  • Logan to purchase systems for inspecting underside of vehicles
    Boston’s Logan International Airport will purchase inspection systems capable of detecting foreign objects such as explosives on the underside of vehicles headed onto the airport tarmac. "Our airport security program is multilayered and constantly evolving, and we look to use new technologies where feasible,” Massport spokesman Matt Brelis said. “We work very hard to make sure that our facilities are safe, secure and operate efficiently.” A request for information will be released today.

  • TSA sees uptick in banned items
    Items confiscated recently at Miami International Airport include an "explosively viable" 18th-century cannonball, a lead hammer and a fueled chainsaw. Officials say the Transportation Security Administration has recently seen an increase in banned items because of "absentmindedness [or] a failure to peruse a bag that was last used for a road trip," TSA spokeswoman Sari Koshetz. "As more time has passed and 9/11 is not as vivid a memory, the trend is escalating." Miami New Times (9/20) sm_share.gifLinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

  • Blog: NextGen needs greater buy-in from political leaders
    The Next Generation Air Transportation System needs to receive greater support from lawmakers making tough decisions about the budget, Jack Olcott writes.
