A U.S. firm used Israeli technology to develop a device that scans 1,000 pieces of luggage an hour.
Anyone who has been through the rather unpleasant experience of waiting in line to go through a security check at airports or at the entrance to mass public events should be happy to hear about the screening device invented by Dr. Alysia Sagi-Dolev. She is the founder and CEO of Qylur Security Systems, a high-tech company in Silicon Valley just outside San Francisco. Based on Israeli technology, the company is developing a new device for screening hand luggage. The company's name derives from a mole with many sensors on its unique nose that enable it to prepare for what lies ahead.
