Pod-Based Self-Service Screening Fact Sheet


The S&T Screening at Speed Program, along with the TSA Innovation Task Force, is developing a pod-based self-service screening checkpoint for PreCheck® travelers to increase autonomy, reduce pat downs and bag inspections, and give Transportation Security Officers (TSOs) more time to assist other passengers. The futuristic pod-based checkpoint design offers an exclusive experience for travelers to go at their own pace, ideally reducing stress and increasing traveler satisfaction at the checkpoint.
