Electromagnetic Mannequin tests walk-through metal detectors.Electromagnetic Mannequin tests walk-through metal detectors.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
December 30, 2008 Consisting of carbon and polymer mixture that simulates human body, NIST phantom serves as mannequin in standardized performance test for walk-through metal detectors such as those used at airports. Engineers in NIST's Office of Law Enforcement Standards used data from recent trials to design and support reproducible process incorporating phantom that will evaluate walk-through metal detector's ability to discriminate between threatening and non-threatening objects.
NIST measures toughness of thin insulating films for ICs.NIST measures toughness of thin insulating films for ICs.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
December 30, 2008 To measure resistance to fracture of thin insulating films, NIST researchers use adaptation of nanoindentation, which works by pressing sharp, hard object and observing how much pressure it takes to deform material. Pressing carefully on dielectric film generates cracks as small as 300 nm, which are measured by electron microscopy. Variables are plugged into fracture mechanics model that predicts not only fracture toughness but also critical film thickness for spontaneous fracture.
NIST Report identifies security threats for overseas voting.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
December 30, 2008 Funded by Election Assistance Commission, NIST report discusses how postal mail, telephone, email, and Web could be used in overseas voting process. Report identifies issues and threats associated with using these methods to register voters, distribute blank ballots, and return voted ballots. In addition, report suggests control measures, such as cryptography and back-up communication lines, for mitigating some specific threats.
Voluntary Safety Programs should return to airlines.
Aerospace Industries Association    Arlington, VA 22209-3928
December 30, 2008 According to AIA President and CEO, Marion Blakey, airlines and pilot organizations should reinstate voluntary safety reporting programs to ensure highest possible level of protection for traveling public. Recent decisions by several U.S. commercial air carriers to discontinue safety incident disclosure agreements, such as Aviation Safety Action Program, are troubling, and parties involved must put safety first and contractual disputes second, Blakey said.
