Dogs in bomb-detecting harnesses help NYPD patrol the city

The technology is called TREDD, which stands forTransit Enhanced Detection Dog.

It takes the idea of the bomb-sniffing dog to a whole new level.

TREDD is an advanced explosive detection system. It pairs canines trained in explosives detection with special harnesses equipped with electronics.

“.What I found in the intelligence … is that international terror organizations like al Qaeda, ISIS and many others were intentionally creating a gap in our detection capability specific to the dog,” le dijo a Fox News.

They were kind of gearing it to avoid detection by a dog.

They were starting to create unconventional explosive devices, things that they knew — because they study us — that these dogs cannot detect. Normal explosives like TNT and C-4 and dynamite, they know that these dogs can detect. So they went a different route.

The sensors on the dog’s harness send readings to a mobile command post in real time.
