Alert 101: Airport Screening Technologies

Here’s a great video pro­duced by the DHS Center of Excel­lence, ALERT, or Aware­ness and Local­iza­tion of Explosives-​​Related Threats (what is it about engi­neers and acronyms?!). ALERT 101 is a new series fea­turing the center’s unique tech­nolo­gies and research areas. This one explains mil­limeter wave and back scatter air­port screening sys­tems. For more info on the first, check out this post that I wrote back in March and listen to pro­fessor Carey Rap­port dis­cuss it on Aca­d­emic Minute. Enjoy!
