San Diego International Airport Is TSA Test Bed For Explosives Trace Detection Portals

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) today announced it will begin an operational test and evaluation of an explosives trace detection portal at a passenger security checkpoint at San Diego International Airport, Lindbergh Field. In June, TSA began testing at T.F. Green State Airport, Providence, R.I., and Greater Rochester (N.Y.) International Airport. In the next few weeks, machines will be introduced to air travelers at Tampa (Fla.) International Airport and Gulfport-Biloxi (Miss.) International Airport. The explosive trace detection portal, the GE EntryScan3, is designed to analyze air for traces of explosive material and will be evaluated for effectiveness in the airport environment. The tests will be conducted for 30 to 45 days at each airport. Full Story
