TSA Places Order For 200 ProVision Screening Systems


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
L-3 Communications
: 07 May, 2010  (Application Story)
The US Transportation Security Administration is opting for millimetre wave passenger screening with the purchase of ProVision systems from L-3 Communications for use in US airports
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has ordered approximately 200 ProVision advanced imaging technology systems from L-3 Communications for the screening of passengers at US airport checkpoints. These systems provide TSA with an additional technology to support TSA’s layered security approach.

“We are proud to continue to support TSA’s requirements for checkpoint screening and have ramped up production at our manufacturing facility in St. Petersburg (America) to meet demand,” said Thomas Ripp, president of L-3 Security & Detection Systems. “Our ProVision system utilizes effective radio wave-based technology to provide an efficient screening capability to the aviation community.”

The millimetre wave (MMW) technology in the ProVision system utilizes radio waves to detect threats that may be hidden under a passenger’s clothing. A broad variety of concealed materials, including both metallic and non-metallic threat items, can be found with the ProVision machine.

“The ProVision system provides an upgradeable technology platform that L-3 will continue to enhance to detect an even broader range of emerging aviation threats,” Mr Ripp added.

More than 500 ProVision units have now been ordered globally. These systems are deployed worldwide at airports and other facilities, including federal and state courthouses, correctional institutions, embassies and border crossings.
