NEW SECURITY TECHNOLOGY AND THE FUTURE OF
AIRPORT SECURITY CHECKPOINT DESIGN

Advancements in screening technology present new opportunities for airport
deployment and usage.
WHILE THE last major new U.S. airport was completed
and opened its doors in Denver more than 24 years
ago, in the U.S. and around the world, hundreds
of billions of dollars are being invested in airport
construction, modernization and expansion projects
aimed at increasing capacity to accommodate rapidly
growing numbers of travelers.
According to the Federal Aviation
Administration's Aerospace Forecast
2018-2038, domestic air travel is expected
to increase over 40 percent in the next
20 years while international travelers, to
and from the U.S., will more than double.
Without new, high performing and
efficient aviation security technologies,
passenger screening processes and
checkpoint layout and design will
remain restricted to the current status
quo. Given the evolving threat stream
facing the aviation sector, coupled with
the increased passenger volumes, the
current state of play is not sustainable.
New technology presents a viable
solution for addressing these challenges.

Post 9/11, airport security screening
has evolved in response to threats and
attempted terrorist attacks. This has
led to the introduction of a number of
screening solutions, like standard metal
detectors and major U.S. airports now
employ full-body millimeter wave
imaging technology, or Advanced
Imaging Technology (AIT), as the
primary screening technique to detect
and identify potential person-borne
threats. Over the years, as threat
detection systems and the number of TSA
personnel required to operate them has
expanded, so has the checkpoint space
that airports have had to relinquish to
TSA to accommodate the screening
infrastructure. In addition to requiring
a substantial amount of space for x-ray
scanners, large AIT systems, metal
detectors and extra space for service
and maintenance, because overall
checkpoint space is consumed by
screening technology, TSA screening
layouts require additional space to
provide access for mobility challenged
travelers and for wheel-chair passage.
Neither the current design and layout,
nor the current screening technologies,

can support the highly eff icient
checkpoint security operations required
to screen the growing volumes of
travelers. For years, TSA's Checkpoint
Design Guide has ser ved as the
blueprint and continues to challenge
even the most creative architects and
engineers to do anything other than
replicate similar checkpoint designs at
airports across the country.
