GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. (CBS4) – The DoubleTree Hotel in Greenwood Village was the site of a sneak peek Tuesday for some new technology that could keep American soldiers safer overseas.

IEDs are the No. 1 cause for death and injury to American troops.

The device can also see inside the trunk of cars, cargo containers and railroad cars.
