Tracking Flyers

Our team has been tasked with associating passengers with their carry-on items specifically within the security checkpoint areas of an airport.


With over two million passengers who fly daily, airport security is a top priority for the Department of Homeland Security’s Explosives Division within the Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) and Transportation Security Administration (TSA). Our goal is to aid in the development of technology that will detect indirect and direct attempts of non-nuclear explosives attacks in airports. This will be done by identifying and tracking a passenger and his/her carry-on items. Follow our progress and ideas in the weekly updates section!
