Call for Volunteers

The Awareness and Localization of Explosives Related Threats (ALERT) program at Northeastern University employs an Advanced Imaging Technology (AIT) lab in the Egan building on Campus. In this lab there are technologies used to image the surface of the human body, very similar to the systems used at airports worldwide today. We are exploring combinations of imaging techniques in order to determine optimum detection of threats capabilities. The types of technologies (Video, Radar, X-ray, thermal imaging, and passive nuclear quadrapole resonance) have all been proven to be safe for human exposure. We are now in the testing phase of this research. We are calling out now for volunteers willing to be imaged by these technologies.
