TSA and Dallas Fort Worth Team to Pilot New Screening Technology

A new means of screening personnel through employee portals is being piloted at Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport, utilizing technology that is designed to detect any type of hidden object.

The result of a partnership designed to strengthen airport security and improve the operational efficiency and experience of the screening process, DFW and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Innovation Task Force are conducting a demonstration of a next-generation people screening scanner that can detect both metallic and non-metallic objects.

The new Thruvision technology, coupled with an x-ray machine, will reduce the need for physical inspection of items, and enable employees to be processed quickly and in a discreet manner.
