TSA Innovation for Aviation Security Broad Agency Announcement

URL:  https://www.fbo.gov/spg/DHS/TSA/HQTSA/HSTS04-16-R-BAA001/listing.html

TSA is seeking individual solutions or processes that can address a component of the screening system or solutions that integrate multiple elements of the screening process (integrated systems).

These solutions make up the individual, critical components of the passenger and accessible property screening system, checked baggage screening systems, and of the “curb-to-gate” design. Solutions should be developed with the understanding that TSA is moving towards a “system of systems” approach in alignment with the future TSA Open System Architecture.

TSA is also interested in solutions that integrate individual components categorized in section A to achieve greater operational capability benefit than an individual solution. These solutions may include screening and non-screening capabilities, as well as potential adjustments in the checkpoint design, checked baggage screening and resolution and processes. These solutions are expected to improve efficiency and/or effectiveness by alleviating operational and security issues that may derive from the projected increase in traveling public or the evolving threat landscape.
