Efficient non-intrusive inspection (NII) of containerised freight is critical for customs, as freight containers are potential means of smuggling, illegal immigration or even trafficking nuclear material and chemical warfare agents. A single NII technology cannot cope with all of these different threats. The C-BORD project’s objective is to address them all and enable customs to deploy comprehensive cost-effective solutions for the NII of containers in order to protect EU sea and land borders.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
