TSA Awards Screening Technology Contracts

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) announced Tuesday that it awarded contracts worth $2.3 million to three companies that will test their screening systems at checkpoints in major airports in Phoenix, Los Angeles, and New York, according to the Associated Press.

The companies include: American Science & Engineering, an x-ray technology firm; L-3 Communications, a military equipment company; and OSI Systems Inc., an electronics maker owned by Rapiscan Systems.

The technologies screen passengers without physical contact by showing an image of the body that detects weapons, explosives and other metallic and nonmetallic threats, the TSA told the Associated Press.
