The article offers world news briefs. University of Bath, England, has developed computer algorithms which will help enhance the accuracy of Iris scanning technology for making biometric passports in future. BAE Systems is planning to build an l8m pounds global hub for unmanned air vehicles design, development and testing in Australia. Great Britain's only railway test track at Asfordsby in the Midlands is likely to close down in January, despite the offer by its operator, Alstom SA, to the government to use the facility free of charge.
