Automated security screening on horizon for US airports
The US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) wants to establish self-service security checkpoints at US airports, Nextgov reports.
DHS is seeking proposals from companies to build systems that would allow travellers to conduct their own security screening.
Passengers would run their own bags through an x-ray machine and pass through body-scanning portals.
Human Transportation Security Administration personnel would intervene only if screening were to trigger an alarm that could not be resolved by travellers, removing any unnoticed items and repeating the self-scanning.
