Proposal Title: CPACT (CheckPoint Advanced Computerized Tomography)
Topic Number: H-SB018.1-006
Phase: Phase I
Topic Title: Improved Human Systems for Computed Tomography

Abstract: Next Century proposes development of CPACT (CheckPoint Advanced Computed Tomography), providing an innovative user interface that makes processing 3D CT images sufficiently intuitive and straightforward for the operator, so as to streamline their use at baggage checkpoints. The proposed CPACT solution will enable TSA and our nation to reap the benefits of the increased security that these 3D images afford. To ensure tangible results and adequate vetting of our approach, Next Century will assemble a Phase I proof-of-concept interface prototype that demonstrates the user interface concepts, paradigms, and functional capabilities of our CPACT solution. Phase II will then focus on evolving this capability for operational field use. To date, no vendor is known to have stepped forward to offer a Common GUI for use across CT scanning platforms in the security market. This opens a window of opportunity for the CPACT solution proposed herein to fill that void and become the front-end interface of choice for these systems, especially if it garners the support and recommendation of DHS. In addition, the intuitive-yet-powerful analysis capabilities of the CPACT user interface are likely to garner interest from the medical community as well, given its heavy reliance upon and use of CT imagery. Potential for interest also exists in the law enforcement, military, and intelligence domains.
