Work Package 6: Validation, demonstration, dissemination and exploitation
Leader: Marius Costin (CEA)
This work package focuses on the validation of the inspection procedure proposed by the project, which will put in evidence the developments and the advances accomplished by the other work packages.
In order to establish a reference, the first task concerns the definition of the end user requirements with a description of the actual daily process. The actual and the desired performances of the inspection systems will be detailed, with the objective to make a real progress by turning these requirements into developments to be used in future by the screeners.
The training of the screening officers is an essential element for an improved inspection process and therefore software platform for training will be implemented and associated courses will be prepared. At the mid-period of the task, the software specifications are well defined and a first demo version is available. A screenshot of the user interface is displayed in fig.1.
The validation process will follow a procedure which will emphasize the benefits of the new assist functions and of the training of screeners. The validation will be conducted as a study with three groups of operators who will analyze an important number of images containing threats. The results obtained without and with training, without and with assist functions will allow an objective assessment of the performances of detection for different types of threats. A demonstration will be organized in real case conditions. A workshop organized at the end of the project will present the improvements and the new procedures proposed by the ACXIS project. The results will be disseminated through publications in scientific journals, contributions at conferences or related exhibitions. A dedicated page on the project website presents a summary of these publications. The technology transfer will be planned and monitored within the exploitation task. A wide audience is targeted in order to exploit to the full potential the results and the developments of ACXIS project to the European level.
