The exponential growth of e-commerce in conjunction with threats pertaining to the drug trade, the online pharmacy, and terrorism are creating a significant need for inspection sites (i.e. postal processing centers) to upgrade and expand their capabilities. Therefore new solutions are needed. In the frame work of this project, our goal is to develop a low-cost security imaging inspection system that can see not only through opaque postal packages but can also differentiate various objects and materials from each other within a reconstructed image of package interior without the need for opening them at the border or mail processing centers.
