The author highlights some of the major problems and surveys the kinds of weapon detectors available. In addition, the editors asked all the manufacturers known to them for material on their equipment and, whenever a reply has been secured, describe these products in brief within the article. The devices reviewed here include: hand-held electronic metal detectors; static electronic metal detectors (gate or arch type); X-ray systems for baggage/cargo; and explosive vapor detectors.
