Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) November 23, 2012
On November 23, 2012, travel company Surf Patch responded to a recent 4-Traders article about Verint Systems Inc. testing new key technologies to be implemented in future airport threat detection.
According to the 4-Traders article, “Verint, the TASS consortium initiator and coordinator, along with several key partners from leading European technology companies, launched the field testing of the TASS prototype in October 2012.” The article mentions that the field testing will test three pre-identified security threats that will allow members of the airport community to observe. The article states the the new system by Verint is called Total Airport Security Solution (TASS).
According to the article, “The purpose of TASS is to enable an advanced, integrated approach to airport security by creating an entire airport situation intelligence solution that provides real-time, accurate situational awareness to airport authorities.” The article mentions that TASS is a big step for airports in developing the model for integrated systems at airports. The article says it will be testing the TASS at the Heathrow Airport in London. According to Gideon Hazzani, TASS project coordinator, "Heathrow's sophisticated environment made it an attractive candidate for the trial.”
Travel company Surf Patch is excited about the recent news of TASS being tested for future airport use in hopes to help passengers flyclear. World traveler Takara Licausi stated, “With this program implemented in airports, passengers would feel much safer flying, and it may even help speed up airport security.”
