b'BAGGAGEFLL 19to build the new checked baggage inspection system on top of the existing one, which was located in a tight space and had to continue operating at its regular hurried pace. Celestine refers to the strategy as creating space within a space.The new checked baggage inspection system that was installed meets TSAs latest Planning Design Guidelines Standards (PDGS), which require air-conditioning and minimize manual lifting for inspection personnel. Preliminary planning and design work involved months of coordination and review by airport stakeholders to define the final configuration. The system that resulted leverages in-line explosives detection machines and integrates with existing induction lines and make-up units. Celestine notes that due to the age of the previous system, there was no realistic opportunity to enhance it to current TSA design standards. The new system works with the terminals existing ticket counter and curbside inputs and includes four CTX 9800 explosives detection machines from Smiths Detection. Each is designed to screen up to 640 bags per hour. Baggage is fed from existing input lines into the new system for screening, and pieces that clear levels 1 and 2 are routed to existing make-up units. Baggage requiring level 3 screening is routed to the new checked baggage resolution area, which includes 21 workstations.The previous system required TSA employees to lift each checked bag at least twice.
