ABSTRACT
The efficiency of current cargo screening processes at sea
and air ports is unknown as no benchmarks exists against
which they could be measured. Some manufacturer
benchmarks exist for individual sensors but we have not
found any benchmarks that take a holistic view of the
screening procedures assessing a combination of sensors
and also taking operator variability into account. Just add-
ing up resources and manpower used is not an effective
way for assessing systems where human decision-making
and operator compliance to rules play a vital role. For such
systems more advanced assessment methods need to be
used, taking into account that the cargo screening process
is of a dynamic and stochastic nature. Our project aim is to
develop a decision support tool (cargo-screening system
simulator) that will map the right technology and man-
power to the right commodity-threat combination in order
to maximize detection rates.
