Explosives detection

Appears in the issue.

CompactSafeis a new system that is designed to detect solid and liquid explosive residues on the surface of and inside small electronic devices, such as laptops, MP3 players, cameras, and cellular phones. The objects under examination are placed in a sealed enclosure that fills with compressed air, loosening particles of explosive materials, which can then be sensed by a conventional trace detector. Israel-based TraceGuard introduced the system, along with a second model, CarrySafe, that can detect explosives in larger carry-on bags. Both detectors are designed to be located next to existing x-ray machines at airports.
