A test participant receives a 3-D full body scan at Bowling Green State University in Ohio. The participant is attempting to conceal an illegal object under their clothing through a simulated security checkpoint.  This research was possible through an educational partnership agreement between the Air Force Research Laboratory 711th Human Performance Wing and Bowling Green State University. The research focused on human biomechanics and 3-D motion analysis. A specific area of interest was the change of size, shape and motion when an individual has concealed objects in the torso. Results from this research are projected to improve defense and security processes for the military.
