IMPLEMENTATION
The checked baggage inspection system took about five years from planning to design to installation, says Micheal Robert, security supervisor and FAA liaison for SFO. The system cost approximately $10 million, $4.4 million of which was covered by federal AIP funding.
Robert reports that system testing is now complete, having run from November 2000 to May 2001. CBIS is now fully operational and continues to undergo minor component refinements.
