The new system is expected to be more efficient in detecting the faces of terrorists that might be lurking in crowds, locating concealed weapons or identifying explosive devices in subways or airports. Since the surveillance system that makes use of 3D technology could harvest much more and better information it could be a key weapon in maintaining peace and security. The news report on its functions goes: Continue reading
