Optosecurity and Vanderlande’s integrated ASL system has been approved by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to move to airport operational deployments after successful completion of TSA’s integration assessment testing. Vanderlande and Optosecurity’s ASL will be deployed for Operational Readiness Tests at US Category-X airports this summer.
Vanderlande’s SCANNOJET and Optosecurity’s eVelocity together successfully passed TSA’s Innovation Task Force’s ASL assessment testing which identifies and supports new capabilities to improve security and address key operational challenges such as passenger wait times at airport checkpoints. The approval makes the Vanderlande and Optosecurity solution available for selection by airport and airline carrier partners for deployment to airport operational assessments.
"We’re excited to have received TSA approval for our ASL solution" says Vanderlande’s Executive Vice President Airports, Andrew Manship, "and we look forward to providing a new ASL option to US airports and airline carriers when upgrading their security checkpoints. We have every confidence in our SCANNOJET system, and due to its modular design and configuration the Vanderlande and Optosecurity solution delivers proven increases in passenger throughput, enhancements to security and reductions in operational costs at the checkpoint. It will also significantly improve the passenger experience at airports."
Nick Porter, Vanderlande’s President Airports, North America, added, "In addition to the unique design advantages of the SCANNOJET ASL, Vanderlande’s strategy is to focus on the entire solution. We are debuting new innovations for fast installation and comprehensive service that will distinguish our solution above others, ensuring real benefits for Vanderlande’s US checkpoint customers, now and in the future."
"Optosecurity’s eVelocity solution powers and enables the integration of Vanderlande’s SCANNOJET ASL and is another example of how we support our aviation security partners," said Tim Mathews, Chief Executive Officer and President of Optosecurity. "eVelocity is an agnostic solution that gives airports, airlines and regulators the ability to choose and integrate the best of breed checkpoint technologies. Importantly, we can now provide TSA with a proven remote screening solution and a common user interface to reduce overall training costs."
