TSA testing advanced airport security technology

As the Transportation Security Administration field tests advanced screening technologies for passengers at an airport teminal in Las Vegas, researchers at the University of Rhode Island are also developing new ways to detect explosives that may even surpass the abilities of bomb-sniffing dogs. Kris Van Cleave reports.

    TSA aka Theatrical Security Association because that’s all they are is a joke Christ why can’t we actually have a decent traveling experience without stripping our shoes off and being strip searched by a fat sweaty man who couldn’t go through the police academy.

    I got screened along with everyone else going into the DM fricking V today. The DMV needs detectors?
    All this extra security is about is money, the gov and their contractors want more money.
    911, thee biggest attack on any airlines and our nation, could of been prevented with locked cockpit doors. Think about that. Locked doors vs patriot act, dhs, loss of privacy forever, millions dead in illegal war, and on and on.
    When I fly I do it privately.

    Eindhoven has this system already btw

  4. Karina Jiménez on June 4, 2020 at 9:53 am

    Presidential candidate Andrew Yang is absolutely right about the 4th industrial revolution.

    Whole bunch of nudes should buy plane tickets and go through there 😂go naked 😜

    They REALLLLLYY don’t want people having bottles of water

    Mark of the beast is coming

    Let’s just hope you ain’t getting radiated as you pass through 🤣

  9. ConnerL 51 on June 4, 2020 at 9:58 am

    Abolish the TSA

    Lol I love the title "advanced" as if it was from the future. Advanced in the sense that it’s new to Americans. Not so much for other countries like Germany that have been using this technology for years already

  12. Chilled Sea on June 4, 2020 at 10:01 am

    We have them in dublin, no bother.

  13. Createx on June 4, 2020 at 10:04 am

    Where are the damn other genders

  14. al fatcat on June 4, 2020 at 10:06 am

    That scanner will be a problem for someone who says they’re gender fluid

  15. Arcadio 238 on June 4, 2020 at 10:09 am

    Way to go tsa thank you from saving us from those evil water bottles

  16. ProudestSheep on June 4, 2020 at 10:09 am

    The TSA: legally violate people, feel them up and steal their things, also force them to buy overpriced airport water, because outside water is super duper Uber dangerous

  17. Nickbiz247 on June 4, 2020 at 10:09 am

    More invasive technology from the most useless agency of our government.

  18. Carlos Tab on June 4, 2020 at 10:10 am

    That shadow looks nothing like a human. More like an alien.

  19. Kalas Atwater on June 4, 2020 at 10:11 am

    Does it detect cash hidden in an inside pocket sewed inside your jeans?

  20. Moshe B on June 4, 2020 at 10:12 am

    Here’s a way to get things moving faster, more efficiently and more secure. Give the problem to the private market, not the government.

  21. Linda Engstrom on June 4, 2020 at 10:13 am

    It’s been proven that dogs work better than their scanners

  22. Sheldon Cooper on June 4, 2020 at 10:13 am

    I opt out! The government has consistently lied to us, claiming they don’t store body scanners images, but Freedom of Information act proves they are storing images. They also consistently downplay the cancer risk, despite the TSA’s unions demanding dosimeters for their employees. These scanners do not go under the same rigorous testing procedures as medical devices like X-rays. My father never understood my beliefs on the TSA, but I trust God, not the government.

    That alien shadow makes this video suspicous

  25. rozynmike on June 4, 2020 at 10:14 am

    FYI rich people don’t go through these check points. If you have a private plane you don’t have to go through TSA. I wonder who transfers the drugs.

  26. jeanpauljh on June 4, 2020 at 10:15 am

    While the chemistry part of the report is interesting, the "Innovation Checkpoint" shows off technologies that have been used at a number of overseas airports for several years now. Not sure why the TSA is so excited to be catching up to 2015…

  27. Johnny Walker on June 4, 2020 at 10:15 am


  28. Ok on June 4, 2020 at 10:17 am

    Uh oh. They only had options for 2 genders! Cant wait to hear the complaints roll in.

  29. Football on June 4, 2020 at 10:19 am

    Okay but how often are bombs found at tsa checkpoints? Shouldn’t they be trying to find concealable knives and guns?

  30. Henry Mueller on June 4, 2020 at 10:21 am

    To bad they miss around 90 percent of what they are looking for

  31. Russell Juma on June 4, 2020 at 10:22 am

    Didn’t realize Las Vegas was 2,700 miles away from Los Angeles. 2:00

    Wow Yang is actually on point with automation. Huh.

  34. Steve Frederico on June 4, 2020 at 10:25 am

    Passenger being interviewed: I just wish there was a way I didn’t have to take off my shoes.

    Me: TSA PreCheck?

  35. william willie on June 4, 2020 at 10:25 am

    I can’t believe people fly. Land of the free what a joke

  36. Mid evil on June 4, 2020 at 10:26 am

    They need to get a life

  37. Chrismarie Martínez on June 4, 2020 at 10:28 am

    My dad is tso i am not lying

  38. Noah Oxley on June 4, 2020 at 10:29 am

    Hey that might be my mom

  39. XpR Chaos on June 4, 2020 at 10:31 am

    As a child I got held by security for bringing my anki overdrive cars to the airport, took them 15 minutes to validate that they’re safe.

  40. getminesallday24 on June 4, 2020 at 10:32 am

    Dude has male camel toe

  41. Mid evil on June 4, 2020 at 10:34 am

    Stupid they already see you naked look up high resolution tsa xray scanner

  42. bay area415 on June 4, 2020 at 10:34 am

  43. theotherguy 187 on June 4, 2020 at 10:37 am

  44. Andy Wu on June 4, 2020 at 10:37 am

    I stick with the Isreli method a professionally trained human. You can use all the gadgets you want but nothing beats the human instinct of security expert. TSA+ Gadgets its just another 911 waiting to happen.

  48. Brian Melvin on June 4, 2020 at 10:41 am

    Sure show the technology and give away the weaknesses, great job American media, u should all be hung for treason.

  49. Alan Kuo on June 4, 2020 at 10:45 am

    nice another feature for nothing

  50. First Name on June 4, 2020 at 10:46 am

    The TSA is a joke. All they do is grope and steal from people. Its better to fly private. They have never prevented a terrorist act.
