A major goal of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and now the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), is the development of technologies for detecting explosives and illegal drugs in freight cargo and passenger luggage. One such technology is pulsed fast neutron analysis (PFNA). This technology is based on detection of signature radiation (gamma rays) induced in material scanned by ......

This National Materials Advisory Board study, sponsored by the Federal Aviation Administration, is assessing the practicality of pulsed fast neutron analysis (PFNA) for detecting explosives and other contraband in cargo and passenger baggage in an airport. The capabilities of PFNA are compared with the capabilities of explosives-detection equipment currently available for deployment and with the e......

This book addresses new technologies being considered by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for screening airport passengers for concealed weapons and explosives. The FAA is supporting the development of promising new technologies that can reveal the presence not only of metal-based weapons as with current screening technologies, but also detect plastic explosives and other non-metallic thr......

This report examines alternative methods for detection of explosives in commercial aviation. The report s primary conclusion is thatthere does not appear to be any single detection technology that can provide the levels of sensitivity and specificity that will have both a significant effect on reducing the threat and an acceptable impact on airport operations. The report analyzes a number of detec......

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) was created as a separate entity under the Department of Transportation by the passage of the Air Transportation Security Act in 2001. This act also mandated that as of December 31, 2002, all checked baggage on U.S. flights be scanned by explosive detection systems (EDSs) for the presence of a potential explosive threat. As a result of the need to d......
