The NPS DataHub allows forensic chemists to share data on new drug analogs, including their chemical structures and signatures, which are the keys to identifying them in the lab. Identifying drugs quickly is critical. 'If people start overdosing and dying from a new drug analog, authorities need to identify it as quickly as possible,' said NIST research chemist Aaron Urbas. 'To focus your resources effectively, you need to know what you're looking for.'

Hunters don camouflage clothing to blend in with their surroundings. But thermal camouflage - or the appearance of being the same temperature as one's environment - is much more difficult.
