In this research, we have to detect the contrabands hidden in the human body’s scanned images at airport security machines using segmentation and classification. Present algorithm of security scanning machines at the airports of USA are producing high rate of false negatives which in cases lead to engage in a secondary, manual screening process that slows everything down. So to resolve this problem and to improve the detection of contrabands, new and efficient algorithm need to be made.
