Paper Abstract

This paper describes the plan for the assessment of the second generation X-ray inspection systems based on direct transmission, dual view, dual energy and backscatter technology. The purpose of this assessment is to determine the performance of each of these systems based on the analysis of the data on the detection of cocaine and heroin. The results of this assessment will be of immense value to law enforcement agencies in helping them select the type of X-ray inspection system best suited for their particular application.
