Huge amounts of materials pass through portals daily to enter assets, such as government buildings. A rapid yet comprehensive system is necessary to scan all of these materials as passively as possible to obtain maximum protection from all manner of threats.
 

  Possible Detection Technology
  •  Small box or luggage scanning system for chemical warfare agents
     
  •  Bottle scanning system for chemical warfare agents
     
  •  Vehicle scanning system for explosives ("car bombs")
     
  •  Scanning system for radioactive/fissionable materials
