TSA checkpoint at Harrisburg International Airport gets new state-of-the-art 3-D checkpoint scanner to improve explosives detection


HARRISBURG, Pa. — A new state-of-the-art advanced technology computed tomography checkpoint scanner (CT) that provides 3-D imaging has been installed and is in use at the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) checkpoint at Harrisburg International Airport. The new technology provides critical explosives detection capabilities at the checkpoint and improves the capability for TSA officers to determine whether an item inside a carry-on bag is a possible threat.

The system applies sophisticated algorithms for the detection of explosives by creating a 3-D image that can be viewed and rotated on three axes for thorough visual image analysis by a TSA officer. If a bag requires further screening, TSA officers will inspect it to ensure that a threat item is not contained inside.
