Rapiscan Sponsors AAAE Annual Conference, Strengthening Relationship with Aviation Community

May 10, 2017

Rapiscan prides itself on working closely with TSA, airports, industry innovators and air carriers as a valued partner. We firmly believe that the best way to develop efficient and effective screening solutions is to work directly with the people who live and breathe their industry. Those experts have the best insight into how we can help improve security and operations – from design to implementation.
For example, we were exceptionally proud to be selected by TSA to participate in its Innovation Task Force (ITF) efforts to bring Automated Screening Lanes (ASL) to United States Airports. Building on the results of the ITF trials with ASL, we started closely collaborating with Herbert Systems, developers of the TRS Checkpoint Security Tray Return System.
The relationship between Rapiscan Systems and Herbert Systems has enabled Rapiscan to provide airports seamless integration of both software and hardware. The TRS is deployed successfully in more than 200 passenger screening lanes at airports worldwide. These systems have provided a 30% decrease in the amount of time passengers spend in security screening checkpoints.  This reduction in time adds to the enhancement of security at the checkpoints. We are currently working with TSA to have the TRS tested and placed on the Qualified Products List (QPL).
We are also working with United States airports to make advances towards introducing the RTT110, EDS. The RTT is a High Speed EDS currently being used in airports worldwide. The innovative stationary gantry provides for lower operating and maintenance costs, while increasing the life cycle of the EDS.
These kinds of developments are only made possible by industry discussion and collaboration. That’s why we are excited to participate as a gold sponsor for the 89th Annual AAAE Conference and Exposition in Long Beach, CA May 7-10.
The AAAE Annual conference will bring together more than 2,000 aviation professionals and representatives from more than 850 airports. Through three days of keynotes, sessions and workshops, attendees will discuss today’s challenges, innovations and how to make airports smarter.
We are looking forward to continuing developing partnerships with airports in the US, and working together to address their current and future security needs.

Reinforcing Nuclear Security with Technology Advancements

April 14, 2016

The risk that nuclear or other radioactive material could be used in criminal or intentional unauthorized acts remains a matter of concern internationally and continues to be regarded as a threat to international security. Nuclear security capabilities to detect and respond to nuclear or other radioactive material require continuous improvement to effectively deal with an evolving threat. Rapiscan Systems was proud to participate in the International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA) efforts to advance radiation detection capabilities by facilitating dialogue between member states and vendors to promote a more effective and sustainable nuclear security regime.

From 4-8 April 2016 in Vienna, Austria, Rapiscan participated in the IAEA’s Technical Meeting (TM) on Radiation Detection Instruments for Nuclear Security: Current Status, Future Needs, and Improvements. The TM hosted over 100 participants from 53 member state as well as approximately 50 representatives from 25 vendors. This event provided Rapiscan the opportunity to brief the IAEA and international community on its new radiation detection product line development, interact directly with partners and colleagues, hear valuable insights regarding the direction of U.S. detection efforts and learn of the IAEA’s upcoming portable devices test campaign.

The TM brought together an international community of experts in and users of radiation detection instruments along with equipment manufacturers. Discussions focused on the current status of radiation detection equipment, improvements needed for existing technology, and future functional and technical specifications to achieve more effective use and application of instruments in the detection of nuclear and other radioactive material out of regulatory control. The audience included customs and border guard agencies, regulatory bodies, emergency services, police, technical support personnel, and vendors. To help address end user needs, Rapiscan builds into its radiation detection product line mobile, transportable, and modular qualities to facilitate the operation and maintenance of equipment.

How to Implement Effective and Passenger-Friendly Cruise Ship Security Procedures | Rapiscan Systems
The Checkpoint Blog

How to Implement Effective and Passenger-Friendly Cruise Ship Security Procedures

February 23, 2016

The most recent attack that has occurred on a cruise ship was in 2004 when terrorists bombed the SuperFerry 14 in Manila Bay, Philippines resulting in 116 deaths. Attacks on cruise ships are not commonplace, but in today’s threat landscape there is a growing need to screen passengers and their belongings when they board cruise ships.  Similar to the extensive security checks performed at airports, passengers are also required to go through a thorough process before embarking on a cruise. 

While it is the role of the Transportation Security Administration, a part of the Department of Homeland Security, to adequately secure our nation’s airports, the United States Coast Guard is responsible for mandating the security rules and regulations for all United States cruise lines and cruise ships.  About two years ago, the U.S. Coast Guard announced plans to standardize passenger security screening procedures at cruise ship terminals throughout the country with the creation of the Terminal Screening Program (TSP). The program increases security at cruise ship terminals through the development of a standardized list of prohibited items, training standards, and screening procedures. The required screening procedures consist of a comprehensive scan of all the people embarking on the ship – passengers and crewmembers alike – as well as their luggage. The TSP also requires that cruise ship personnel undergo a pre-employment background screening. This screening process is similar to what airport personnel are required to go through.

In order to ensure the safety of passengers and crewmembers, we recommend using a combination of advanced bagging screening systems, walk-through metal detectors, explosive detection technology, and terrorist watch list matching. With a small footprint, walk-through metal detectors provide fast and effective security screening with minimal space requirements – making them ideal for ports where space may be limited. Additionally, transportable baggage screening systems that are easy to move and deploy allow security personnel to move them aside and store them when they are not in use. For cruise ship passengers, the vacation begins before they even board the ship so establishing an effective, integrated and seamless security operation that accounts for both security and passenger experience is of the utmost importance. 

With the passenger experience top of mind, one way to mitigate wait times, and surprises at the checkpoint, is by informing passengers to arrive early at the cruise terminal and educating them in advance on cruise line regulations so that the screening process can be as seamless as possible. In addition to the TSP, each cruise line has specific rules and regulations about what they may personally prohibit. Carnival Cruises Inc., for example, provides their customers with great information on what items are prohibited on the cruise ship, so passengers can be prepared for their trip and not risk having their personal items confiscated. 

We understand the importance of efficient and effective screening procedures that improve security without impacting throughput or passenger experience and we look forward to continuing to support the United States Coast Guard in enhancing the TSP to ensure the safety of cruise ship passengers and personnel.

Outlook: Aviation Security in 2016 | Rapiscan Systems
The Checkpoint Blog

Outlook: Aviation Security in 2016

February 02, 2016

We wrapped up 2015 attending a few aviation industry conferences, one of which was the AAAE 15th Annual Aviation Security Summit. At this particular event, we joined industry and government leaders to hear their prospective on what they believe is in store for aviation security in 2016. Hint: aviation security will remain an important challenge for regulators as well as airport operators this year.

Key discussions revolved around measures that the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is taking to secure our airports and enhance airport security. We have highlighted a few of them below:

Modifications to passenger checkpoints - The TSA will be looking at changes for passenger checkpoints, particularly in light of the recent Office of Inspector General (OIG) findings. Their focus will be on detection first, followed by operational efficiency and passenger experience. They have recently undergone a reassessment of transportation security officer training ensuring that the officers operate the checkpoint screening technologies to maximize the detection capabilities of the equipment.

Increase in pre-check programs for passengers - While the focus has been shifted back to detection at the passenger checkpoint the TSA is aware that operational efficiency and passenger experience cannot be overlooked. In light of this, the TSA is hoping to move more passengers through the pre-check program, which allows for expedited screening. The TSA is also looking at bringing more automation to the passenger checkpoints and bringing improved walk-through metal detectors, all to move passengers through the process as effectively and quickly as possible.

Increase in airport personnel screening – Currently, there are no regulations that require physical screening/inspection of individuals who have valid airport ID badges to access the Security Identification Display Area (SIDA). Currently, when airport workers apply for an airport badge a process is begun that authenticates the worker’s identification and runs a criminal history records check as well as a security threat assessment of each applicant. Due to recent events at US and international airports, the attention has turned to how to best inspect airport workers who have access to the sterile and secure areas of an airport. For more information on airport personnel screening and our thoughts on the topic, check out our previous blog post.

Checked baggage screening will remain a costly and difficult issue – The current process by which technologies are certified for detection and then qualified for operational effectiveness has proven to be a long and costly process. The only explosive detection system (EDS) operating in US airports are medium speed machines. To date no high speed EDS has been placed on TSA’s qualified product list. At a time when US airports are seeing more traffic than ever, high speed scanning allows more than 900 bags per hour (and in the case of Rapiscan’s RTT110, up to 1,800 bags per hour) to be screened.  With US airports not having the option to implement a high speed screening system many feel that they are not able to stay competitive with foreign airports and they are forced to have large systems with more machines to be able to meet capacity requirements. 

With more than 2,000 passenger screening checkpoints, and responsibility for screening baggage at more than 450 airports, the TSA has a daunting and unenviable task. They are responsible for keeping our skies safe and all of the above initiatives are being carried out while the TSA is simultaneously deciding the best way to operationalize risk-based security. Airports, TSA and original equipment manufacturers – responsible for bringing technologies to market that can meet the growing needs of airport security – face a persistent and evolving enemy. However, by working together and supporting TSA in these initiatives, we are confident in the collective ability of this group to protect the safety of our borders and nation.

Airport Personnel Screening in an Uncertain World | Rapiscan Systems
The Checkpoint Blog

Airport Personnel Screening in an Uncertain World

December 22, 2015

Since the downing of a Russian jet in Egypt in October, airport and airline security is front and center again. In fact, lately there has been increased talk about screening airport employees, with some news outlets reporting that full screening currently doesn’t actually take place. 

This is not exactly true. While airport employees may not undergo full physical screening on a daily basis, they are subject to a robust and thorough vetting by both the TSA and the FBI. The TSA first conducts a full security threat assessment, and then a full fingerprint scan is run through the FBI database for every employee who will need access to secure or sterile areas of the airport. Additionally, given the current state of security threats, airport personnel are screened sporadically to allow the TSA and airport security offices to determine if an employee has engaged in behavior that would lead to the revocation of their badge.  

However, there has been a greater push for airports to conduct full physical inspections of all airport personnel to ensure the safety of all aircraft. In answer, some airports have set up employee inspection stations and do physically screen their employees.

Representatives at some airports feel that establishing an employee screening station would be cumbersome and inefficient given the nature of how often employees exit and enter the sterile area. This has resulted in some employees having to be screened multiple times a day when they need to re-enter the sterile area after having left it either for work or personal reasons.

We understand that the decision to establish or not establish a physical inspection point for airport personnel is not made lightly and that airport, airline, and passenger safety is a top priority for airport security directors. But any security process should also, ideally, take into consideration the need for efficiency, as well as safety.

Regardless of which approach is chosen, there are solutions - from lightweight and portable walk-through metal detectors to handheld explosive trace detection systems – that can help airports ensure complete security without sacrificing their employees’ time or efficiency.  In a world where the threat landscape is constantly changing, Rapiscan stands prepared to offer the technology solution that is best suited to each individual situation – whatever the airport determines that to be.

Rapiscan Adds Radiation Detection Capabilities to its Metor Walk-Through Metal Detectors - See more

December 15, 2015

Nuclear terrorism is one of the most serious threats to global security. In the last two decades almost 2,500 incidents of trafficking radioactive material have been reported to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) by member states. Even just a small quantity of radioactive material can cause significant radiation contamination when part of a dirty bomb.

To combat the evolving threat environment, we have added radiation detection capability to our Metor walk-through metal detectors (WTMD).  The integration of radiation detection to our WTMD provides operators the ability to screen for threats like radioactive materials and hazardous contraband at the same time, making the process seamless. Such integration provides additional security without increasing the footprint or personnel requirements of a checkpoint.

Curious how it works? During people screening the radiation detection system detects gamma radiation from radioactive materials used in commercial and medical applications, as well as Special Nuclear Materials. Because the radiation inspection system is integrated with the metal detector, dense metal shielding used to contain gamma radiation will be detected by the WTMD, even if the shielding is sufficient to thwart the radiation detection system. 

The new integrated radiation detection features are compatible with the Metor 6M, Metor 6S and Metor 6E products.

Click here for the full press release.

Where You Can Find Us This Week: ASIS and IATA 2015

September 25, 2015

We’ve got a busy week coming up at Rapiscan Systems. Our team will be spread all over North America attending events with some of the most knowledgeable and influential stakeholders in the security industry.

From September 28th to October 1st our team will be in Anaheim, CA attending the 61st ASIS International Annual Seminar and Exhibits.  The ASIS annual seminar will bring together more than 20,000 security professionals and will feature more than 200 security-focused sessions. We are looking forward to attending ASIS as the event is the ultimate venue for the exchange of visionary technologies, ideas, and solutions. This year’s theme, Evolve 2 Advance, is of particular interest to Rapiscan because our latest technologies have been developed around the idea of evolving the security checkpoint for more advanced and efficient screening.  Join us at booth #2709 to demo some of our latest technologies, including: hand-held explosives detectors, integrated radiation detectors, portable bag screeners, and metal detectors.

On September 29th and 30th we’ll be in Montreal, Canada attending the 5th annual IATA Cargo and Security Facilitation Forum. This event was created as a means of facilitating a conversation and providing a platform for experts in the industry to actively engage in discussions on cargo and mail security topics. We are interested to learn from all of the speakers at the event, and share our thoughts and ideas about how we can work together to improve the air cargo security landscape. While Rapiscan isn’t speaking at the event, we are thrilled to be participating in the “Speed Dating” networking sessions, which will give us a chance to meet with attendees, answer their questions, and hear what their security priorities are. 

Will you be attending either of these events? Let us know. We’d love to meet up with you there!

Rapiscan Systems to Attend ALEAN 2015 Conference

September 18, 2015

Next week, from September 21-24, the Rapiscan team is heading to Las Vegas for the Air Port Law Enforcement Agencies Network (ALEAN) 2015 Fall Conference. This is the first time we will be attending ALEAN and we are excited to have the opportunity discuss the latest in airport screening and security with industry experts.

In accordance with essential security mandates, airport law enforcement officials are required to respond to any calls regarding the status of items left unattended in an airport. We are looking forward to introducing the capabilities included in Rapiscan’s aviation security-screening portfolio, to demonstrate how our innovative technology complies with and supports these mandates.

In particular, we are looking forward to introducing and giving a demonstration of our Detectra HX, which allows for safe, effective and efficient trace explosive detection.  Law enforcement officials will also be able to use Detectra HX to screen employees for potential security threats.

We are honored to be a Gold Sponsor of ALEAN and look forward to addressing attendees and discussing the top priorities in the airport security industry. Will you be at ALEAN this year? Let us know! We’d love to see you there.
