Handheld security device. Detect chemicals, bombs, drugs and more in seconds.
Current biological technologies that detect drugs are not adequate in meeting the challenges posed by enhanced emerging and advance chemical agents as defined by the Homeland Security Presidential Directive. The proposed system involves the modification of the patent pending, Tolliver Probe. The system relies on smaller, faster and more precise components and state-of-the-art techniques to detect drugs and chemicals used for explosives. Additionally, the system will be able to analyze the environment for drugs, chemical and biological warfare agents and other dangerous chemicals in real-time.
Americans need to be protected in state, federal and embassy buildings, during air travel, while attending schools and at our borders. Dr. Charlie L. Tolliver at Prairie View A&M University has developed an airport security device Z-Ray Sensor system Patent #:7-605-709 B2 and the Tolliver Police Probe (TP 2004) which is a smaller hand held version of the Z-Ray Sensor security scanner. This probe system proposed here in Phase I will be more efficient and smaller allowing law enforcement groups in the field to gather and perform real-time analysis to determine the presence of harmful elements.
