  • TSA mulls device for detecting stowaways
    The Transportation Security Administration is considering investing in technology that would allow it to scan cargo areas for stowaways on domestic and international flights. It will consider devices capable of examining containers large enough to hide a person and capable of probing the containers before they are placed on an aircraft.
