Austrian scientists say they've developed a way of using a laser to sniff out explosives from more than 100 meters away.
It sometimes seems as if there isn't anything that can't be done better with graphene. Now, researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute say that the stuff can outperform leading commercial gas sensors in detecting potentially dangerous and explosive chemicals.
If the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) loses their own explosives and nobody is around to see it, did it still happen?
A groundbreaking material is slated to replace steel in warhead casings. It will allow U.S. munitions to detonate with more force than ever before, while significantly increasing the chances of eliminating enemy targets.
MIT's developed a new explosives detector so sensitive that it can pick up a single molecule of an explosive such as TNT.
An Israeli company says its airport security scanners can outperform existing machines - thanks to their population of rodents.
Princeton University engineers have developed a new laser sensing technology that could allow soldiers to detect hidden bombs from a distance.
A Colorado State University biologist has created a species of "plant sentinels" capable of detecting explosives and other environmental contaminants.
MIT scientists have come a big step closer to creating an explosives scanner that's safer than X-ray scanning and can detect a wider range of substances.
A new cap badge could allow immediate diagnosis of the severity of exposure to explosive blasts on the battlefield.
The US Army has deployed a number of handheld devices to help soldiers track insurgents and detect even trace amounts of explosives.
A new remote wave sensing technology can see through clothing and packaging to detect explosives, biological agents and drugs from a distance of 20 meters.
A British team has developed a low-cost laser that can detect hidden explosives from a much greater distance than existing devices.
