The TSA Innovation Task Force is piloting a new means of screening airport personnel at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport, utilizing new technology to detect hidden objects, both metallic and non-metallic. The new technology is intended to strengthen airport security while improving the efficiency of the screening process.
