Passengers on Baltimore-Washington International Airport departures have access to only the highest levels of security to ensure a safe travel by all. Throughout most of the airport, AIT devices are now used, which are highly advanced screening tools used to detect metallic and non-metallic threats, for example, weapons and explosives. AIT is the abbreviation for Advanced Imaging Technology, and requires the passenger to walk through an imaging portal. When inside, they will be asked to stand in various positions, and to stay still for a few moments while they are being scanned. The passengers will then exit on the other side. The AIT are not compulsory for passengers to use, they may also receive a pat-down and other forms of security checks.
