A Western Kentucky University math professor has been working with a Bowling Green technology company, to develop a software product he hopes will help detect explosives in airports, drugs, and contraband, and help protect the military from explosive devices.
Professor Bruce Kessler developed an algorithm that programmers and software developers at Hitcents.com converted into programming languages that make the software accessible through any computer environment.
"The impact I hope to make is to make it easier to detect things like contraband that should not be in people's luggage," Kessler says.
Peaklet Analysis software analyzes data collected by low-level radiation generated when items such as luggage or explosives are scanned.
The university says WKU Research Foundation and Hitcents representatives are meeting next month with a security screening equipment manufacturer.
