Telos Identity Management Solutions (Telos ID) has secured a contract from Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) to provide Designated Aviation Channeling (DAC) services that will process worker background checks at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in the US.
LAWA owns and operates Los Angeles International (LAX) and Van Nuys (VNY) general aviation airports.
Telos ID’s Transportation Security Administration (TSA) approved DAC services enhances efficiency and flexibility in background checks and credentialing operations at the airport.
Aviation channelling services will facilitate submissions of workers’ biographic and biometric data in order to carry out background checks of individuals working in secure areas of US commercial airports.
The company has already conducted on-site training for both DAC and Rap Back and integrated with the LAX credentialing management system.
Telos ID aviation security vice-president Dawn Lucini said: “The DAC services deployment at Los Angeles International Airport is notable for its size.
“With more than 54,000 badge holders, we have streamlined the worker background check process, while upholding the high-security standards at LAX in an effective and efficient manner.”
The DAC services comply with the requirements of TSA and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for handling personally identifiable information.
DAC is an encrypted, web-based solution which allows users to securely access the system wherever they have an internet connection.
Featuring a modular design, the solution supports the needs of airports and air carriers, while allowing users to perform multiple functions on one platform.
Lucini added: “We are pleased to support the city of Los Angeles and its world-class airport in their efforts to provide excellence in identity management services, all while reducing costs and providing superior customer care and flexibility.”
