MetLife Stadium To Pilot New Automated Security System For Jets, Giants Games
The Giants and Jets at MetLife Stadium "will be testing a new, automated security screening system for preseason games and other events in August and September that its developers say is faster and less intrusive than being searched by security personnel," according to the AP. The system was "recently demonstrated" at Liberty State Park and at the World Cup preliminary draw event in Rio de Janerio, and is "being piloted" at MetLife Stadium. Developed by Qylur Security Systems, the kiosk is "completely automated and self-service, handling five times the crowd flow compared to current checkpoint methods that are manned by security personnel using wands and pat-downs." When using the system, fans "walk through what looks like a plexiglass doorway to be screened" (AP, 8/16).
