Jared Hartzman Airport Security Briefing Currently, the passenger screening process involves flagging individuals on flight- screening lists compiled by airlines, people exhibiting odd behavior, and persons selected at random, adding another security element to the existing metal detector. This however may only deter criminals and terrorists. Increased technology can will lead to more secure airports. Even though more research and development needs to be done in regards to the technology needed for improved airport security, there are presently several technologies available which, if implemented, can greatly improve the security of our airports. Some such technologies are Backscatter X-rays, the Z-Backscatter, a Millimeter Wave Device, Puffers, Radio Frequency ID tags, Missile Jammers, the Collision Avoidance System, the Vehicle and Cargo Inspection System, and Biometrics. Backscatter X-rays are used to perform a full body scan in search of abnormalities. It’s fast and is able to detect anything from blades to drugs. While this technology seems to be extremely effective it poses a privacy problem, the scanners see through clothing.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
