Xtract One Technologies’ SmartGateway patron screening solution has been comprehensively tested by the TSA for effectiveness and suitability.

According to Xtract One, SmartGateway’s TSA and APL verification signifies the system’s adherence to documented specifications.

The testing process – which encompassed a wide range of threat items and scenarios – also highlights the reliability of the product and its performance in different conditions.

Third party validation is a requirement of technology vendors for professional sports leagues.

The Xtract One SmartGateway unobtrusively scans patrons for guns, knives and other prohibited items as they pass through the system.

“We are proud to have achieved this”

“The integrity and extensiveness of this testing process and inclusion by the TSA in its approved product list highlights our continued objective to provide transparency across all areas of our business, ensuring our sales and marketing messaging aligns with our product capabilities,” said Peter Evans, CEO, Xtract One.

“We are proud to have achieved this validation of the broad detection capabilities of our solution and that customers can confidently select our solutions to deliver the expected outcomes for their organisations.”
