TSA Answers Questions About Enhanced Screening at Airports

The initial furor and shock over the enhanced airport screening techniques by the TSA seems to have subsided But with the holiday travel season in force, and continued questions about the security procedures at airports, we posed questions for the TSA: Some skeptics who question the need for the enhanced scanning devices have suggested that former DHS head, Michael Chertoff (and Tom Ridge as well), now a lobbyist in the security industry representing the manufacturers of the enhanced scanning machines, as having some role in the government's decision to spend $160 million on the new scanning machines. Can you comment on the role these lobbyists played in the decision to install the new scanners? TSA has been using the scanners since 2007, long before Mr.

TSA Answers Questions About Enhanced Screening at Airports 1

Chertoff left DHS and now I do not believe he is a registered lobbyist. I would recommend you check with his firm on that. (See Marcus Baram's reporting ).

Why wouldn't the government make more use of bomb-sniffing dogs, and use that as a first-level of security before requiring the more enhanced scanner and then, as a third level of enhanced security, the aggressive pat-down? TSA uses explosive detection K9s at airports nationwide for numerous security purposes as well as at major mass transit systems across the country. TSA screens 2 million people per day.

Your recommendation does not seem possible given the number of people who fly daily. (See more . What most people are upset about, it seems, is that everyone is undergoing these enhanced, aggressive checks, even three-year olds and 90-year olds.

Is that true that everyone is undergoing? I don't think that's what most people are upset about because "everyone" is not undergoing "aggressive" checks. True, TSA does screen all travelers equally, however, thorough pat downs are only necessary if a person alarms at the walk through metal detector or in the body scanner.

They are also employed if a passenger is offered the body scanner and chooses not to get scanned with this technology. Only a very small percentage of passengers require pat downs -- only about 3% in fact. Rather than subjecting everyone to the enhanced body scanner or pat-down, critics have said that there should be more of a focus on behavioral profiling and background checks of travelers - and mention Israel's security system as an example.

This country has laws against profiling, but is the DHS/TSA considering some more focus? Screening is not random, however, TSA does employ a behavior detection program at over 160 airports nationwide and the techniques TSA uses are modeled after the Israeli system. TSA and security experts alike agree that profiling is not an effective form of security.

TSA has Behavior Detection Officers who utilize non-intrusive behavior observation and analysis techniques to identify potentially high-risk passengers. They screen travelers for involuntary physical and physiological reactions that people exhibit in response to a fear of being discovered, and may refer them for additional screening. Referrals are based on specific observed behaviors only, not on one's appearance, race, ethnicity or religion.

BDOs add an element of unpredictability to the security screening process that is easy for passengers to navigate but difficult for terrorists to manipulate. It serves as an important additional layer of security in the airport environment, requires no additional specialized screening equipment, can easily be deployed to other modes of transportation and presents yet one more challenge the terrorists need to overcome in attempt to defeat our security system. BDOs are currently operating at approximately 161 airports nationwide.

The TSA received terrible publicity when Tom Sawyer , a 61-year old bladder cancer survivor, underwent a rough pat-down by the security agent at Detroit Metropolitan Airport, causing his urine bag to spill its contents onto his shirt and pants. Why wouldn't there be procedures to assist people with medical conditions? Is there a need for better training?

TSA has in place procedures to assist people with medical conditions. Security officers are trained to perform the pat downs in a respectful manner, using very specific techniques. When an officer deviates from these techniques, they are provided additional training.

TSA has established a program for screening of persons with disabilities and their associated equipment, mobility aids, and devices. Our program covers all categories of disabilities (mobility, hearing, visual, and hidden). As part of that program, we established a coalition of over 70 disability-related groups and organizations to help us understand the concerns of persons with disabilities and medical conditions.

These groups have assisted TSA with integrating the unique needs of persons with disabilities into our airport operations. I have always been troubled by the focus specifically on airline travel, when there have been terror attacks in London, Madrid, Moscow and other places directed on subways, commuter rail, passenger rail and ships. Why isn't there comparable security put on these other forms of mass-travel?

No need to be troubled. TSA has been working with mass transit and the maritime industry for years. TSA Surface Transportation Security Inspectors, from the TSA Office of Security Operations, conduct on-site inspections of mass transit and passenger rail agencies and maintain collaborative working relationships with industry representatives.

They work closely with the TSA Mass Transit Security Division for support and programmatic direction. Do you have any tips or assurances to the traveling public? Dress the Part : Transportation security officers have to identify any metal that is detected at the checkpoint.

If the metal detector alarms when you pass through, you will be required to undergo additional screening. This includes a hand-wand and pat-down inspection. Body Piercings .

Certain metal body piercings may cause you to alarm at the metal detector, which will result in you getting additional screening. If additional screening is required, you may ask to remove your body piercing in private as an alternative to the pat-down search. Head Coverings .

You are permitted to wear head coverings and religious garments during the screening process. You may be directed to additional screening if your headwear or clothing (religious or otherwise) is loose fitting or large enough to hide prohibited items. Shoes .

Travelers are required to remove their shoes before entering the walk-through metal detector at all U.S. airports and put them through the x-ray machine for inspection.

This allows officers to see if the shoes have been tampered with in any way. Have Ready : The items you'll need to present to a Transportation Security Officer at the checkpoint are Boarding pass and government-issued photo Identification. TSA encourages each adult traveler to keep his/her airline boarding pass and government-issued photo ID available until exiting the security checkpoint (children are not required to show identification).

If you do not have identification (if it is lost, stolen, etc.), you will be required to provide the document checking officer with some information to help verify your identity. This will slow down your screening process and will result in additional screening.

(See more ) After the holiday season (or if I am correct and there is a concern for heightened terror threat at this time), do you expect the TSA will use a more selective screening process? I can't speculate on what will transpire after the holiday season, but TSA will continue to employ security measures designed to address current intelligence and threat information. ______________ 2010 Travel Features Syndicate, a division of Workstyles, Inc.

Portable 3d X-ray Machine Based on Stargazing Technology Could soon also Be Used to Detect Cancer
Portable 3d X-ray Machine Based on Stargazing Technology Could soon also Be Used to Detect Cancer
A portable X-ray imaging machine used to track stars millions of miles away could be developed for detecting early cancers.2D X-ray machines can often miss signs of cancer until the disease is advanced, but 3D scanners provide a much fuller picture and gives a higher accuracy in disease detection.Unlike large and expensive traditional 2D X-ray machines they are portable - allowing for an X-ray to be taken in a GP's office.This makes the scans and technology cheaper to operate than the hefty hospital based machines.Scroll down for videoCurrently, X-ray is the main imaging method used in healthcare diagnosis and provides a 2D picture of patient's body.But images made using 2D X-ray scanners not only fail to be detailed enough for accurate diagnosis, the hefty machines mean that additional trips to specialist units are often required.While CT scanner do offer 3D imaging, they are equally heavy and high cost, and imaging is often delayed as a result.The new 3D scanner, which the UK Space Agency is spending 1million to develop, will be based on the same technology as that used for studying stars and promises to be low cost.This is partly because the Adaptix 3D X-ray machine is a 'miniaturised machine' that allows patients get X-rays inside GP surgeries, reducing the demand for hospital scanners.The machine include field emitters used previously by spacecrafts belonging to the European Space Agency in the mapping of stars using X-ray fibres - a project known as XMM Newton in which the UK played a major role.They also emit less than 10 per cent of the radiation from low-dose CT scans and only one to two per cent of the more widely used, full-dose diagnostic CT.Professor Tony Young, NHS Englands national clinical director for innovation, said: 'Using stargazing technology to spot cancer is exactly the type of advanced innovation that could improve care for patients by speeding up diagnosis and helping to deliver our Long Term Plan which will save half a million lives.According to the UK government's website:'The demanding environment of space means that investments in the sector generate new knowledge and innovations that extend far beyond the space industry.
How to Travel on an Airplane with a Camera: Packing It Right, X-ray Machines, and Magnetic Scanners
How to Travel on an Airplane with a Camera: Packing It Right, X-ray Machines, and Magnetic Scanners
Pack RightYour first step to guaranteeing camera safety during airplane travel is to pack correctly. You should always bring your camera and any delicate equipment with you as carry-on because, no matter how careful airport personal might be, your check-in luggage will be jostled about a fair bit, risking shock damage to the camera. Additionally, the luggage hold can suffer extremes in temperature, which can potentially damage your camera, whether from condensation or from just frying the circuits. Most camera equipment will be fine as checked luggage, on the other hand, if packed with a reasonable amount of padding.Most airplanes have the policy of allowing one personal item and one piece of luggage as carry-on. Itd be a good idea to bring your camera case as that personal item. This will ensure that it is with you at all times so that you can make sure no damage will be dealt to it. A well-padded camera case is a good idea, not just for airplane travel, but also for travel in general. Placing it in the above-head compartments may result in some unwanted jostling, though placing it under the chair in front of you may result in a bit of nudging of the foot. Use your best judgement.Some people have expressed worry that the acceleration that one undergoes during take off can harm the camera. Dont. Even the most poorly made of cameras can undergo such forces just fine, as long as it wont aggravate something thats already broken. So, bring along your camera in peace.Will X-Rays Damage My Camera or Memory?Contrary to the fears of many photographers, standard x-ray equipment has an extraordinarily low risk of damaging your digital camera. Im fact, no digital media can really be affected by x-rays, so dont fret about your laptop either. Undeveloped film, on the other hand, may be wiped by the process, so if you have any then request an individual inspection free of x-rays and and magnetic devices. This is guaranteed by the US Federal Aviation Administration, and similar laws exist in other countries as well.However, if the bag holding your digital camera for whatever reason fails inspection by the x-ray machine, you may be in troublemaybe.Dangers of Magnetic Scanning DevicesThe next step in airport security is using magnetic devices, in particular, metal detecting wands. While these wont necessarily damage your digital equipment, the risk is there. If it comes to an individual inspection, then request to remove your camera and have that inspected without the use of a metal detecting device. So, its probably a good idea to take out your camera before it goes through the x-ray machine, just so that it doesnt get confused with anything that might result in the whole bag being magnetically scanned.CustomsWhile customs wont typically be bothered by possession of photography equipment, if youll be traveling through some of the less well regulated places in the world, consider carry some sort of proof of purchase with you to prove that you did indeed buy your equipment outside of the country, such as a copy of the receipt. Some countries may require that you declare photography equipment, or even search through the files and film, depending on the journalism and censorship laws within the country. Check out the laws of the country before you go so you dont run into any potential trouble.
