EQUIPMENT FOR FIGHTING TERRORISM INVENTED BY BULGARIAN SCIENTISTS
Bulgarian experts from the Center for Aviation Security and Consultations (opened on September 11) demonstrated their new inventions for increasing the security of aircraft transportation. Among the inventions is the scanner for checking passengers' luggage, which won golden medals at the exhibitions of innovations in Brussels and Moscow last year. It is unique of its kind for detecting dangerous substances and objects not only by their form (such as are the possibilities of ordinary X-ray apparata) but also by the material they are made of. Thus, even explosives hidden in a laptop or another object can be found, the expert from the center Georgi Stefanov explained. The invention is to be licensed and patended and opportunities for its apllication at Bulgarian airports will be sought afterwards. According to representatives of the Ministry of Transport and Telecommunciations, there are chances for reaching agreements with foreign airports as well.
