Following September 11, 2001, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) was created to strengthen the security of the nation’s transportation systems and ensure the freedom of movement for people and commerce. Today, TSA secures the nation’s airports and screens all commercial airline passengers and baggage. TSA uses a risk-based strategy and works closely with transportation, law enforcement and intelligence communities to set the standard for excellence in transportation security.
The TSA charged with protecting the nation’s transportation systems, selected SDI to implement megapixel camera technology at its checkpoints throughout two International airports. They were seeking a solution that helped them to quickly identify and resolve potential security threats and resolve disputes during the passenger screening process. In addition to the checkpoint camera solution, the TSA was also looking for high powered, megapixel cameras that could be installed in various exterior locations that allowed full airfield surveillance utilizing the megapixel camera technology.
The TSA desired to use megapixel cameras for forensic investigative purposes at each TSA checkpoint in the airport, allowing the TSA to investigate possible incidents at each screening lane and x-ray machine. Because of the high resolution and the ability to digitally zoom into the image while retaining the entire field of view, the megapixel will cameras significantly improve the quality of information that is captured at the Checkpoint areas. Additional projected system benefits include:
SDI has delivered an end-to-end megapixel video solution that combines full checkpoint and airfield domain coverage with the ability to drill down into scene detail on live and recorded high definition video with no loss to full domain video coverage.
