Surface Transportation Program Fact Sheet


To defend the surface transportation network against explosive threats, public safety officials (including Mass Transit Operators, Mass Transit Police, State, Local and Federal law enforcement) need a capability to detect potential threat items on persons and in bags without negatively impacting the speed of travel. The Surface Transportation Explosive Threat Detection Program’s goal is to provide the surface transportation end-user community with a layered and integrated capability to safely detect potential threat items in unstructured crowds, while maintaining individual privacy.
