National Cargo Screeners Inc. of Orlando, Fla., is one of the companies certified by the TSA to screen the tons of freight loaded onto passenger flights every day. The company says its powerful X-ray machine "looks for any device that looks like an explosive. Really any device that could be construed as a threat to an aircraft." As a federal deadline looms for screening 100% of airline cargo, NCSI is planning to expand.
