Liquids Aerosols and Gels Screening (LAGs)

CISR was appointed by the Australian Government's Office of Transport Security (OTS) to undertake a study into introduction of liquids, aerosols and gels (LAGs) screening technology into Australian airports. The concept of the study was to investigate the impact to the existing screening process if LAGs in carry on luggage was screened.

The screening process involved the screening of any LAGs for various scenarios covering options such as a blanket approach to screen all LAGs to random screening.

The technology was trialled over a six week period in two Australian Airports. Data collected during this period was used to drive simulation models of the environments, leading to the ability to predict system changes to operational policies and loadings.
