US: Leidos to Upgrade ATL Security Checkpoints

Leidos has been selected to upgrade the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) checkpoints at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL).

These upgrades are part of an initiative led by the New-South Synergy joint venture to expand and enhance the airport’s security checkpoints using the latest technologies. This project aims to boost security at the airport while improving the passenger experience.

Leidos has deployed more than 2,400 millimetre wave body scanners at US and international airports and other facilities
Jonathan Stone, Director of Aviation and Division Manager at Leidos said:

“We are proud to work with New-South Synergy as a critical partner in its deployment of next generation security technologies. These upgrades represent the next step in the transformation of our nation’s aviation checkpoints. Together we seek to improve operational efficiency for airports and make travel more seamless for passengers.”

As part of the project, the security lanes at ATL’s Domestic Terminal Main Security Checkpoint will be upgraded with Leidos’ Advanced Imaging Technology (AIT).

This will include replacing the existing Pro:Vision 1 scanners with 10 new Pro:Vision 2 systems, which offer a more compact design and footprint alongside the continued millimetre wave technology.

Dan Wurzel, Senior Project Manager at New South Construction said:

“We are proud to partner with Leidos to help secure Hartsfield-Jackson's position as the busiest and most efficient airport in the world. The introduction of these new security technologies will enhance airport security operations, while improving the overall experience for Atlanta travellers.”
