ABSTRACT
The article reports on the search for a commercial partner by Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) for the development and certification of a screening system for bottled liquids. The system will offer greater capabilities for detecting explosives than Bottled Liquid Screeners (BLS) being purchased by the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA). MagViz BLS prototypes from LANL were demonstrated at a passenger checkpoint at an international airport.
