sniffer mice are being trained in israel to detect explosives at airports
The fight between mice and terrorists intensified and rodents could be recruited to protect the sky.
An Israeli security company claims that mice can detect explosives more effectively than people, dogs or machines.

Future airport security checkpoints will deploy small furry creatures to trap terrorists. Vice President of the company

He is now working on what he calls the most complex explosion detection system ever-Mouse-centered.
\"In terms of their perceived abilities, they are as good as dogs, but they are smaller and easier to train,\" said Mr Amsterdam . \".
\"They are cheap and you don\'t have to take them for a walk.
Once they are trained, they become creatures. sensors.
\"Instead of running around the passengers and their luggage, the mice are locked in cages at the security checkpoint.
They will be careful to sniff people and items they have been trained to identify and signal when a threat is found.
Because mice can train a lot through machines, they can produce more reliable results, says Mr Amsterdam.
The current aviation security is full of loopholes.
It relies on metal detectors and X.

Only a small number of passengers were selected for an explosion trace test, which included wiping surfaces such as a laptop keyboard or cabin
Bag the zipper and test the cotton swab in the explosive trace detector.
Developers want mice to be able to identify individuals with explosives implanted in the body-a key threat to aircraft considered in the industry.
Philip Baum, editor of aviation safety International, welcomed the innovation: \"We currently do not have explosive detection capabilities on the portal, nor do we have a recognized method of detecting\" internal carriers\"
The mouse could block that security hole.
Currently, none of the UK airports are planning to recruit rodents to track terrorists, but they may be the \"risks that are emerging-
\"-Based\" security approach in which an individual is pre-described and assigned a risk profile.
Passengers with an unusual travel history may be more interested than their families.
The industry is moving to the \"dynamic lane\" concept of the airport checkpoint where passengers no longer need to separate laptops and liquids from their bags and take off their belts and shoes.
Specific safety measures depend on the risk conditions of passengers.
Adrienne Gibbs, executive manager of the IATA smart security program, said at the agency search 2015 meeting at Heathrow airport last week: \"We are challenging industry and technology providers, let them think about how to apply additional security layers without letting passengers feel they are being targeted.
Mr. Amsterdam also believes that the deployment of mice may not be merely a discovery of the threat of combating smuggling: \"We can teach them anything that smells-whether it\'s explosives or drugs, whether it\'s ivory or not in Africa.
Anything that smells.
