Screening at Speed:
Ensuring That Security Matches the Pace of Life
In an ideal world...screening at speed will provide for comprehensive threat protection while adapting security to the pace of life rather than life to security. Unobtrusive screening of people, baggage, or cargo will enable the seamless detection of threats while respecting privacy, with minimal impact to the pace of travel and speed of commerce.
Screening systems can detect explosives, bolster chemical and biological defense, and enhance borders and maritime security for both traditional and non-traditional checkpoints. As the movement of people and goods continues to increase in volume, the development of innovative technology solutions are critical, requiring continued collaboration between universities, industry, and a wide array of first responders, airport and mass transit personnel, and the federal government. How can we work together to accomplish the ideal state?
Screening at speed for explosives, chemical and biological agents, and illegal human activity (such as contraband smuggling) encompasses the following four main areas:
Borders and Maritime Security
Mass Transit Security
