Abstract : This document is the Operational Assessment (QA) of the threat image projection training and testing component of the Screener Proficiency Evaluation and Reporting System (SPEARS) conducted at Los Angeles International Airport in 1995. This OA covers the test and evaluation of the EG&G Astrophysics Training and Testing (TnTTM) system which focused on determining its effectiveness in meeting the requirements set forth in the Critical Operational Issues and Criteria, Critical Technical Issues and Criteria and Test and Evaluation Plan provided by the Federal Aviation Administration. The TnTTM system did not meet 2 of the 3 Critical Operational Criteria and 4 of 7 Critical Technical Criteria during this test and should be considered ineffective and unsuitable in its current configuration.
