Australian know-how in 'explosive' scanning development


Australian firm GreyScan  has developed a unique device capable of rapidly detecting homemade explosives – and it is being developed to provide global security agencies with a powerful new tool against terrorism.

The United States Transport Security Administration is planning to trial the technology as part of its aviation security measures, recognising that inorganic explosives trace detection is a capability gap which the GreyScan technology fills.

Minister for Defence, Christopher Pyne, recently launched a prototype of the GreyScan explosive detection device while visiting the Grey Innovation Group facilities in Melbourne.
