EVOLUTION OF PASSENGERS SCREENING 8 Liquids Scare, August 2006 In August 2006, a United Kingdom intelligence team frustrated the efforts of a terrorist group attempting to carry out a plans to bring down several commercial transatlantic flights by using soft drinks bottles containing inert liquids, and mixing the together to create a specific liquid explosive and later detonate it during flight. “The plot apparently called for the terrorists to carry explosive ingredients disguised as beverages, and detonators made from common electronic devices like cellphones or music players. One theory is that they planned to use chemicals that are innocuous when carried separately but could be combined into an explosive mixture on board” (The Liquid Bomb Threat. (2006, August 11). Retrieved November 17, 2016, from ) As a way to control the threat while developing a scanning system for liquids only, the TSA banned the carriage of liquids momenta rely inside carry-on baggage. “The Transportation Security Administration banned virtually all liquids and gels from carry-on luggage. That includes beverages, shampoos, toothpaste and other common items — everything but baby formula and medicines, and those have to be inspected” (The Liquid Bomb Threat. (2006, August 11). Retrieved November 18, 2016, from ) As result of this incident the TSA created the 3-1-1 guidelines. Today’s security guidelines require liquid to be in a container of a maximum size of three ounces that must fit inside a quart size zipp-lock type bag, and one container/bag per passenger. Bottled liquids scanner (BLS) screening systems are in place today. “Bottled liquid screening systems are used across the nation by TSOs to detect potential liquid or gel threats that may be contained in carry- on baggage. The technology differentiates liquid explosives from common, benign liquids and is

    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.
