TSA Hopes to RFID-enable 60 Security Lanes This Year

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) intends to expand its deployment of RFID-enabled baggage-screening technology to 60 lanes at U.S. airports by the end of this year. The TSA, an agency of the Department of Homeland Security, has been using RFID during a pilot being carried out at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport since the end of May 2016 (see TSA Installs RFID-enabled Screening System at Atlanta Airport to Cut Wait Times). The technology has proven to increase passenger-screening efficiency by 30 percent, the agency reports, and it is thus in the process of working with several airlines to install the solution at multiple airports.
