"The Homeland Security Department will deploy additional computerized methods of pinpointing threats in airports in response to the newly uncovered plot to blow up aircraft flying from London to the United States, department's secretary Michael Chertoff, said today.

None of the officials elaborated on what kind of advanced targeting tools DHS would begin using in airports. But previously announced research projects in the area include special systems that can detect individuals who display 'suspicious behavior.'

The term 'advanced targeting tools' generally is understood to cover data mining methods that can extract useful patterns from huge heaps of information, such as the data already gathered about terrorists and their methods.
