Wired News: DIY Nuke Detector Patrols SF Bay

With just $12,000 worth of gear, this inventor patrols San Fransisco in this Wired article, for a lot less than the scanners DHS is buying.

While Glaros’ homemade detector can be mounted practically anywhere, the team’s preferred platform is one or more of the pilot boats that meet container ships offshore. A pilot boat will typically meet a ship up to 12 miles out, giving the detector ample opportunity to gather data, and law enforcement a chance to respond.

For his part, Glaros has no doubt the United States will be attacked. “I’ve been in this business since SALT I. It’s gonna happen; it’s just a question of when…. I have a young daughter in San Francisco. That’s the main reason I got into this project.”
