Sandia Lab, Stratovan Corp. Partner to Develop Open Threat Assessment Platform for Aviation Security

A multi-phase partnership between Sandia National Laboratories and Stratovan Corporation is aimed at establishing a dynamic screening system that enables seamless aviation security integration through an Open Threat Assessment Platform (OTAP).

Sandia and Stratovan (a software house and developer of next-generation interactive visual analysis software for 3D imaging) said the OTAP project will lay the foundation for:

  • The standardization of data, images and interfaces;
  • A strengthened and vibrant threat detection market;
  • Dynamic, risk-based screening; and
  • Human-centric design of threat detection technology

“These concepts will be prototyped with a carry-on baggage x-ray prototype system implementing an open system architecture,” Sandia said in its announcement of the partnership Tuesday. “This project will lay the foundation for faster product development cycles, and for future efforts expanding to other security technologies across the TSA screening equipment architecture.

“We are proud to partner with Sandia National Laboratories,” said Jim Olson, CEO of Stratovan. “It is a critical time right now in aviation security and teaming up with Sandia National Laboratories enables us to further establish ourselves as a leader in providing system and software solutions to the aviation security market.”

“An integrated system with standardization of data, images and user-interfaces better equips airports to deal with continually changing threats – and increases the cost-effectiveness of security solutions – by leveraging expertise and knowledge obtained at each screening stage,” the announcement stated, adding, “It also increases access to the security-technology market for vendors with newly developed technologies, which can be implemented and deployed more quickly and at a lower acquisition cost.”

Sandia and Stratovan said “the collaboration … will enhance both traveler safety and screening process efficiency, resulting in a much better overall experience.”
