  • Improved detection of threats and dangerous and illicit goods by practitioners and operators  within the post and parcel flows, without disruption to the flow;
  • Improved capacity of  practitioners and operators to deny the misuse of the postal and parcel service by criminal or terrorist group to move items;
  • Improved risk assessment, preparedness and reaction capacities in the postal and parcel service. 
  • Improved capability of customs and border authorities, at land, sea and/or air border crossing points, to detect drugs, illicit goods, weapons, explosive and other threats concealed on individuals or within their bodies, in the operational environment of border crossing points; 
  • Safer, more efficient and more easily deployable solutions for detection compared to the state of the art are used by customs and border authorities , in particular avoiding ionizing radiation and minimizing any safety risk to users and operators and ensuring respect of fundamental rights.
