TSA Awards $20.3 Million to Milwaukee Airport for Baggage Screening

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) awarded approximately US$20.3 million to General Mitchell International Airport (MKE) in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, for the construction of a new inline baggage handling system designed to enhance TSA's efforts to strengthen security at airports.

"The automated baggage screening system at MKE will help transportation security officers detect dangerous items including explosives," said Louis Traverzo, Federal Security Director at MKE. "The system will also improve the experience for passengers, making it easier to check items and reduce the likelihood that their bags will need to be opened."

The approximately $20.3-million award will provide a fully automated inline baggage handling system to conduct 100-percent baggage screening and support the more than 8-million passengers traveling through the airport each year.
