The Transportation Security Administration has $15,000 to give out for ideas to speed up security.
The TSA will award one prize of at least $5,000 and others of at least $2,500 for the top ideas. Plus, the winner gets the satisfaction of knowing they’ve made the airline experience for those of the masses a little less of a headache. The TSA is looking for “a scientific and simulation modeling approach to meet queue design and configuration needs of the dynamic security screening environment,” but it may not be as simple as you think. Contest participants must consider a variety of factors such as peak hours, flight schedules and TSA staffing schedules.
What percentage of entries do you think will just say “privatize it”?
What do you think some failed ideas will be? I vote for double-decker scanning belts.
