  • Abstract:
    The testimony today discusses the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) efforts to implement and improve security in two key areas: air traffic control computer systems and airport passenger screening checkpoints. Computer systems-and the information within-are the crucial link for providing information to air traffic controllers and aircraft flight crews to ensure the safe and expeditious movement of aircraft. Screening checkpoints and the screeners who operate them provide the means to ensure that passengers and others do not bring dangerous items aboard aircraft. This testimony is based on issued reports on computer security and on work that we have under way on checkpoint screeners that we are conducting at this Subcommittee's request. This report on checkpoint screeners will be issued shortly. In summary, this work has identified security problems in both the air traffic control computer systems and in the performance of checkpoint screeners.
