2021 TSA Dual-View Mandate

The U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) announced that effective January 1, 2021, they will require dual view x-ray screening for all air cargo. This mandate requires airlines and freight forwarders to upgrade from existing single-view systems and purchase dual-view or multi-view systems for cargo screening. With this advancement, TSA aims to ensure all domestic U.S. and international flights are safe for passengers, crew, and cargo. 

Originally announced in 2014, TSA cited this 6-year notice to protect the aviation industry and provide more effective screenings. Dual-view systems offer advanced technology and imaging capability, much greater than single-view, to better detect threats. Astrophysics dual-view systems have advanced detection capabilities and improved steel penetration. Installed with the industry’s best-in-class software, operators can recognize objects, identify materials, and isolate threats with greater speed and accuracy.
