Introducing...X-Ray Vision (no, really!)
    #977926 - 10/20/02 10:02 PM (16 years, 3 months ago)

While this is could be a medical breakthrough in many ways, it also is of obvious interest to those interested in security. It will be interesting to see what methods are devised to counter this technology...

A camera that can see through clothes, skin and even walls without X-rays has been developed in what is being called one of the first great technological breakthroughs of the 21st century.

The "terahertz" camera, still in prototype form, is under rapid development by scientists in Oxfordshire. It is likely to have many applications, ranging from medical scanning to identifying concealed weapons on airline passengers.

Unlike X-rays, it does not expose patients to potentially harmful radiation. Instead, it detects a form of ultra-high-frequency, or terahertz, energy waves naturally emitted by all objects.

Nor does it require people to walk through a special scanner: anything that comes within range of the terahertz camera is exposed to its penetrating gaze.

This could have interesting implications for security issues that those visiting these forums may face. Despite last year's ruling that the use of thermal scanning technology constituted unlawful search if used without a warrant*, the current political climate may lead to this decision being overturned in future cases.

*this specific case involved an Oregon man who was busted for growing marijuana that the police discovered by using thermal scanning to see that he was using a large number of grow lights in his residence...

Neat :smile:

This is new news...but its old technology

Durning the Vietnam war US survallience crews would fly over certain areas and detect underground missle bunkers and hideouts by being able to detect a materials natural frequency.

The DEA used the same technology in the 1970's but I believe funding for it was cancelled.

I know that the DEA has found underground marijauna operations in other countries.  The concept is simple.  Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING gives off a natural frequency.  If you know the frequency you then know what to look for. 

Plants, humans, cars, metal light posts...they all resonate a certain frequency.  From what I've read, finding a natural frequency isn't hard, its being able to detect it is the hard part :smile: 

Still, its pretty neat stuff.
