Screen Passengers by Observation Technique as it expands to, is a new methodology used by officials at the airports to detect terrorists. The methodology used is that of observing the physical changes that occur when someone lies, or makes a statement that is inconsistent with his/her mental state.
(Hindu 23 Aug 2006) SPOT operatives are wizards at picking micro-facial expressions that give away what we are really feeling. This means that any person would give himself/herself away even with a fleeting grimace lasting barely 1/25th of a second!
Of course, there are issues related to the success of such detectors. While a nervous passenger might put himself/herself into trouble over innocuous statements, a well trained person might be able to get away with it!
