Bomb-Sniffing Drones Nearing Reality

The Wisconsin State Journal reports that “Drones may soon have the capability to save thousands of lives each year by detecting terrorists’ improvised explosive devices and active land mines from long-ago wars thanks to innovative technology developed at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.”  

“The proven detection technology that also can detect chemical and nuclear weapons and drugs was successfully miniaturized and attached to an unmanned aircraft by Fusion Technology Lab graduate students about five months ago, according to Jerry Kulcinski, an emeritus professor of nuclear engineering and the lab’s director.”
