A shoe scanner may allow people passing through security screening to keep their shoes on. PNNL built the scanner based on the same technology it used to develop airport scanners. It's licensed to Liberty Defense.
PNNL deployed two research buoys in waters off the West Coast for the first time in deep water, supporting a DOE and Bureau of Ocean Energy Management effort to gather measurements that support offshore wind locations and technologies.
Five PNNL technologies were recently awarded six R&D 100 honors. The R&D 100 Awards, now in its 58th year, recognize pioneers in science and technology from industry, the federal government, and academia.
A technology that can quickly detect explosive vapors, deadly chemicals and illicit drugs with unparalleled accuracy has been named the 2020 Innovation of the Year by GeekWire, the Seattle-based technology news company.
PNNL is managing the Data Archive and Portal, which provides the wind research community with secure, timely, easy, and open access to all data brought in from research under DOE’s Atmosphere to Electrons program.
