Leidos has been selected by the Dominican Republic’s Punta Cana International Airport to upgrade their security checkpoints.
Punta Cana is a popular Caribbean destination that hosts more than 4 million tourists annually. To meet strong projected growth over the coming years, airport officials identified the need for better security and greater efficiency.
The planned upgrade will update all security lanes within the Punta Cana International Airport Terminal B checkpoint with the latest Leidos technology. These upgrades include the installation of the people scanner Pro:Vision® 2, ProPassage™, a fully configurable automated tray return system, as well as ClearScan™, an automated CT scanner for cabin baggage at each checkpoint. The airport already possesses Leidos’ B220™, a desktop explosive trace detector. The Leidos Mosaic™ enterprise software solution will integrate the entire security ecosystem and connect with other elements of the airport operations.
Implementation is slated to start this summer with several lanes being fully upgraded by the end of the year. The remaining lanes will be completed in the first half of 2023.
