The Department of Homeland Security has selected Vanderlande’s concept for a self-screening passenger security checkpoint solution for airports for further design, development and operational testing. This will be carried out as part of the DHS Science and Technology Directorates (S&T) Screening at Speed Program to improve screening efficiency and the experience of passengers.
The concept combines Vanderlande’s global airport checkpoint experience and expertise with that of its partners, Rohde & Schwarz and dormakaba Group. Rohde & Schwarz will supply its Quick Personnel Security scanner, while dormakaba will supply its market-leading secure access control systems.
Vanderlande will supply and integrate the screening lanes and its smart virtual divest assistant solution. With the award of this contract, Vanderlande and its partners will deliver a fully integrated and self-screening passenger checkpoint concept, as well as an operational prototype for assessment by DHS.
