Airports Receive $15.7 Million for Baggage Screening Systems

The Transportation Security Administration on September 25 announced that two airports have been awarded a total of $15.7 million for new in-line checked baggage screening systems. John Wayne Airport (SNA) in Orange County, CA received $8.8 million, while Kansas' Wichita Mid-Continent Airport (ICT) gets $6.9 million.
From TSA:
"Inline baggage handling systems use state-of-the-art technology to screen baggage for explosives quickly while streamlining the ticketing and boarding process. This eliminates the need for passengers to walk checked baggage to a screening location before proceeding to the security checkpoint. Additionally, the systems provide on-screen resolution capabilities for security officers screening baggage which reduces the number of re-scans and physical bag searches."
