Futuristic superscanners are being installed at US airports: what are they capable of?

The Transportation Security Administration will deploy futuristic new scanners at airport security checkpoints that can detect prohibited items and possibly even speed up the screening process, reports Travel Leisure.

New full-size computed tomography (CT) x-ray systems are capable of creating three-dimensional images of carry-on items, allowing officers to detect things like weapons, explosives and other prohibited items, according to the agency. New machines will also allow for potentially speeding up the process.

The agency expects to begin rolling out the new technology in the summer.

“These actions are another important step in enhancing aviation security,” TSA Administrator David Pekoske said in a statement. “They provide our frontline officers with one of the best tools for screening passenger carry-on baggage, while also improving the passenger experience by allowing passengers to carry more items in their carry-on baggage during screening.”

Once the 3D image is generated, TSA staff will be able to "view and rotate the image in three axes to analyze and identify any dangerous items that may be in a passenger's luggage."

The agency plans to order up to 469 basic systems and 469 full-size systems, which are equipped with fully automated screening lanes and automatic return of containers and increase passenger throughput.

While the new machines will allow passengers to store more items in their bags, those who are on the program TSA PreCheck, are already allowed to keep liquids and laptops in their bags, and they don't have to take off their shoes during the screening process. A program that is one of the programs Department of Homeland Security's Trusted Traveler Programs and costs $85 to renew in person or $70 to renew online, also uses a dedicated security line.

The agency is also expanding TSA PreCheck and recently opened its first international office in the Bahamas.
