NATO and Algeria strengthen scientific cooperation


Within the framework of the NATO Science for Peace and Security Programme (SPS), experts from Algeria, France, and Sweden have developed the first terahertz imaging technology in North Africa. This scanning system will enable the detection of dangerous materials, such as firearms and explosives, and will thus have potential applications in the protection of vulnerable sites from terrorist threats.

This new terahertz imaging technology was inaugurated at a virtual ribbon cutting ceremony with NATO officials, representatives from Algeria, France, and Sweden, as well as the multinational group of scientists who led the research. NATO Assistant Secretary General for Emerging Security Challenges, David van Weel, and General Serir Aomar, Dean of the Ecole Militaire Polytechnique in Algeria, participated from NATO Headquarters and Algiers, respectively.
