Project #54438 - Screening Technologies, Part Two (Part 1)


In this assignment you will continue to build on your research of screening methods and technologies, one of the most visible aspects of a layered security program. Whereas your research in the previous module focused on passenger screening, this module will emphasize both carry-on and checked baggage screening.


In this module, part two of this assignment, you will research one type of baggage screening method or technology and use your research to create a profile your classmates will view. The profile will be a 1 to 2-page information sheet that highlights basic information on the method or technology. Complete part two and turn in your assignment by doing the following:
