ABSTRACT
The article discusses the status of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) Advanced Spectroscopic Portal (ASP) program. ASP is a new-generation of radiation portal monitors to be used in ports of entry. According DHS under secretary for Science and Technology Tara O'Toole, DHS is facing difficulties in developing ASP. O'Toole said that DHS has not yet scheduled an operational testing phase for ASP because it may not procure the new portal monitors.
