Passenger screening automation at airports will create the next-generation screening experience to improve security and decrease the amount of time passengers spend being screened. Developing self-screening stations at checkpoints will accelerate processes at airports. The US Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorates (DHS S&T) has been leading a Screening at Speed Program to improve screening efficiency and the experience of passengers.

The Department has selected Vanderlande’s self-screening passenger security checkpoint solution for airports for further design, development, and operational testing.The Screening at Speed Program pursues transformative research and development (R&D) to increase aviation security effectiveness from curb to gate while reducing wait times and improving the passenger experience. 

The company, in collaboration with Rohde & Schwarz and dormakaba Group, will deliver a fully integrated and self-screening passenger checkpoint concept, as well as an operational prototype for assessment by the US DHS. A prototype checkpoint will combine Vanderlande’s AX Advanced MX2 Automated Screening Lane (ASL) with off-the-shelf passenger screening systems to create four integrated screening stations for one screening lane. Combining ASL with the passenger 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, according to the company’s announcement.
