DFW Airport selected as pilot participant for RapBack program

Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport has been selected by the TSA Office of Intelligence and Analysis Program Management division for a “proof of concept” pilot of the FBI RapBack service. The program will enable real time criminal history monitoring of the aviation worker population.

“I’m pleased to announce that DFW has been selected to take part in the RapBack pilot program,” said Sean Donohue, Chief Executive Officer at DFW Airport. “DFW is honored to be one of two airports in the United States selected to be part of this important program.”

RapBack is part of the FBI’s Next Generation Identification Program, introduced in September 2014.

In its selection process, TSA’s OIA Program Management Office considered factors such as risk profile, volume of biometric submissions, Boston Logan International Airport was also selected to participate in the pilot program.

The pilot is expected to begin by the end of 2015.
