The suicide bomber attack at Moscow's airport, which killed dozens of people, could have been defeated if the airport security authorities had installed standoff suicide terrorist detection technologies equipment in front of the airport entrances. These systems detect the terrorist's explosives at a safe distance and automatically close the airport terminal gates, preventing the terrorist's entrance until the cause of the alarm cleared.
The threat posed by suicide bombers like the Moscow airport attack is the key to the emergence of transformational counter-terror technologies. The maturity and deployment of several standoff technologies, capable of detecting suicide and other terrorists at a safe distance, will change the landscape of homeland security and the war against terror.
According to Homeland Security Research “Global Standoff Terrorist Detection Technologies & Markets 2010-2014” report, this market (including systems sales, maintenance and upgrades) is forecasted to grow exponentially from US$540 million in 2010 to $6.3 billion by 2014.
