Airlines security policies post 9/11
Laptop Scanning Program
One of the compulsory steps of the security pat-down is the electronic gadget check. Laptops and other electronics are kept separately in a bin for X-ray scan. TSA has urged laptop manufacturers to design bags that will produce a clear image of the laptop from inside the bag when undergoing X-ray screening. More than 40 manufacturers have come forward with prototypes for testing with TSA.
