    Description

    Initially the group discussed what is meant by scanning systems. An operational definition was adopted to consider scanning system in the current context to be nontraditional scanning. Where, traditional scanning is defined as scanning that has been industrially operational and relatively common for several years-a mature technology. For example, log profile scanning would be considered traditional, whereas other forms of optical scanning, as well as ultrasonic scanning, microwave scanning, x-ray scanning, etc., would be treated as nontraditional, and fall within the purview of this discussion. These latter scanning systems do not yet qualify as mature technologies.
