 Members RSVP   |  Apply to present  |  Participating companies  |  Guest Registration  | Home  |

The aviation security industry is buzzing with anticipation of a “checkpoint of the future.” This stems from inconveniences hindering the traveling public on one side, and the inadequacy of security that troubles government regulators worldwide on the other. There is growing consensus that the solution to the checkpoint problem, e.g. allowing passengers to simply walk to their gates uninterrupted by security checks, is to be arrived at via sensor fusion and intelligent networking of security sensors (threat detection technologies), most of which already exist. The Silicom Ventures' event will present a behind the scenes look into both existing and future technologies and the hurdles of their adoption.
