Bombs Away

European researchers in a research funded by the European Union have developed and tested a fairly light–weight device named OPTIX (Optical Technologies for the Identification of Explosives) that is capable of detecting extremely minute quantities of explosives from a range of up to 20 metres.

The range and efficiency it offers makes it a handy tool for law–enforcement agencies to fight against bomb attacks. This is the first time that such sensitivity has been achieved in a bomb disposal device, thanks to the lasers that can identify the atomic and molecular structure of explosives. OPTIX uses advanced optical technologies and can be mounted on a compact remote vehicle to detect explosives.

The unique feature of the device is that it can detect explosives weighing less than 1 milligram, which can also be the residue left behind while handling the explosives.

The most wonderful and precious element of universe is the human life which can only be guided by the right knowledge and right attitude. So, here is an ocean of knowledge, both in English and Hindi encompassing every detail and each facet of human life which ‘one must know’ in order to grow and attain the summits of success. A team of around 200 dedicated members is working ceaselessly to turn such a colossal dream into reality. We are confident that this portal will help bring change in people across the world.
