Reveal Imaging completes study on liquid and home made explosives

Reveal Imaging : 05 February, 2009  (Technical Article)
Comprehensive study on liquid and home made explosives results in comprehensive database being developed on the subject
Reveal Imaging Technologies has announced the results of a two-year study on liquid and homemade explosives (HME) that was conducted in collaboration with US and international security regulators and explosives experts from four different countries. This extensive study focused on detection of these defined threats in real world operational environments and involved scanning over 8,000 international bags containing hundreds of samples of liquid and HMEs.

"This study has resulted in the creation of the single most comprehensive database of its kind," said Michael Ellenbogen, president and CEO, Reveal. "Working with international regulators gave us unprecedented access to sample explosives in a wide variety of configurations. The data collected represents a cross section of explosive configurations and packing scenarios based on intelligence from around the globe."

The airport liquid ban has caused significant passenger service issues and hardship to duty free commerce. "We are committed to safeguarding airlines and their passengers while maximizing operational efficiencies and the passenger experience," said Ellenbogen. "We have used the extensive data collected to develop an algorithm on the Reveal Explosive Detection System (EDS) platform capable of non-intrusively detecting the full range of threats highlighted by this study in passenger checked and carry-on baggage. What this means to airports and airline passengers is that baggage containing liquids, cleared by any member of Reveal's EDS family, can now be safely and confidently carried aboard aircraft."

Reveal's TSA-certified family of Dual Energy CT scanners accurately measures both density and effective atomic number of every object in a passenger's bag. Testing of the new algorithm demonstrates the ability to reliably detect a very wide range of liquid and HMEs, in conjunction with the more traditional military and commercial explosives, with a low false alarm rate and without opening passenger bags.
