Vanderlande Lands DHS S&T Contract for Passenger Self-Screening Concept Design

The Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate has awarded Georgia-based Vanderlande Industries a $2.5 million contract to develop a passenger self-screening concept design and prototype that streamlines Transportation Security Administration PreCheck trusted traveler operations. Vanderlande’s prototype will combined its PAX Advanced MX2 Automated Screening Lane, which allows passengers to divest their belongings on either side of the lane with still just one agent providing support, with off-the-shelf passenger screening systems to create four integrated screening stations for one screening lane. S&T says that combining the ASL with the screening stations will simplify the process of X-Ray screening of personal property and on-person screening from two steps to one. The system will provide continuous screening for prohibited and or concealed items and give passengers near real-time feedback if additional screening is necessary. Funding was provided under S&T’s Screening at Speed Broad Agency Announcement.
