PVD Hosts New TSA Technology

T.F. Green International Airport (PVD) and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will begin installing state-of-the-art scanners at the airport security checkpoint that uses computed tomography (CT) technology to provide advanced explosives detection capabilities when screening carry-on bags.

The new CT screening equipment shoots hundreds of images with an X-ray camera that spins around the conveyor belt to provide officers with a 3D picture of a carry-on bag to ensure it does not contain a threat.

Once the installation is complete, travelers will experience fewer manual bag checks and will no longer be required to remove electronics and other items from carry-on baggage, resulting in improved passenger checkpoint experiences.
