Services offered by Telos ID will provide aviation travelers with a new TSA PreCheck enrollment option
Ashburn, Va. – July 16, 2020 – Telos® Identity Management Solutions, LLC (Telos ID), a leading provider of biometric, identity management, and access solutions for the world’s most security-conscious organizations today announced that the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has awarded Telos ID a 10-year Other Transaction Authority (OTA) contract for the TSA PreCheck™ expansion program. The award was made in accordance with requirements of the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018, which directed TSA “to increase the methods and capabilities available for the public to enroll in the PreCheck Program.”
“This is a big step for the TSA PreCheck Program and for the nation,” said Kyle Scott, vice president of strategy and growth for Telos ID. “Considering the global threat environment, increasing the number of trusted travelers has a big impact on the effectiveness of securing our nation’s transportation infrastructure.”
In addition to the TSA PreCheck, Telos ID contributes to aviation security with its TSA-approved Designated Aviation Channeling (DAC) services for processing aviation worker background checks. DAC services enable submissions of workers’ biographic and biometric data to conduct background checks, including subscriptions to the FBI Rap Back Program, for individuals working in secure areas of more than 90 U.S. commercial airports and air carriers.
“We are very excited to further our relationship with TSA, and we are proud to leverage our citizen and identity trust services to increase the security of our nation’s transportation infrastructure,” said Mark Griffin, president and general manager of Telos ID.
