TSA Eyes Concepts on Aviation Security Tech

The Transportation Security Administration has posted a broad agency announcement to seek concepts and proposals that will help augment aviation security systems, Fedscoop reported Wednesday.

According to a notice posted on the government's System for Award Management website, TSA aims to secure approaches and technologies that will address security gaps in specific areas including alarm resolution and portable screening tools.

“We are going through a series of innovation efforts to understand — not just in the security space — who’s looking at things that might go to some of these problem sets,” said Patty Cogswell, acting deputy administrator at TSA.

Cogswell added that the agency explores artificial intelligence technologies to automate tasks and validate evidence in CCTV clips for law enforcement usage.

Responses to the notice are due Jan. 17.

TSA will also host an industry event on Dec. 6 to discuss the requirements in line with the initiative.
