    This is the statement of Keith O. Fultz, Assistant Comptroller General, Resources, Community, and Economic Development Division, General Accounting Office (GAO), before the Committee on Science, House of Representatives, on the serious vulnerabilities that exist within the nation's air transportation system, the actions that need to be taken to protect the flying public from the activities of terrorists, and the role of technology in improving aviation security. The testimony discusses (1) the aviation security system and vulnerabilities that exist within it, (2) the availability and limitations of explosives detection technology and other methods to address the threat, and (3) the efforts under way to improve aviation security. Also discussed are the recommendations from the Presidential Commission on Aviation Security and Terrorism headed by Vice President Al Gore (the Gore Commission).
