$20.3 Million for New Checked Baggage Screening System at General Mitchell International Airport
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) today announced an award of approximately $20.3 million to General Mitchell International Airport (MKE) for the construction of a new in-line baggage handling system designed to enhance TSA’s efforts to strengthen security at airports.
“The automated baggage screening system at General Mitchell International Airport will help Transportation Security Officers efficiently detect dangerous items including explosives,” said General Mitchell International Airport Federal Security Director Louis Traverzo. “The system will also significantly 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 in-line baggage handling system to conduct 100 percent baggage screening and support the more than 8 million passengers traveling through General Mitchell International Airport each year.
