Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) technologists announced the completion of a revolutionary device that simplifies the remote detection of concealed threats, such as person borne IED (Suicide Bombs) and concealed firearms. Unlike airport scanners, or X-ray based systems, this device does not produce an image of the subject; instead, it works by analyzing radar signals reflected from the person and provides a near instantaneous indication of a threat. An inbuilt computer determines the...
