- The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has been spending $18.6 million it received in funding in order to develop, test and deploy “non-binary screening systems,” according to a new report.
- The funding from the FY22 Omnibus Appropriations fund, Biden’s yearly government spending budget, has been used to improve Advanced Imaging Technology (AIT) units in airport checkpoints, working with the manufacturer to update the algorithm for “increased accuracy and efficiency.”
- The new technology will roll out at airports in January, but individuals who feel their gender was incorrectly assumed now have the option to ask for a re-screening before submitting to a physical pat-down.
