AZO Receives Grant to Incorporate Automated Baggage Screening System

Kalamazoo/Battle Creek International airport has received a funding of around $1 million from Transport Security Administration (TSA) for including a new automated in-line baggage screening system for enhancing security measures at the airport.

Penny Anderson, Federal Security Director, AZO, has stated that the automated baggage handling system can profoundly improve the baggage checking process. He added that it also helps to identify explosives and other hazardous objects found in the baggage, thereby ensuring a safer screening method.

After including this automated screening system, AZO will perform 100% streamlined checking for providing enhanced service for more than 340,000 travelers using the airport every year.

Clifton Moshoginis, Director, AZO Airport appreciated TSA’s sponsorship for this new project, thereby revealing their close association with TSA for helping the society.

The in-line luggage screening system implements advanced expertise for rapidly checking the baggage for hazardous items while organizing boarding and ticketing methods, thereby reducing the need for the travelers to take their checked luggage to the inspection location before moving to the security checkpoint. Also this automated screening system can probably reduce the frequent re-scans by providing on-screen determining possibilities for the security personnel who are screening the baggage.
