Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport Selects Telos to Process Background Checks for Aviation Workers

Telos' aviation channeling service offers increased efficiency and flexibility in credentialing operations at the busiest airport in the Washington-Baltimore region.

ASHBURN, Va., Oct. 25, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE)Telos Corporation (NASDAQ: TLS), a leading provider of cyber, cloud, identity and enterprise security solutions for the world’s most security-conscious organizations, today announced that the Maryland Aviation Administration has contracted with Telos to provide the Transportation Security Administration (TSA)-approved Designated Aviation Channeling (DAC) service for processing worker background checks at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI).

Telos’ DAC service improves data integrity, increases the efficiency of credentialing operations and reduces costs. The DAC service enables submissions of workers’ biographic and biometric data to conduct background checks for individuals working in secure areas of U.S. commercial airports.

“The DAC service deployment at BWI Marshall Airport is notable for its integration with BWI’s Identity Management System, enabling efficient biographic and biometric transmissions,” said Dawn E. Lucini, vice president of aviation security, Telos. “We have streamlined the TSA-required aviation worker background check process, while upholding the high security and customer service standards at BWI.”

Telos’ aviation channeling service meets the TSA and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) requirements for the transmission and protection of biographic and biometric data. Telos applies this TSA-accredited software-as-a-service platform to enable airports, air carriers, cargo carriers, and general aviation to perform identity and biometric-based background checks that mitigate insider threats to our nation’s aviation transportation infrastructure.

“Telos is the recognized leader in assuring the identities of aviation workers with advanced biometric and enrollment solutions, evidenced by the growing roster of airports and airlines – over 100 and counting – that currently use the Telos DAC solution,” said Lucini. “We are pleased to support the Maryland Aviation Administration and its world-class airport in their efforts to provide excellence in credentialing and vetting services of their aviation workers, all while reducing costs and providing superior customer care and flexibility.”

In August 2022, Telos announced the expansion of its aviation channeling service within the U.S. commercial aviation industry to include: USA Jet Airlines, IFL Group, California Redwood Coast Humboldt County Airport (ACV), Advanced Airlines, Backcountry Aviation and ABX Air, Albany Intl.
