Scientist details method of detecting WMD

Scientist proposes new way of detecting concealed weapons of mass destruction

January 29, 2003

PALM BEACH, Fla., Jan. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- If Iraq has weapons of mass destruction well concealed, United Nations weapons inspectors may face great difficulty in finding them.

But there is a way to determine where these weapons are, even if they're concealed and even if Iraq does not cooperate, according to Richard R. Sills, a computer scientist from New York and Palm Beach who has patented an "Analog Processing System" (APS) which re-analyzes the visual data coming from observation satellites through the process of "spectrometry."

In late summer of 2002, Mr. Sills made a presentation to Dr. Leslie J. Deutsch, the Chief Engineer of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) at the California Institute of Technology. The terms of the meeting were that Mr. Sills would not receive any compensation, nor would he be exposed to any "sensitive" information. The proposed technology was considered for a few months and then on November 6, 2002, in a letter to Mr. Sills, the "Analog Processing System" was ostensibly turned down by the JPL.

This letter poses serious concerns as to why the U.S. is not providing specific evidence to verify Iraq's possession of these weapons, even if hidden by any means, if we have "other techniques" to do so, as Dr. Deutsch clearly states in his letter. This APS would seem to be the exact method the President and the UN need to locate nuclear bombs and biological warfare agents, hence, it is now being offered to the world scientific community.
