New Technologies Could Improve Airport Screening

Security screening at U.S. airports is expanding beyond searches for knives or liquid explosives to determining the intent of a would-be criminal through next-generation monitoring systems and analyzing culturally independent behavioral cues. Currently in the testing phase, the technologies should dramatically improve the safety, speed and efficiency of a trip through the airport.

Last month, experts in sensor technology, behavioral screening and biometrics discussed the latest developments in airport security in a telephone interview hosted by the National Science Foundation. The show is now available online in its entirety.

Moderated by NSF's Richard McCourt, the Sept. 28, program featured Richard Donovan from Montana Tech of the University of Montana, Butte; Mark Frank from the University at Buffalo; and Arun Ross from West Virginia University.

The call-in program audio file is available here; the transcript is available here.
