Erie International Airport gets advanced checkpoint screening equipment

tsa ait security screening technology erie international airport passenger terminal securityThe Transport Security Administration (TSA) has installed the latest checkpoint screening technology at Erie International Airport in Pennsylvania, US.

The Advanced Imaging Technology (AIT) enables the airport to further strengthen security for passengers flying out of Erie.

The state-of-the-art machine is equipped with new automated target recognition software, designed to enhance passenger privacy and streamlining the checkpoint screening process.

Karen Keys-Turner, TSA’s federal security director for Western Pennsylvania, commented, “AIT remains TSA’s best opportunity to detect the aviation security threats of tomorrow.

“We remain committed to deploying this integral counter-terrorism tool in order to ensure the highest level of security for the traveling public.”

AIT screens passengers for metallic and non-metallic threats, including weapons and explosives.

There is a generic image of all passengers screened through the newly equipped checkpoint. It is the same generic image for all passengers, regardless of their gender, height or weight and is designed to enhance passenger privacy.

Imaging technology screening is safe for all travelers, and the technology meets all known national and international health and safety standards. The energy emitted by millimeter wave technology is 1,000 times less than the international limits and guidelines.
