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.
