“Equipment in two trailers sniffed out nuclear materials today on cars and trucks boarding the Bolivar Ferry in the first field test of the device in a maritime setting, a Homeland Security official said.

The transportable radiation monitoring system, or TRMS, began screening cars entering the ferry from Galveston Island for the first full-day of an eight-day trial, said Cpt. Jim Bamberger, Transportation Safety Agency branch chief.” (Houston Chronicle)
