Abstract : The automatic Portal Detector System (PDS-5) was constructed in order to evaluate the desirability of introducing a general purpose digital computer into a metal detector for weapons detection. The possible benefits to be derived by the use of a computer are improved target detection through more sophisticated signal processing. The cost of the computer can be shared by a number of systems operating in the same vicinity. (Author)
