Excerpt from the US Transportation Security Agency website: "The ban on liquids, aerosols and gels was implemented
on August 10 after a terrorist plot was foiled. Since then, experts from around the government, including the FBI and our
national labs have analyzed the information we now have and have conducted extensive explosives testing to get a better
understanding of this specific threat." In order to lift the ban and ease the burden on the flying public, Reveal began an
extensive effort in close collaboration with the US and several other governments to help identify these threats. This
effort resulted in the successful development and testing of an automated explosive detection system capable of
resolving these threats with a high probability of detection and a low false alarm rate. We will present here some of the
methodology and approach we took to address this problem.
