... the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) is now conducting a...pilot test of the [SmartCheck Personnel Screening System, manufactured by American Science and Engineering, Inc. (AS&E)] at Sky Harbor International Airport (or "SHIA"--now that's an ironic acronym, huh? Interesting coincidence.) in Phoenix, Arizona to see just how good the system is, and just how well travellers/airline passengers will tolerate it. Smartcheck will be utilized as an optional secondary screening method. A "screenee" will be be able to choose between SmartCheck and a pat-down.
