In the summer of 2000, the National Safe Skies Alliance awarded a project to the Applied Visualization Center at the University of Tennessee to develop a 3D computer tool to assist the US Federal Aviation Administration security group, now the Transportation Security Administration, in evaluating new equipment and procedures to improve airport checkpoint security. At the time of this writing, numerous detection equipment models, three specific airports, and a placement and passenger flow simulation tool for airport security planners have been developed. Similar tools have been constructed for simulating cargo/baggage inspection and other airport security operations. An extension of the original effort to consolidate the tools is currently underway.
