TSA Deploys Screening Equipment

TSA said it has installed 200 multi-view X-ray machines to airports that include Phoenix, Washington Dulles, Denver and Baltimore. Installations are on-going at Reagan Washington, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Dallas, Miami and Detroit.

These new machines provide multiple views of carry-on baggage and a much clearer image, allowing officers to screen carry-on bags with fewer physical searches, TSA said.

Millimeter wave whole-body imagers are being deployed in the coming weeks to airports that include Dallas-Ft. Worth, Miami, Las Vegas, Reagan Washington, Denver, Miami and Detroit. Millimeter wave enables officers to screen passengers for metallic and non-metallic items without conducting pat-down inspections, TSA said. Millimeter wave currently is deployed at airports in Phoenix, Los Angeles, Baltimore and New York Kennedy International.
