Oakland International Airport (OAK) has installed a physical threat detection and prevention system powered by artificial intelligence to streamline its employee screening program.

As the second busiest airport in Northern California, passenger travel at OAK is set to surpass the 13.2 million travelers that passed through the airport in 2017. To accommodate this growth, more and more employees are being hired to work at OAK.

Evolv Edge provides OAK with the ability to screen employees for metallic and non-metallic threats with a fast, non-invasive process. Designed with built-in wheels for portability, OAK can easily move the system throughout the airport, allowing maximum efficiency for its employee inspection program.

By replacing traditional physical screenings with Evolv Edge’s multi-threat detection capabilities, OAK can control access and respond to different threat scenarios quickly and efficiently.

Mike Ellenbogen, CEO of Evolv Technology, said, “With today’s threat landscape, the security perimeter has expanded beyond traditional checkpoints.

Evolv Edge’s flexibility and portability provides Oakland International Airport with an added layer of security when it comes to employee screening. Oakland International Airport is always at the forefront of innovation, and we will continue working closely with their team to ensure success and safety.”
