Description:

Our worldwide mobility based economy is being impacted (6% of GDP) due to insecure transportation systems. Security effectiveness measures vary widely, depending on the mode of transportation, ranging from 'medium effectiveness' for airports, to 'low effectiveness' for maritime, rail, transit and intermodal activities. Regardless of the transport mode, improvements are essential to address security planning, response and national preparedness. Transportation Security examines this problem in a comprehensive manner modally and inter-modally and addresses security-based technologies and solutions to minimize risk. * Covers air, sea, roadway, rail and public transport modes * Offers technological solutions for mobility based problems in planning, logistics and policy to improve security, combat terrorism and ensure national preparedness * Includes work of international experts & global examples related to transportation security
