On the passenger screening side, TSA in 2006 spent $534 million to buy and develop explosives detection technology. The agency is also reinforcing its improvised explosive device training it first began in fall 2005.
One article discusses explosives detection technology tools, such as gas chromatography-ion mobility spectrometry, which the author calls "one of the most sophisticated and effective trace detection technologies commercially available today." New technologies are also explored, including laser technology for the "touchless" detection of explosive residues.
The L-3 EDS products, which use medical grade imaging technology, provide automated and continuous flow CT capabilities using advanced explosives detection technology. The manufacturer says its products have some of the lowest false alarm rates in the industry and adds its lightweight and reduced-size to medium- and high-speed systems to accelerate the movement of passengers and bags.
The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Md., has signed an agreement with Link Plus Corporation of Columbia, Md., granting worldwide, exclusive rights to its "molecularly imprinted polymer" explosives detection technology.
Explosives detection technology is making headway with regard to cost, speed, and capabilities.
