Abstract:

This is an effort resulting from BAA 98-05, Expert Science and Engineering Program, dated 28 Jan 98. The objective of the effort was to evaluate a variety of technologies that could be applied to Counter-Terrorism including explosives detectors, weapons detection systems, and body cavity contraband systems. Tasks included identification and coordination with law enforcement agencies to participate in prototype testing, demonstration and evaluation of counter-terrorism technologies, development and implementation of an assessment plan for the prototype testing of counter-terrorism technologies, gathering additional assessment information on counter terrorism technologies, and recommendations for further development and improvements to counter-terrorism technologies. Data collection and analysis was performed on the RV2OOO impulse radar and its effectiveness in Through-the-Wall Surveillance.
