Airline passengers could have their conversations and movements monitored under a European Union project aimed at tackling terrorism.
Brussels is funding research at Reading University aimed at detecting suspicious behaviour on board aircraft.
A combination of cameras, microphones, explosive sniffers and a sophisticated computer system would give a pilot early warning of any danger. But the work will alarm civil liberties campaigners who fear the growth of the surveillance state.
The Reading team, headed by James Ferryman, has conducted trials of the camera system on a British Aerospace plane and the computer system on a mock Airbus.
