Passengers at Grand Forks International Airport soon will spend less time in baggage screening lines, according to the Airport Authority.

The Reveal CT-80, an explosives detection system for screening checked bags, is in place at GFK.

"The CT-80 represents a quantum leap forward in screening equipment technology at the Grand Forks International Airport," said Airport Authority Executive Director Steve Johnson. "It will make the luggage checking process quicker and more convenient for our customers. We are pleased to partner with the TSA in implementing this significant improvement."

Reveal CT-80s are smaller in size and are less than half the price of other EDS machines in use at 67 commercial airports. The Transportation Security Administration said crews are being trained, and the machine should be in operation after Memorial Day.

The Reveal technology was designed specifically for use at small to medium-sized airports. Minot's International Airport also has received a Reveal machine.
