The dynamic of the homeland security market is much like that of the broader mil/defense landscape. That is, technology in and of itself does not a market player make. OTOH, airport security and perimeter protection is actually a hotbed of innovation. I did a story early last year on a little-known effort by IBM, which I still find fascinating (the effort, not my story). Take a look at "IBM Patenting Airport Security Profiling Technology."
The detection system itself is of marginal benefit unless it is linked with an action element able to stop the incursion.
To prevent hostile incursions I would suggest a copy of our Navy "PHLANX" system, which provides an awsome level of protectionm against incoming "anything". Because most of the information is classified, there may not be much more information available than what I have already mentioned. However, the term awsome is certainly applicable.
It's not marketed at the home market but at the "homeland security" market -- high-value domestic targets like dams, airports, power plants, air traffic control centers, prisons, borders, etc. My term of choice would have been domestic, rather than homeland security, but some government person post-9/11 chose homeland security (which always sounds vaguely Nazi-esque to me), so we are stuck with it.
Lantronix Inc. has expanded its line of controllers for sensor networks with the release of a rugged controller that improves management of automation systems used in a number of industries, including manufacturing, oil and gas, and chemicals.
Inspired by the hooks a parasitic worm uses to penetrate its host's intestines, the Karp Lab has invented a flexible adhesive patch covered with microneedles that adheres well to wet, soft tissues, but doesn't cause damage when removed.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
