NEW Tools Coming to SUN Security!

By May 3, 2017Featured

On your next trip through the Friedman Memorial Airport security checkpoint you will see a major enhancement to the passenger security screening process. The ProVision 2 was operational and available for passenger use on April 26, 2017. Initial feedback form passengers and TSA staff has been positive. The Provision 2 will enhance security and provide passengers with an improved travel experience.

The ProVision 2 with Automatic Target Detection is state-of-the-art equipment with automated target recognition software that uses bright yellow boxes to indicate to a TSA officer the location of an alarm on a generic “cookie cutter” image of a passenger. This way the officer knows exactly where to check for a possible threat item.

If the machine indicates no threats, then a green screen appears that indicates the passenger is cleared to pass through the checkpoint.

AIT technology is designed to enhance security by safely screening passengers for metallic and non-metallic threats—including weapons, explosives and other objects concealed under layers of clothing.

There is a generic image of all passengers who are screened through the new automated image technology checkpoint screening equipment. It’s the same generic image for all passengers, regardless of their gender, height or weight and is designed to enhance passenger privacy. The image looks very much like the outline of a cookie cutter.

Imaging technology screening is safe for all travelers, and meets all known national and international health and safety standards. In fact, the energy emitted by millimeter wave technology is 1,000 times less than the international limits and guidelines.

We hope that you enjoy your next trip through SUN!
