EDITOR'S NOTE: During the 2002 TMS Fall Meeting in Columbus, Ohio, the symposium Opportunities and Issues in Homeland Security was cosponsored by The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society and ASM International. The speakers' slides from several of the presentations were collected and converted to into portable document format (PDF) files for viewing as this month's JOM-e.
Current plans and planning efforts associated with counterterrorism in the
federal sector are reviewed with emphasis on the positive role that materials
research and engineering can play. Generic challenges associated with inspection
and detection of materials and devices and broad opportunities for materials
research and engineering contributions are discussed. The need for systems and
system engineering approaches to the problem and the challenges that this poses
to the materials community are highlighted and general approaches suggested.
