The use of radiation detectors embedded into cell phones is not a new concept.
Polismart ( http://polismart.com/ ) has developed this concept
sometime ago. I' have not seen them, played with them, or heard of
them in use. But the units have always caught my interest.
I believe the difference here is to embed a simple device (not taken
up much space) that would relay the information and location to
decision makers without the user actively knowing and based on a grid
approach (distance to source and reading) triangulate to the position
of the source to enable appropriate response and resources. (speculation)
One item of note or question would be the availability of cell
phone/bluetooth during an actual event.
