Nano-Proprietary - Principles of Remote Detection of Explosives

Abstract:
Nano-Proprietary, Inc, through its subsidiary, Applied Nanotech, Inc. (ANI), today announced that during its participation at the Defense Research and Engineering Conference and Exposition sponsored by The American Society of Mechanical Engineers International that took place in Washington, D.C., November 17-19, 2003, it presented for the first time the concept of remote detection of explosives using nanodetectors. The use of nanoscale sensors for CBRE could critically impact national security programs by providing sensitive, selective and inexpensive sensors that can be deployed for advanced security for transportation, military, border crossing, civilian business, federal buildings, etc.
