Wireless World: Bomb detection wirelessly
A terrorist tries to sneak a bomb hidden in a lunch bag onto Liberty Island and the Statue of Liberty. As he passes through an X-ray machine at a security screening station, images of the bomb are sent over an encrypted, wireless broadband network to a command center in New York City. Bomb technicians evaluate -- and alert the U.S. Park Police, who nab the suspect.
This is not a scene from "The Interpreter," the latest thriller starring Nicole Kidman and Sean Penn -- it is a new technological capability the government has employed to thwart terrorists.
Research continues in the field, where wireless, nano-scale sensors, are being developed for remote monitoring.
