Paper Abstract

Effective, routine field use of the K920B `Buster' Contraband Detector has been achieved as the result of a program of close cooperation between the development engineers and the field users wherein the field users were brought in as a part of the development process. Initial field application attempts were unsuccessful when single units, with only basic training, were shipped to a single port of entry for one or two months of experimental use and where then shipped on to another port. After review of the initial experience, the field application development concept was changed. The program prospered when multiple units, combined with comprehensive training, were shipped to a few selected ports on a permanent basis and assigned to interested and innovative field inspectors who were given the challenge and the opportunity to develop field application procedures. The field users, given freedom to experiment, have expanded the initial concept of the Buster Contraband Detector, developing unforseen techniques to achieve unexpected goals. As a result of the close cooperation between the development engineers and the field users, this new high technology device has now become a commonplace and effective field tool.
