CSIRO’s air cargo scanner allows rapid identification of contraband in air freight containers. Existing bulk scanning technologies use high-energy X-rays to detect distinctive metal objects such as weapons, but ill-defined, organic materials such as drugs and explosives, are harder for them to detect. CSIRO’s world-first technology combines neutrons and gamma-rays to detect and predict the […]
