Transport Security Technology Conference:
Facilitation of International Cooperation on Technological Developments and Disseminations
After the September 11 terrorist attacks, transportation security
measures have been steadily enhanced, but there still remain
some outstanding issues which include simultaneously improving
security and ensuring smooth transport of passengers and cargo,
as well as utilizing more efficient and inexpensive measures.
Adopting advanced technologies is one way to resolve these issues.
Currently, governments and private sectors throughout the world
are working individually and separately on technological developments.
To facilitate the development and dissemination of new technologies,
it is important to have cooperation among countries that have
advanced technologies. This includes sharing and standardizing
specific technologies across the world, which would allow for
reduction in costs.
At this conference, top leaders from governments and private
sectors will provide keynote speeches and technology presentations
to help us explore the nature and extent of international cooperation
on the development and dissemination of new technologies in
all modes of transportation. We will also offer an excellent
opportunity to deepen our understanding of state of the art
technologies including an intelligent surveillance system, an
explosive detection device and active RFID, through technology
presentations and displays.
