Effective Container inspection at border control points
C-BORD has developed and tested a modular system of new and enhanced technologies for the Non-Intrusive Inspection (NII) of cargo containers. The system is adaptable to different types of border checkpoints and with a single user interface for Customs decision-making. The system combines X-ray, Passive Radiation Detection, Evaporation Based Detection, Tagged Neutron and Photo-fission. The main objective of C-BORD is to demonstrate that the complementary technologies used in combination can provide more complete information to the customs analyst, thus reducing false alarm rates and the unnecessary opening of containers.
