Contents: PASSENGER RAIL SECURITY: EXPLOSIVES DETECTION AND SAFETY EFFORTS; PASSENGER RAIL SECURITY: EXPLOSIVES DETECTION AND SAFETY EFFORTS; CONTENTS; PREFACE; Chapter 1TECHNOLOGY ASSESSMENT: EXPLOSIVES DETECTION TECHNOLOGIES TO PROTECT PASSENGER RAIL; WHY GAO DID THIS STUDY; WHAT GAO FOUND; ABBREVIATIONS; BACKGROUND; Overview of the U.S. Passenger Rail System; Passenger Rail Systems Are Inherently Difficult to Secure and Vulnerable to Terrorist Attacks, Particularly against theThreat from Explosives; Multiple Stakeholders Share Responsibility for Securing Passenger Rail Systems. Federal and Industry Stakeholders Have Taken Actions to Secure Passenger Rail SystemsTypes and Characteristics of Explosives and IEDs; A VARIETY OF EXPLOSIVES DETECTION TECHNOLOGIES ARE AVAILABLE OR IN DEVELOPMENT THAT COULD HELP SECURE PASSENGER RAIL SYSTEMS-IF TAILORED TO THE NEEDS OF INDIVIDUAL RAIL SYSTEMS BUT-LIMITATIONS EXIST; Various Explosives Detection Technologies Could be Applied to Help Secure Passenger Rail Systems If Operational Constraints of Rail are Effectively Considered; Handheld, Desktop, and Kit Explosives Detection Systems; Carry-on Baggage Explosive Detection Systems. Explosive Trace PortalsAdvanced Imaging Technology Portals; Standoff Explosives Detection Systems; Explosives Detection Canines; Limitations in Available Explosives Detection Technologies Restrict Their More Widespread or More Effective Use in Passenger Rail; Detection Performance Varies across the Different Explosives Detection Technologies and Challenges Exist in Detection of HMEs; Screening Throughput, Mobility, and Other Characteristics of Explosives Detection Technologies Could Limit Deployment Options inPassenger Rail. SEVERAL OVERARCHING OPERATIONAL AND POLICY FACTORS COULD IMPACT THE ROLE OF EXPLOSIVES DETECTION TECHNOLOGIES IN THE PASSENGER RAIL ENVIRONMENTThe Roles and Responsibilities of Multiple Federal and Local Stakeholders Could Impact How Explosives Detection Technologies are Funded and Implemented in Passenger Rail; Risk Management Could be Used to Effectively Guide the Decision to Fund or Implement Explosives Detection Technologies; Explosives Detection Technologies are One Component of a Layered Approach to Security. A Concept of Operations for Explosives Detection Technologies Could Enable Passenger Rail Operators to Better Balance Security with the Movement of PassengersCosts, Potential Legal Implications, and Policy Concerns, such as Privacy and Health, Are Important Considerations When Making Decisions about Explosives Detection Technologies in the Passenger Rail Environment; CONCLUDING OBSERVATIONS; AGENCY COMMENTS AND OUR EVALUATION; APPENDIX I.
