2519Most environmentally friendly bomb detectorsUniversity of ColoradofirstUnited States, 01 January 2010A team at the University of Colorado, USA, led by Professor June Medford, has developed plants that can detect bombs. Based on the fact that the receptor proteins in plant DNA respond to threatening stimuli by releasing chemicals called terpenoids, which cause changes in a plant’s leaf, this natural defence reaction has been the basis of work into detecting explosives. A computer programme designed to manipulate the reaction in plants, enables the researchers to teach the plant to respond in the same way to chemicals found in explosives and pollution in air and water by changing colour – a reaction that could be detected by satellites. The university team has now been awarded a US $7.9 million grant from the US Defense Threat Reduction Agency to exploit the development operationally
2520Newest revolutionary airborne surveillance system - Gorgon StareGorgon StareUnited States01 December 2010In December 2010, the US Air Force deployed its newest, wide area surveillance system in Afghanistan designated Gorgon Stare. Carried by the MQ-9 Reaper UAV, the revolutionary intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance technology consists of nine video cameras which can send 65 different, live images to different users to track enemy movements on the ground. Whereas current drones shoot video from a single camera and are limited to an area the size of a building or two, the new system can look at a whole city or similar area. When fully deployed operators have a complete and continuous picture of a large area, while the enemy is not able to determine what, precisely, is being looked at.
