8 December 2004 Terahertz imaging performance model for concealed weapon identification
Author Affiliations +
Terahertz imaging is becoming more viable for many applications due to advances in detector and emitter technologies. One of the applications for THz imaging is the detection and identification of concealed weapons (e.g., in airport security screening lines). The path described here provides an imaging performance model for the application of concealed weapon identification. The approach is the typical U.S. Army target acquisition model for sensor performance prediction coupled to the acquire methodology for weapon identification performance prediction.
