Over the next few years, the Ministry of National Security will be able to instantly receive all the information about your body, clothes and luggage with a new laser molecular laser operating at a distance of 50 meters. Starting with traces of drugs or gun powder on your clothes, and ending with information about what you ate for breakfast and on the level of adrenaline in the blood - all this becomes known, even without a single touch.
In this case, you may not even suspect that underwent this procedure.
In the government’s plans include installation of molecular scanners at airports and border checkpoints USA. The official purpose of this innovation is the rapid detection of explosives, dangerous chemicals or biological weapons in the distance.
This machine is ten million times faster and one million times more sensitive than existing counterparts. Thus, it can be applied to every incoming at the airport and not just randomly selected suspected or humans.
Software company, Genia Photonics, stated that the scanning laser is able to "penetrate clothing and many other organic materials, providing spectroscopic information, especially about the materials that pose a threat to security, such as explosives or pharmacological substance."
Genia Photonics has received 30 patents for this technology. In addition to public safety, the company says about the possible use of their devices in biology, medicine and industry. It allows the identification of individual cancer cells in real time, or to determine the materials involved in the production process sensitive.
Due to the fact that the device is easy to transport, it can also be used in the subway, on the roads, stadiums and so on.
This machine is a mobile that is installed in a rack system. It emits laser beams, analyzing the resulting response at the molecular level, at a distance of up to 50 meters, all within a few picoseconds.
This small, inconspicuous machine is connected to a computer, which displays all the information in real time, starting with traces of cocaine on banknotes, finishing powder, accidentally fell on your shoes.
Russia also has similar technology. In April last year, was announced "laser sensor that can detect single molecules at a distance of 50 meters."
According to a representative of the Department of Science and Technology Department of Homeland Security, these scanners will be ready in one to two years, which means that they can appear in airports in 2013.
