Skip the Line: Improving Transportation Security

Before the next time you fly, have you thought about how government can change your travel experience by reducing wait times and enhancing security? We have. Advances in biometrics, AI, and 3-D imaging provide fast forward capabilities that will change the way you fly this decade. DHS wants to work with you to automate and scale services and build new capabilities that keep pace with the rise in volume of the traveling public and complex threats. This ‘call to action’ will test your thinking on how technology can dramatically reduce wait times and improve the passenger experience and flow of commerce. Help DHS create innovative environments, so the airport of the future moves at your pace of life.
