  • Containment system

    If you're in Israel, you might as well check out the latest in bulletproof vests and unmanned aerial vehicles. This week, the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Labor is holding Security Israel, which covers the latest in security equipment. It's a little different than tech trade shows. The exhibitors start serving beer at 11 a.m. and a lot of the attendees are in uniform.

    Here, the Gaza 4 containment system from Mistral Systems. Police put suspicious packages inside to remove them from airports or train stations.

    "It's gas-tight in case you have a gas bomb," explained Mistral's Robi Koren. "We are the leaders in blast management, from letter bombs to safe removal."

    It's a garbage can, and a blast containment receptacle. Approximately 10,000 of these garbage cans have been installed in places like Logan Airport and O'Hare Airport and all along the Boston-New York Amtrak line. The idea is that terrorists may try to put a bomb in a trash can someday, but may not realize it's not a standard trash can. Bomb fragments will not come out the sides. The cans cost from $1,000 to $7,000, depending on the strength.
