Advances in Sensing with Security Applications (NATO Science by Jim Byrnes

By Jim Byrnes

The fusion of uncomplicated principles in arithmetic, biology, and chemistry with ongoing advancements in and computation deals the promise of even more subtle and exact sensing functions than at the moment exist. Coupled with the dramatic upward push within the want for surveillance in innumerable points of our day-by-day lives, led to by way of adversarial acts deemed incredible just a couple of brief years in the past, the time is ripe for scientists within the diversified components of sensing and safety to hitch jointly in a concerted attempt to strive against the recent manufacturers of terrorism. The contents of this quantity could be divided into 3 greatly outlined yet interrelated parts: The expanding want for speedy and exact sensing – what's the chance; The clinical underpinnings of the continuing revolution in sensing; particular sensing algorithms and methods. A deep knowing of those 3 themes, and in their interdependency, is obviously the most important to satisfy the expanding sophistication of these who desire to do us damage. The individuals to this quantity are some of the world's major specialists within the improvement of latest methodologies to either understand and are expecting those threats and to successfully care for them. The ASI introduced jointly those global leaders from academia, executive and undefined, with vast multidisciplinary backgrounds evidenced via their examine and participation in several workshops and meetings.

However, because North Korea has nuclear, chemical and biological weapons capabilities and has supplied ballistic missile technology to other state sponsors of terrorism, it is unclear whether North Korea might provide materiel or technology for CBRN weapons to terrorist groups [57]. North Korea’s primary motivation for selling ballistic missile technology to countries such as Iran and Syria appears to be the need for hard currency as opposed to specific anti-Western aims. 38 ADVANCES IN SENSING Syria has not directly participated in any known terrorist acts since 1986; however, Syria provides support and refuge for Hamas, the PIL, and the PFLP, among other Palestinian liberation groups.

When the former Chief of JI in Singapore was arrested, he told investigators he 32 ADVANCES IN SENSING had been planning to hijack an Aeroflot plane from Bangkok and crash it into Singapore’s main airport in 2002 to teach Russia a lesson — a clear emulation of the September 11 attacks. Further, the Bali attacks were both the first mass fatality and first suicide attack perpetrated by a Southeast Asian terrorist group — both as a result of contact with al Qaeda [24]. 6 Threat of Individuals Individuals acting without the support of a specific group, and who may sympathize with al Qaeda, the Palestinian cause, environmental causes or other grievances against the United States and its policies domestically or overseas also pose a threat.
