The Fourth International Aviation
Security Technology Symposium

Omni Shoreham Hotel - Washington, DC
November 27 - December 1, 2006

Better Science Leading to Better Applications
Gain a thorough understanding of the technologies behind aviation security systems being developed and deployed today.  Understand the challenges and solutions to the efficient operational deployment of new technologies from successful users.  Hear top experts from research, government and industry present their work in the areas of: 

  • Technology & Development - including bulk & trace detection, laboratory & operational testing, screening of people, air cargo security, emerging or enabling technologies and how they fit into the Next Generation Air Transport System
  • Operational & Performance Optimization - including international deployment perspectives, airport deployment challenges, human factors, profiling, checkpoint modeling & optimization, baggage screening modeling & optimization, operational testing tools, and technology connectivity
  • Supporting Technologies - including maintenance, configuration control & validation, airport physical security, and aircraft survivability
Why is this Symposium different?
The Fourth International Aviation Security Technology Symposium is the only symposium sponsored by the two U.S. government agencies responsible for aviation security.  This event occurs only every five years, and is dedicated solely to aviation security technology. 

Who should attend?
Leaders in the aviation security industry, airports, airlines, government, academia, and technology development laboratories are encouraged to participate in this important event. 

Is there an formal education program? 
There is an official training track to the Symposium.  Training on technical subjects relating to transportation security will be offered as part of the Symposium agenda.  The training aspect is optional, but will be administered in accordance with federal training guidelines. 

Government employees are encouraged to take advantage of the education program offered through the Symposium.  College and university students, particularly those attending minority-serving institutions, are encouraged to attend and may receive limited financial support. 

Is there a technology exhibition? 
The technology exhibition is offered in conjunction with the Symposium and will feature security devices and systems now deployed, available, or under development. 

Developers and manufacturers of security devices and systems should plan to participate in the Symposium's exhibition. 

Who sponsors the Symposium? 
The 2006 event will be sponsored by a partnership between the Transportation Security Laboratory, William J. Hughes Technical Center and the U.S. Transportation Security Administration.   Previous symposia were sponsored by the Federal Aviation Administration, William J. Hughes Technical Center. 

National Safe Skies Alliance has been designated as the managing director of the 2006 Symposium.  Safe Skies also managed the 2001 Symposium in Atlantic City, N.J.
