Safeguarding Grand Central Terminal Fact Sheet


More than three quarters of a million people pass through New York City’s Grand Central Terminal (GCT) every day. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) currently deploys sensor technology to detect chemical, biological, and radiological threats, but the agency wants to expand its capability to detect radiological releases in or around GCT.

The work described in this fact sheet has been completed. This fact sheet will remain published in the archives library for future reference. Please contact the National Urban Security Technology Laboratory at NUSTL@hq.dhs.gov for additional information on this work.
