Dayton International Airport in the US will get federal funding to have a new inline baggage handling system with enhanced explosive detection technology.

The Department of Homeland Security has approved $10m for the new equipment, which is expected to accelerate the passenger check-in process and improve airport security.

The system will replace five stand-alone screening machines and does not require passengers to have their luggage screened individually.

Additionally, the system has on-screen resolution capabilities, lessening the number of rescans and physical bag searches needed.

Work is scheduled to start early in 2010 and take a year to complete.
