Using technology to detect hidden threats

(University of Delaware) A research group at the University of Delaware has received a five-year, $1 million grant from the US Army Research Office to develop technology that will help soldiers detect explosive devices from a distance. The group is creating an augmented reality system that will use traditional cameras, thermal infrared sensing and ground penetrating radar to find and classify potentially dangerous objects from up to 30 meters away.
