This chapter discusses the physical and chemical principles that are employed in the construction of equipment for use in the border security and border protection contexts. Equipment used by airports, freight forwarding agents, and seaport authorities will be described but it should be noted that no performance figures will be given: there are obvious confidentiality and security issues precluding this.
