Mit Powers Laptops And Pdas With Chlorophyll

The technology could one day power laptops and PDAs used by security officers for remote monitoring, or it could be integrated into remote wireless security devices.At the heart of the device is a protein complex dubbed Photosystem I (PSI). Derived from spinach chloroplasts, PSI is 10 to 20 nanometers wide. Around 100,000 of them would fit on the head of a pin.

“They are the smallest electronic circuits I know of,” said researcher Marc A. Baldo, assistant professor of electronic engineering and computer science at MIT.

Sandia Detector 1000X More Sensitive

“There was nothing in the [optics] literature to predict that this would happen,” says Sandia National Laboratories researcher Dustin Carr of his group’s device, which reflects a bright light from a very small moving object.

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Like shadow pictures projected onto a wall by shining light through the fingers of one hand moving over the fingers of the other, the relatively simple measuring device depends upon a formerly unrecognized property of optics: light diffracted from very small gratings that move very small lateral distances undergoes a relatively big, and thus easily measurable, change in reflection.

Ir Buys Recognition Source

Under the Schlage brand, these innovative access control products will expand the range of IR's solutions for airports, healthcare institutions, schools and universities, corporate facilities and other applications that can benefit from faster, less costly installations.

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

"We are very excited to bring wireless technology into our portfolio," said Doug Wright, Vice President and General Manager of Electronic Control Systems for IR Security and Safety. "The business case for deploying the new Schlage wireless system in networked openings is compelling."

Actual installations demonstrate a wireless solution can have a substantially lower installed cost than an online access control system. Wireless systems use less hardware and install five to ten times faster.

Asis To Honour Adt Oldest Exhibitor

ADT, which has been in business for 129 years, is the largest provider of electronic security services to nearly six million commercial, government and residential customers throughout the <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />United States.

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

"ADT is the only organization that has been an exhibitor throughout ASIS International's 50-year history of Annual Seminars," said Shirley Pierini, president of ASIS International. "We are proud to recognize ADT for its loyal and steadfast support of our organization."

ADT was one of 11 vendors that exhibited at the first show held in Washington, D.C. in 1955, when the latest security solutions were limited to business applications and consisted mainly of sensors, locks and manual alarms.

Scotland Yard Links To Interpol Comms

The agreement, which was jointly signed by Interpol Secretary General Ronald K. Noble and Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir John Stevens, will result in closer collaboration between the two organizations in a number of areas.

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Police in <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />London will now be able to use Interpol's global communications system, I-24/7, which is a high security system using the Internet as a 'tunnel' for encrypted data. It enables users to access Interpol's databases including those on fingerprints, DNA, stolen travel documents and terrorist intelligence stored at the General Secretariat in Lyon, France.

Csiro Researchers Develop Magnetometer For Needle Search

The team, based at Lindfield in <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Sydney, can pick up a piece of a hypodermic needle less than one millimetre long at a distance of five centimetres.

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

“Conventional hand-held metal detectors couldn’t find the whole needle at half that distance,” says project leader Dr Marcel Bick, who’s been running the proof of concept experiments.

“We can even detect needles wrapped in aluminium foil, which is something a standard metal detector has lots of difficulty with,” he adds.

The team has achieved great success, even finding fragments weighing less than a milligram, because their device is no ordinary metal detector: “It’s a SQUID magnetometer,” says Dr Cathy Foley, who heads up CSIRO’s work on SQUIDs.

Voice Over Ip Is In Law EnforcementS Sights

The solution allows VOIP transmissions, which have been inaccessible to law enforcement agencies, to be logged and tapped in the same way telephone signals can be.

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

PacketCable represents the cable industry's interoperable interface specifications for a wide variety of services. PacketCable networks use Internet Protocol (IP) technology to offer services such as Voice over IP, otherwise known as IP telephony.

"The latest issue of this technical specification represents a milestone in the cable industry's efforts to address law enforcement's concerns regarding VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) services made available by cable companies," said Kerry Haynes, FBI Assistant Director responsible for Investigative Technologies.
