  • Miami airport installs new security system
    Miami International Airport has overhauled its entire surveillance system and has installed surveillance cameras on the airport’s interior and exterior. The system also includes ground-based radar, video analytics and secure wireless networking technology. The system will help eliminate false positive reports of security breaches, said Mark Storek, a client executive with GTSI, which installed the cameras. "One of the concerns with any of the security networks that are being installed is operator fatigue. You get a lot of false positives. So, the idea was to have at least two, if not three different sources to confirm targets and then be able to effectively track them," he said.

  • TSA plans to suspend, fire baggage screeners at Boston airport
    The Transportation Security Administration will fire or suspend 20 baggage screeners at Boston’s Logan International Airport. Six of the individuals did not always send bags requiring secondary screening to additional inspections. The TSA hopes to fire those workers. Meanwhile, the 14 workers that the TSA hopes to suspend sometimes did not give screening machines their full attention and instead read newspapers or talked on the phone. "All TSA employees are held to the highest standards of conduct and accountability. These standards are critical to our work and TSA’s commitment to the safety of the traveling public," TSA spokesman David Castelveter said.

  • FAA will reexamine rules on device usage aboard planes
    The Federal Aviation Administration has announced that it will form a study group that will review policies on in-flight usage of electronic devices. The six-month review could result in airlines being able to allow passengers to use their devices. "With so many different types of devices available, we recognize that this is an issue of consumer interest. Safety is our highest priority, and we must set appropriate standards as we help the industry consider when passengers can use the latest technologies safely during a flight," Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said.
