INDIANAPOLIS -- New technology that will improve your safety and your experience is being tested at the Indianapolis International Airport.
Aging x-ray machines will be replaced with 3-D scanners that show TSA agents a 3-D scan and allow them to move a bag or even “virtually” remove some of the items inside bags, like laptops.
TSA Federal Security Directory Aaron Batt says Indianapolis is one of the first airports to get the scanners.
“This is actually the first airport build post 9-11 and when you look at this facility you’ll notice that it was built with security in mind,” said Batt.
The new technology means everything can stay inside your luggage while you’re going through security.
“Customers are liking it so far, they really enjoy this technology. They think it’s easier to leave their stuff in," said Batt.
The technology has been in use for years for checked baggage, but the machines were too big to be brought up to the public areas until now.
By the end of 2019, TSA expects to have 40 3-D scanners at airports across the country.
