Pentagon Funds Development of New Tech for Detecting ‘Dirty Bombs’

“With its supply of helium running out, the Pentagon is funding research into alternative methods for detecting the presence of possible ‘dirty bombs.’ Helium 3 gas is employed in most of the nuclear-detection systems in use today. The rare substance is currently produced as a byproduct of the radioactive decay of tritium, a material used in nuclear warheads. As helium 3 is collected from aging warheads, the supply of the gas has dwindled as the U.S. nuclear arsenal has grown smaller.”
