    Hype again

    The problem with such a small hand held neutron emitting device is penetration capacity. High energy neutrons are needed and necessary to penetrate materials that would cover explosive susbstances, like steel, concrete, aluminum...A small portable device is not feasible for the reason that the energy requirements and the sheilding necessary to protect the user would create too heavy a device.

    Hi-energy technologies is currently has a working prototype but it is something that fits in the back of a van or small truck. I think some on this board have the illusion that ISON is working on a device the size of a PDA.

    If ISON were seriously committed to this project, an investment of millions ($) instead of thousands would be necessary. I think the project is hype, and it is being utilized by the company to attract investment for its failing business.

    On the other hand I could be completely wrong
