 The Springfield Branson National Airport now features state-of-the-art scanning technology. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) began deploying the Advanced Imaging Technology (AIT) units to airports in 2008. The machines are designed to safely screen passengers for both metallic and non-metallic threats that can be concealed under clothing, all while preserving passenger privacy.
