ABSTRACT

Hands-off Frisking: High-Tech Concealed Weapons Detection   [open pdf - 242KB]

"The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) launched an initiative to fund and field test three concealed weapons detection technologies. Each technology employs different physical principles and each has situation specific strengths and weaknesses. NIJs National Law Enforcement and Corrections Technology Center - Northeast, located near Rome, New York, provides technical and engineering support for the initiative. NIJ expects one or more of the new weapons detection technologies to be in commercial production within 3 years. The technologies, described in this document, include Passive Millimeter Wave Imaging, Low-Frequency Electromagnetic Radiation, and Magnetic Gradient Measurements."
