Important recommendation stated:

“Research in the IR spectral range is needed to study the spectroscopic properties (e.g., thermal emissivity versus wavelength) of human skin, clothing, and other relevant materials. This information might lead to differential spectroscopic techniques that could improve IR imaging for explosive detection”.
