It’s all over the news recently, airport security screening wait times are getting increasingly unmanageable. As the summer approaches, there are predictions that the problem will only be exacerbated. Trackforce, specializing in software to streamline operational management of aviation security, is offering the ideal solution to mitigate the long lines.
Why the Long Lines?
TSA blames the extended wait times on a combination of more travelers, an increase in the volume of carry-on bags, fewer TSA officers and the need for tighter security measures after the attacks in Brussels and Paris.
Investigations into the TSA by the Government Accountability Office, the Department of Homeland Security Office of Inspector General and the House Committee on Oversight have uncovered several issues with the agency that won’t be remedied by simply adding staff, reports NorthJersey.com. The investigations found that the TSA also wastes “hundreds of millions of dollars on malfunctioning and unnecessary technology”.
This week, The Kansas City Star reported that “as TSA takes heat over long airport lines, KCI travelers take it easy”. A reason KCI travelers take it easy is because KCI utilizes GuardTek Aviation to manage its screening process.
GuardTek Aviation has been specifically designed to support the airport security screening process, providing accurate and real time tracking of security officers and the screening process itself. Supervisors are able to track staff in real time, a key element in providing efficient and comprehensive airport security.
The most pertinent integrated feature of the software is queue flow technology, which is connected to a waiting time calculation system to allow for the appropriate amount of personnel dispatched based on the queue and expected passenger flow.
The software also monitors the time security officers spend at screening (x-ray) to ensure enough time is spent to keep their credentials.
