ABSTRACT
The article discusses screening bombs in air cargo to prevent terror attacks. The existing machines include Explosives Detection Systems, which use computed tomography scans of checked baggage to create a 3D view of threat objects, and explosives trace detectors. The challenge of finding small amounts of explosives in checked baggage is similar to finding a bomb in air cargo. It is less clear what technology will be most effective for screening pallets and containers.
