Partnership integrates technology, science and engineering to develop an Open Threat Assessment Platform (OTAP) for Transportation Security Equipment
Davis, CA, Livermore, CA and Albuquerque, NM (PRWEB) October 13, 2015
Sandia National Laboratories, the nations premier science and engineering laboratory for national security and technology innovation and Stratovan Corporation, a leading software house and developer of next-generation interactive visual analysis software for 3D imaging, today announced a multi-phase partnership aimed at establishing a dynamic screening system that enables seamless aviation security integration.
The Open Threat Assessment Platform (OTAP) project will lay the foundation for:
- The standardization of data, images, and interfaces
- A strengthened and vibrant threat detection market
- Dynamic, risk-based screening
- Human-centric design of threat detection technology
These concepts will be prototyped with a carry-on baggage x-ray prototype system implementing an open system architecture. This project will lay the foundation for faster product development cycles, and for future efforts expanding to other security technologies across the TSA screening equipment architecture.
“We are proud to partner with Sandia National Laboratories,” said Jim Olson, CEO of Stratovan Corporation. “It is a critical time right now in aviation security and teaming up with Sandia National Laboratories enables us to further establish ourselves as a leader in providing system and software solutions to the aviation security market.”
An integrated system with standardization of data, images, and user-interfaces better equips airports to deal with continually changing threats – and increases the cost-effectiveness of security solutions – by leveraging expertise and knowledge obtained at each screening stage. It also increases access to the security-technology market for vendors with newly developed technologies, which can be implemented and deployed more quickly and at a lower acquisition cost.
The collaboration between Sandia National Laboratories and Stratovan Corporation will enhance both traveler safety and screening process efficiency, resulting in a much better overall experience.
