ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the plan of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology to conduct a limited user evaluation of a multi-sensor screening solution that will automatically determine if somebody intends to do something bad by measuring their physiological and behavioral indicators. The plan is part of the Future Attribute Screening Technology (FAST) program. According to Bob Middleton, program manager for FAST, it is an opportunity to observe how a potential user of the screening technology might use it and obtain their feedback.
