Latest anti-terrorism technology to be discussed at London Seminar.

The British Technion Society : 18 October, 2007  (New Product)
Portable explosive testers, IED disarming robot and 3D biometric face recognition to be discussed at London seminar of the British Technion Society.
Five of the world's leading scientists in security and defence technologies are to speak at a seminar at the IOD on Pall Mall in London on Wednesday 14th November 2007 to present the most advanced security technologies available to market and those currently under exploration.

The specialists from the Technion, Israel's Institute of Technology, include peroxide-based explosives expert Professor Ehud Keinan, who will be demonstrating the pocket-sized Peroxide Explosives Tester (PET). The PET is able to detect trace amounts of Peroxide Explosives including TATP and HMTD, the explosive used in the 7/7 and various other terrorist bombings. The small, disposable device is designed for non-experts to allow fast identification of suspected materials in a variety of settings. The PET is being marketed in the UK by KeTech Detection, suppliers of detection and explosive trace equipment and is currently under consideration by a number of official organisations.

Another speaker at this unique conference is Professor Ron Kimmel, an expert in face recognition who will present one of the world's most advanced systems which allows accurate three-dimensional face recognition in almost real time. Professor Kimmel will introduce the concept of Generalised Multidimensional Scaling which allows precise face recognition even when parts of the face are hidden.

Professor Kimmel will be joined by biorobotics expert, Alon Wolf, whose Technion team is responsible for some of the most flexible robots available to market which can access the most testing of environments such as in the aftermath of global disasters, or to remotely and surgically disarm unexploded bombs.

Professor Ehud Rivlin will present the next phase in video indexing for surveillance, moving beyond detection and tracking of objects to detection, recognition and understanding of the activities that objects are engaged in.

The event will be introduced by Professor Abraham Marmur, the Head of the Centre for Security Science and Technology at the Technion, who will be joined by a host of UK industry experts, from the Government, armed forces, police, and global security organisations.
