  Transport Security Technology Conference:
Facilitation of International Cooperation on Technological Developments and Disseminations

PURPOSE
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.
