EXPLOSIVE DETECTION FOR AIRLINE USE
Report of Operational test with the Model 97 explosive detector at Logan International Airport, in conjunction with Northwest Airlines and the FAA 15-16 February 1989.
The tests were conducted in two phases. Phase one screened checked baggage bound for international destinations. Phase two tested carry-on items on both domestic and overseas flights. Each phase took place on a separate day with average volumes of passengers booked on the flights.
Statistics from each phase were recorded separately and are shown that way in this report. Collectively, these statistics provide valuable information and will help in the design of better
airport security systems.
