    Phuket to spend Bt1m on drug detection technology

    Province to spend Bt1m on drug detection technology

    The Alpha 6 is a hand-held drug and explosives detection device that uses molecular resonance technology.

    TA CHAT CHAI, PHUKET: Phuket Governor Wichai Phraisa-ngop has approved the purchase of two state-of-the-art detection devices, one for explosives and the other for contraband. The devices will be used at the Ta Chat Chai checkpoint.

    The Alpha 6 detectors, which cost around 500,000 baht each, use “molecular resonance” technology to detect the presence of drugs and explosives from up to 300 meters away.

    Suthee Sirianun, an officer with the Phuket Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation, says that procurement procedures mean that it would take around one month to acquire the devices.

    ASLM Trading Co Ltd demonstrated the Alpha 6 to former Phuket Governor Preecha Ruangjan and Phuket Provincial Police Commander Apirak Hongtong at Phuket Provincial Police Station around two months ago.

    The demonstration showed that the devices were successful in locating hidden drugs around 70% of the time.

    “At Ta Chat Chai checkpoint, we’re also going to use two American pit-bull terrier sniffer dogs to find drugs,” Mr Suthee added.

    Maybe it's to make sure that the revenue from illegal contraband is distributed correctly ......

    The cops will now be able to stop the competition from importing and selling drugs on their turf, all thanks to the Thai taxpayer.

    OK ! So they are doing something to try and control the situation .
    BUT
    Who are going to operate the things ??

    Cant be the BIB cos their ammo will be sniffed as Explosives.
    Also the BIB are not totally unconnected with the illegal substances trade, and no doubt will have traces of their latest confiscation in their pockets.

    That rules them out then

    It would seem that the operators will have to be unarmed and squeaky clean, and, should a terrorist with half a ton of Semtex hidden underneath sackfulls of wakky baccky turn up , they will have to contact the BIB - 300 meters away - to ask for backup.

    By which time the evil ones would have pissed off into the distance !

    But it's worse,...

    Let us see how many other falsehoods we can count in their sales literature!
    • The ALPHA 6 is a revolutionary product for search and detection of specific contraband substances. The ALPHA 6 is available in two variants, explosive detector and narcotic detector.
    • The ALPHA 6 Detection System is a totally unique method of locating contraband in any conditions and from a range of up to 300m. The ALPHA 6 works on "Molecular Resonance" and the ALPHA 6 system uses molecular recognition of programmed contrabands.
    • The ALPHA 6 is completely passive and has no ill effects on the operators. Nothing can block the molecular tracking of the ALPHA 6 and therefore the ALPHA 6 will find contraband when dogs are fooled by surrounding odors. ALPHA 6 will work from greater range and in conditions where vapor detectors will not.
    • The ALPHA 6 is the end product of many years of research into molecular behavior. Whilst the theory is not new, similar technology powers Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanners, the application of the theory into proven technology is the breakthrough of the Alpha 6.
    • The ALPHA 6 consists of four parts. An inductor, a conductor and an oscillator which are built into the handle of molecules oscillate at a specific frequency.
    • The oscillator within the ALPHA 6 is programmed to oscillate at the same frequency as that of the substance to be located. The oscillator within the ALPHA 6 is powered by the static electricity that is generated in the human body when breathing occurs. These currents are inducted into the ALPHA 6, causing the oscillator, pre-programmed to oscillate at the specific resonant frequency of the search substance.
    • Power comes from a transfer of static electricity generated in the human body. The ALPHA 6 then relies on another known physical law. Any charged body in motion generates a magnetic field perpendicular to the direction of motion. This is the principle that all electric motors and generators operate on. Therefore when either the operator or the search substance is in motion, ALPHA 6 will detect the repulsion between the handle and the search substance and will point along the magnetic field generated due to the motion. It is this repulsion that allows the ALPHA 6 to indicate towards a search substance. In simple terms, the molecules in the handle are attracted towards the molecules in the substance resulting in the indication through the antenna.
    As pointed out by a reader of James Randi's site, the Alpha 6 looks to be made from the exact same plastic mould used for the infamous Quadro Tracker, which was renamed the MOLE tracker after the company moved to Britain when the FBI raided the US headquarters. In fact, the ADE series of detectors also look nearly identical.

    The Alpha 6 detectors, which cost around 500,000 baht each,
    I must remember to email him about the big bag of magic beans I have, available at a very unreasonable price.

    This is the same gov who wanted to build a really high, grotesquely ugly tower in Krabi to " draw in tourists."
    He's planning on inflicting this nightmare on Phuket

    Beans for brains .

    I think a couple of decent dogs would do the same job, of course they have to care for treat the dogs in a humane manner , so I guess it would be impossible.

    It basically functions like a dowsing rod. Read the test results (double-blind) by the US Navy for the Sniffex (same product, same company). It's a crock. Same results as a dowser +/- 10% accuracy.

    Yes Iom the alpha 6 is part of the gang of frauds that dowsing rods can detect drugs or explosives.
    Sadly many countries with weak import controls or where corruption is rife are buying into these scams. Our research has shown that these devices can be made for as little as $250 and are then sold for up to, $30,000 which of course includes the bribe.
    We are continually commenting on these frauds wherever we find them, blogs, newspaper reports etc.
    Thank you all for keeping the fact that these devices are totall frauds in the public domain.
    regards
