath, and decide whether it’s safe to stay in a mine. These devices do all this by identifying and measuring airborne chemicals, and a […]
