Future Aviation Security Solutions (FASS)

The challenge

The United Kingdom has always been at the forefront of research and development in the field of aviation security. Aviation security is a government priority and it is one with an ever-changing threat landscape.

In response to these ever-changing threats, the Home Office launched the Future Aviation Security Solutions (FASS) in cooperation with the Department for Transport (DfT).

The aim of FASS is to deliver new and innovative solutions to prevent weapons and firearms being carried onto planes by passengers. The safety and security of the travelling public will always be the government’s top aviation security priority.


Solutions implemented

The FASS programme will invest £25.5m over the next 5 years to promote innovation in science and technology.

The programme aims to deliver a step-change in aviation security and to overcome historic barriers that have held back innovation.

Technology is moving at pace and the programme aims to create an environment that can encourage innovation. As technology improves and is implemented, the aviation experience will become quicker, easier and above all safer for air passengers and the travelling public.

Results and outcomes

The main objective for the JSaRC team was to act as an enabler, working with other industry supporters and stakeholders, to deliver innovative solutions.

JSaRC’s role was to run a series of workshops and events, and to organise and conduct research, testing and trials of new solutions, as well as to support the communication and collaboration across the sector.
