SAVER Project: Walk-Through Screening for Mass Casualty Threats
Emergency responders and security personnel use walk-through screening systems, including metal detectors, for mass casualty threats to enhance safety and security at soft target locations. Soft target locations are areas that are easily accessible to large numbers of people and have limited security or protective measures in place, making them vulnerable to violent attacks with the potential for mass casualties. Soft target locations, such as transportation hubs and entertainment venues, present unique security challenges due to their inherent accessibility and high foot traffic.
