TOPIC: Air Cargo R&D

 

DESCRIPTION

There is a dearth of screening technology geared to the air cargo environment. This limits efficiency, impedes commercial flows, and creates security gaps.

 

AFFECTS THESE INDUSTRY SEGMENTS

Forwarders, Airlines, Ground handlers, Shippers, Regulators, Posts, Airports

 

IMPACT

Authorized screening parties (forwarders, airlines, etc.) have limited options and must structure their operations to the types of screening equipment that are available.

 

TIACA ACTION

We have called for R&D geared to the cargo environment. We are leading this effort through our work on ASAC and through chairing the ASAC Air Cargo Subcommittee. The Subcommittee has created an R&D working group which will also work closely with the ASAC Technology Subcommittee. Its objectives will include identifying key channels for stakeholder input into R&D decisions, expanding the range of stakeholders consulted by TSA to include those who use the technology, and identification of capability gaps.
