Brochure:  TSA ‘Detention Pods’ Capable of “Threat Detection and Containment”

Eagle Security Group, Incorporated (ESG), is the company that sold the TSA ‘detention pods’ to the Syracuse Hancock International Airport in 2013 and to the Atlantic City Airport in New Jersey in 2009.  In the Eagle Security brochure, the company refers to the devices as “Exit Lane Breach Control Systems.”  The brochure goes on to say that the devices “were designed to function as unmanned stand-alone systems that successfully prevent the passing of non-authorized persons or dangerous/prohibited items into the secure area of a terminal from the non-secured area, at all times.”  While there is no mention of what threat detection technology is being used within the devices, it’s possible that a traditional x-ray system or millimeter wave technology similar to the usual security checkpoint body scanners is in use to scan for threats.

The brochure also mentions options such as HD surveillance cameras for the internal containment area as well as integrated biometrics.  The website explains: “the identity of the user is guaranteed via fingerprint, iris or facial recognition scans before they are allowed to complete their passage from non-secure to secure areas.”  While it’s not likely that biometrics will be used for passengers exiting a terminal, the use of the fingerprint to pass through an entrance scanner may be something we see in the future.  The TSA Precheck system allows flyers to undergo a background check with fingerprints in order to bypass some of the usual security measures.

These devices, while not inherently bad, are one more piece of the puzzle in the TSA’s aggressive efforts to place passengers under constant surveillance despite their poor record of actually providing thorough security.  In 2006, NBC reported that screeners failed government bomb tests at 21 airports.  In 2010, ABC reported that the TSA, again, had several airports that failed all government screening tests.  All of this continues while Americans only have two choices when passing through TSA security checkpoints:  hold your hands up in the traditional criminal arrest stance as you pass through the DNA-unzipping body scanners, or opt-in for an agent wearing blue nitrile gloves to frisk you and fondle your genitalia.  Is this the land of the free?

    They just want to make money!!! Just innocents who want to make money? Come on.

    These people don’t respect the privacy of others. They assume we don’t have natural or rights of privacy and that we are more than likely to be criminals. And, who is behind this? TSA. Homeland Security. And, who are the people behind this. Where is their bio? What is their history?

    To be detained from leaving an airport without cause and then “scanned” for personal possessions is a grave insult and an assault and battery by airports which are controlled by the feds.

    Innocent people just trying to make money– as you say— is suspect. What part of the police state isn’t ok for you.

    It’s highly unlikely that this company has any hidden agenda or motives to further the police state. The point being, disapproval of the devices needs to be focused toward the airport management and the TSA. These are the decision makers and the organizations responsible for instituting technology that conditions Americans for 24/7 surveillance. If the company finds out they can sell these portals to airports for $200k or $400k each, or whatever the actual number is, why wouldn’t they do so? I’m not going to harass them when they most likely haven’t even thought through the negatives that folks are concerned about. These guys most likely believe they are providing a piece of equipment that saves airports money. Now today, I’m sure they have a new perspective with all of the attention on their product. That said, are there companies that are in bed with the establishment to advance select agendas? Yes. Is this one of those companies? I don’t think so, but you can of course retain your own opinion.
