TSA chooses millimeter wave-based airport security passenger screening sensor from L-3 Security

WOBURN, Mass., 6 May 2010 2010. Officials of the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) in Washington needed 200 advanced imaging systems to screen passengers at U.S. airport checkpoints. They found their solution in the ProVision passenger security systems from L-3 Communications Security & Detection Systems Inc. in Woburn, Mass.

The ProVision passenger-screening systems for airport security provide TSA with an additional technology to support TSA’s layered security approach. The technology in the ProVision system essentially uses millimeter wave radar to detect metallic and non-metallic threats that may be hidden under a passenger’s clothing.

More than 500 ProVision units have been ordered globally. These systems are deployed worldwide at airports and other facilities, including federal and state courthouses, correctional institutions, embassies and border crossings.

L-3 Security offers screening technologies that include aviation systems for hold baggage explosives detection and checkpoint screening, cargo and air freight screening, port and border inspection, and facility protection. For more information contact L-3 Communications Security & Detection Systems online at www.sds.l-3com.com.
