TSA Awards Up to $128M to Idemia for Second Generation Credential Authentication Technology

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has today announced the award of an Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract, with a value of up to $128 million, to Idemia Identity and Security USA, LLC for the second generation Credential Authentication Technology (CAT-2) systems and support services at TSA security checkpoints.      

TSA says these systems substantially improve identity verification, validate the authenticity of a passenger’s identification credential, confirm pre-screening status and validate flight reservations. 

The second generation CAT-2 systems allow for automated identity verification with an integrated camera for biometric and self-service capabilities. 

This new contract with Idemia will enable TSA to test, manufacture, procure and deploy over 1,500 new CAT-2 systems to airport security checkpoints nationwide.
