Commenting on the United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA<.>) recent decision to begin establishing stricter guidelines that will force US airports to implement a range of new security solutions in the wake of the terrorist attacks of September 11 in both New York and Washington DC, which in the short term, will force airports to have multiplied the presence of guards and discontinued curbside check-in service, and which heightens security over the long term, and obligates airports to install sophisticated new applications, from advanced baggage screening systems to biometric scanners used to identify passengers, the Frost & Sullivan company, Airport Security Technology said that the new Aviation Security Bill will drive significant growth in the security technology markets, by mandating the adoption of advanced technologies and setting new guidelines for the personnel operating them.



Officials from Frost & Sullivan Research said that biometrics and smart cards will open new opportunities in the airport security market. The firm further adds that despite the push to begin using newly engineered solutions, several hurdles could slow adoption. For example, the announcement from Frost and Sullivan continues, civil libertarians have objected to the use of biometric technologies on the grounds that they will violate an individual's civil rights. Meanwhile, the cost of purchasing new technologies and their time to market could delay implementation.
