Rohde & Schwarz receives transportation security administration award

Rohde & Schwarz it has won a $10,967,200.00 award from TSA to supply its QPS201 UHD AIT security scanners to US airport security screening checkpoints.


“We are thrilled to receive this award and supply TSA’s airport security screening checkpoints with  the R&S UHD QPS201 AIT,” said Frank Dunn, CEO of Rohde & Schwarz USA, Inc. “This award will expand the growing number of US airports, air carriers, and the hundreds of airports world-wide,  that utilize our innovative R&S QPS on-person screening technology to support high-volume and  highly effective checkpoint security screening operations.” “TSA’s investment in the QPS will  further expand Rohde & Schwarz’s economic impact and create jobs at our facilities in Maryland  and Texas.” 

“This award from TSA is a major achievement for Rohde & Schwarz,” said Andreas Haegele, Vice  President of Microwave Imaging. “Our QPS on-person screening technology is the first new body  scanner to be qualified and procured by TSA in more than a decade and we look forward to  delivering our distinctive passenger-friendly solution to TSA’s US airport checkpoints and the  opportunity to support the TSA mission.” 

The R&S UHD QPS201 uses safe, millimeter wave radio frequency technology to rapidly and  accurately screen passengers for concealed threats. The system requires only a few milliseconds to scan passengers and its open design and hands-down scan pose makes security screening easy and  accessible for travelers. The R&S UHD QPS201 achieved TSA qualification in 2022, approving it for  use in US airport security screening checkpoints and has achieved the highest levels of the  European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) approvals, with more than 1,000 systems deployed in  the world’s busiest airports and security screening operations. In the US, the R&S UHD QPS201 is  currently deployed at Denver International Airport (DEN), LaGuardia International Airport (LGA),  Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), Newark International Airport (EWR), Las Vegas McCarran  International Airport (LAS) and Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA).
