Detect Bombers from 50 or more yards away
The CounterBomber system beams low-power radar at a person to detect concealed bombs or weapons beneath clothing. The technology, which could detect suicide bombers from 50 or more yards away, may reach market later this year. Future versions may be augmented with gait-recognition software that detects when people are carrying heavy objects--or leaving objects on the ground--by analyzing anomalies in a person's gait.
