Airline passengers who are having their documents examined at an airport’s security checkpoint often try to choose the particular conveyor belt onto which they will place their clothes, coins and laptops.

TSA has just issued a Request for Information [2] (RFI) to prospective vendors who could develop and supply such randomizers, which TSA expects to deploy at CAT X through CAT IV airports throughout the United States.
