US Transportation Security Administration Deploys QinetiQ’s New Airport Security Technology


The next evolution of mass transit safety, SPO Technology protects public safety and preserves individual privacy

QinetiQ North America’s Technology Solutions Group announced that the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) deployed its new mass transit security solution at the Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP) International Airport to enhance security measures surrounding the 2008 Republican National Convention.

TSA used QinetiQ’s groundbreaking millimetre wave, passive stand-off detection solution – called “SPO Technology” – to scan for weapons and explosive materials in and near MSP International Airport. SPO Technology has already proven successful in both air and surface transport use. TSA for the very first time operationally deployed this new threat technology solution at the Denver International Airport during the 2008 Democratic National Convention.
