Bombing commuters just got harder – NATO/Russia unveil new technology



It is a world first: technology developed by NATO and Russian scientists was able to pinpoint a suspect and detect explosives concealed on their body. This was achieved in real time during live tests in an undisclosed underground station in a major European city. The Stand-off Detection of Explosives Programme, known as STANDEX, could help prevent terrorist attacks such as those carried out on the London, Madrid and Moscow public transport systems.
NATOChannel cameras were given exclusive access to the tests, which show the technology in action and the views of some of the NATO and Russian experts involved in the programme. To view this video, please click the link below:

 Women, peace and security
NATO and its partners are taking concerted action to support implementation of United Nations Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1325, which was adopted in October 2000.
