At Tampa airport yesterday I saw two changes in security. In some lanes, TSA agents were swabbing passenger palms and running that through a Morpho sniffing machine. Also, every lane was going through full body scanners – millimeter wave machines.
Then in USA Today, I read TSA “is testing a system that checks identification and boarding passes by machine rather than the standard visual check by officers”
Of course, every thing the TSA does creates controversy. There are privacy, data archiving issues and health concerns with scanners, but good to see TSA continue to innovate with technology.
