More airports scheduled to receive advanced imaging technology machines

September 13, 2010, 06:21 am

A pilot can follow every possible safety procedure and still meet danger in the sky. Problematic situations can occur in-flight if proper safety precautions are not made at the airport.

To help make flying safer for flight crews and passengers, the Transportation Security Administration is continuing to install advanced imaging technology in airports across the country.

The new technology is already in a number of airports. Eight additional airports are scheduled to be outfitted with the machines in the near future under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

TSA Administrator John Pistole says implementing advanced imaging technology in the country's airports is an important safety measure.

"Advanced imaging technology is an integral tool in TSA's layered counterterrorism approach that enables us to stay ahead of evolving threats to aviation security," says Pistole. "We remain committed to deploying imaging technology to protect the traveling public."

The security system has been in use since 2007 and can detect weapons, explosives and other harmful items that are hidden beneath clothing. Radiation levels emitted from the screening system have been deemed safe by the Federal Drug Administration's Center for Devices and Radiological Health. ADNFCR-3158-ID-19939585-ADNFCR
