TSA 95% Failure Rate Calls for Security System Automation

Today, American tax payers spend about $7 Billion annually on the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) which several studies have show misses nearly 95% of guns and weapons during inspection at airports and public facilities (CNN Report 2015).

For those of us who have been watching the TSA, the 95% number wasn’t that much of a surprise. The TSA has been failing these sorts of tests since its inception:failures in 2003, a 91% failure rate at Newark Liberty International in 2006, a 75% failure rate at Los Angeles International in 2007, more failures in 2008. And those are just the public test results; I’m sure there are many more similarly damning reports the TSA has kept secret out of embarrassment reports James Dean @ iHumanMedia.com.

Many travelers and government officials are calling for better solutions that reduce wait times at airports and improve safety concerns. It’s simply a matter of smarter automated systems that available now using intelligent machines, facial recognition, finger print and hazardous materials sensors throughout the U.S. public transportation infrastructure.

The autonomous technology exits already to save money and implement tighter security for the public. We can really make an impact on improving the public experience in airports, events and schools now says Mr. Dean. It’s a matter of removing politics from the equation to embed a smarter, more effective public safety U.S. security plan.

Using automated self-service intelligent machines like the Qylatron™ Entry Experience Solution; we can speed-up wait times at airports and stadiums while significantly increasing security for people. Installing better security automated machines is far more cost effective just .20 per bag; saving BILLIONS of dollars each year in the United States. 

Multiple layer transportation security at public facilities will involve the following;

  1. Automated Intelligent Machines for Self-Service Baggage Clearance like Qylatron™
  2. Facial recognition video Surveillance  that’s non-evasive live monitoring of foot-traffic during events and venues such as airports 
  3. Finger print entry checkpoints at airports, schools and public transportation sites
  4. Embedded sensor technology throughout public facilities to detect hazardous materials
  5. Intelligence signal and human to identify and track individuals that may cause harm
