DFW to Update Terminal D Checked Baggage Systems
The Explosive Detection System (EDS) machines currently used by Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to screen baggage in each Checked Baggage Inspection System (CBIS) area of Terminal D, were installed in 2004 during construction of Terminal D and have reached technological obsolescence.
Through a TSA mandated program, the existing EDS machines will be replaced with new EDS machines provided by TSA. DFW will make modifications and limited improvements to the baggage handling system at each CBIS and install the new EDS machines provided by TSA. Total cost of the system upgrades is $62,635,435.00, which is to be paid by TSA.
