New-South Synergy has selected Leidos to upgrade U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) checkpoints at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL).
The upgrades are believed to be part of a larger initiative to leverage the latest technologies to expand and enhance the airport’s security checkpoints, whilst also improving passenger experience.
As part of the agreement, security lanes will be updated at the Domestic Terminal Main Security Checkpoint with Leidos’ Advanced Imaging Technology (AIT). These upgrades include replacing the existing Pro:Vision 1 scanners with 10 new Pro:Vision 2 systems, the benefits include a compact design and footprint, and continued safe millimeter wave technology.
Jonathan Stone, Director of Aviation and Division Manager at Leidos, said: “We are proud to work with New-South Synergy as a critical partner in its deployment of next generation security technologies. These upgrades represent the next step in the transformation of our nation’s aviation checkpoints. Together we seek to improve operational efficiency for airports and make travel more seamless for passengers.”
Dan Wurzel, Senior Project Manager at New South Construction, added: “We are proud to partner with Leidos to help secure Hartsfield-Jackson’s position as the busiest and most efficient airport in the world. The introduction of these new security technologies will enhance airport security operations, while improving the overall experience for Atlanta travelers.”
Leidos’ AIT technology was selected under TSA’s Capabilities Acceptance Process (CAP), designed to ensure that Transportation Security Equipment (TSE) and related services meet the highest standards for quality and effectiveness. The Pro:Vision 2 scanners are now on the Acceptable Capabilities List (ACL) and available for use within TSA operations.
