According to Homeland Security Research Corporation’s (HSRC) market report- Aviation Security Technologies, Industry & Global Market 2019-2025, global passenger traffic has reached record levels as airports continued to make crucial contributions to furthering economic development and global connectivity. While strong competitive forces continue to drive innovation and improvements in efficiency and service for passengers, airports face the challenges of meeting the continuing global growth in demand for air services.
The US DHS (i.e., TSA) is responsible for securing nearly 440 federalized airports that facilitate upwards of 20,000 domestic flights per day and more than 2,000 outbound international flights per day.
In the U.S. and other countries, serious security deficiencies have been revealed in many of the security “layers” the TSA has put in place including:
- Concerns about the efficacy of airport screening
- Lack of security for air cargo
- Potential threat from shoulder-fired missiles
- Unauthorized access to aircrafts or other secure airport areas
- Passenger screening
- Employee screening vulnerabilities
- Lack of on-board security personnel
