The NYT says that the company claims it can find "even contraband ivory at distances up to 1km".
... they have a site dedicated to ADE 651!
Scam site from the people who ripped off the Iraqi government. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/11/04/world/middleeast/04sensors.html
Belive or not but they have a site dedicated to ADE 651!I have readed almost all their sciencific explination and understand nothing. Is there someoane who can explain what is that? Is this possible?
It seems to me that, rather than the mules, we should use the directors of the company that makes the product. They can use their product to find a safe path if they like.

AirT - I would be delighted if this was how the arms industry worked. If you had read the thread you would have realised that this detector is a complete fraud and had no chance of ever working. Arms based on mystical and mythical forces would be a distinct improvement over the sort that kill people.
Wake up folks, this is how the arms industry works. It's not about ethics or morality, it's all about the money.
Do weapon detectors that work actually exist? The technology is there, the electronic noses, electromagnetic sensors.
In fact this was posted on TNS in 2009... Why does the complaint claim that the devices were sold to the British and Iraqi military between 2008 and 2010 (one assumes inclusive).Although, if Mr. McCormick's device lead to the death of anybody, he should be charged with homicide (pre-meditated? negligent homicide?) Without a doubt, there will be lawsuits following this decision.
It works on the placebo effect: If you think it's a bomb detector, you won't take your bomb there....And if you think it might find you, you might look extra tense, and an observant operator will look more closely at you, causing you to get even more tense...
Now, one might say that these devices were in fact extremely effective as a deterrents. Kind of like putting in a dummy camera system that doesn't monitor a store, but would-be thieves would think twice before committing a crime, not that it prevents all crimes, as cameras, of course, only monitor crimes.
