Award To Fund New Checked Baggage Screening Systems
The Transportation Security
Administration announced Sept. 13 that Rochester International
Airport (RST) has been awarded $938,000 for the construction
of new in-line baggage handling systems to enhance TSA's
efforts to strengthen airport security.
"We look forward to working with the airport on the construction
of two in-line baggage screening systems, which will both
strengthen security and make the screening process faster and more
efficient," said Federal Security Director Tom Connors.
The award will be used to construct the new systems at the Delta
and American Eagle ticket counters. The in-line baggage handling
systems will serve the more than 320,000 passengers traveling
through Rochester International each year. When completed, RST will
have 100 percent in-line screening.
"This project will streamline the ticketing and boarding process
for all RST passengers and is the result of the successful
partnership between the Rochester International Airport and the
TSA," said Airport Manager Steven W. Leqve.
According to a TSA press
release, in-line baggage handling systems use
state-of-the-art technology to quickly screen baggage for
explosives while streamlining the ticketing and boarding process.
This eliminates the need for passengers to walk checked baggage to
a screening location before proceeding to the security checkpoint.
Additionally, the systems provide on-screen resolution capabilities
for security officers screening baggage which reduces the number of
re-scans and physical bag searches.
