Author(s)

Nicholas G. Paulter Jr.

Abstract

The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) standard for walk-through metal detectors for use in concealed weapon detection was written in 1974. The NIJ standard has been rewritten to provide repeatable and reproducible test methods, improved detection performance requirements, improved system quality, and new designs for realistic test objects.
