TSA aviation-security deal goes to Raytheon

A $3.7 million Transportation Security Administration contract was awarded to Raytheon Technical Services Company LLC, which will deliver a system that communicates data and images to airports across the country.

The company will manage the first phase of TSA's Security Technology Integrated Program initiative. The initial phase calls for integrating and testing commercial and custom software used to exchange data with threat image projection and ready X-ray systems.

When completed, the aviation security system will send data and images to about 1,200 TRX systems fielded at 80 airports. Raytheon will handle training and support.
