Editors: Andre E. Bouchard
Book Description:
Responding to the need to reliably detect explosives, bomb-making components, and other potential security threats concealed by airline passengers, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has focused on the deployment of whole body scanners and checked-baggage-screening as core elements of its strategy for airport checkpoint screening. This book examines the new technology elements and considerations relating to airport baggage and passenger screening with a focus on advanced imaging technology and explosives detection requirements.
