THE XRAY SCREENER STORY
XRAY Screener is based on Kedlin Company’s highly successful app, Airport Scanner, that reached No 1 in Apple’s App Store in 2012.
Airport Scanner has been downloaded by more than 20 million people worldwide. Engagement with the app has, to date, produced more than 3 billion visual search trials, creating the largest visual search research dataset ever created.
In 2012, Ben Sharpe of Kedlin and cognitive psychologist Dr. Stephen Mitroff began a unique collaboration to produce state-of-the-art research in the fields of visual search and aviation security, which resulted in several published papers in peer-reviewed academic journals and ground-breaking technology in the form of XRAY Screener.
As a result, under a contract from the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) the Airport Scanner app was modified to produce XRAY Screener to support the visual search profession.
In 2015, the TSA funded Kedlin and Dr. Mitroff to conduct further studies and make XRAY Screener directly applicable to airport security screening.
XRAY Screener has been proven to significantly predict on-job abilities of TSA officers—the rapid XRAY Screener assessment predicts TSA officers’ efficiency and effectiveness.
