From the Purpose and Summary: "H.R. 6827, the 'Securing the Checkpoint Property Screening System (S-CPSS) Act of 2022,' seeks to accelerate the Transportation Security Administration's (TSA) procurement and deployment of computed tomography (CT) equipment at airport checkpoints by authorizing $1.6 billion to be appropriated for the Checkpoint Property Screening System (CPSS) program through fiscal year (FY) 2026. The procurement and deployment of CT equipment at the scale authorized by the bill will enhance the detection capability of carry-on baggage screening at TSA security checkpoints. An important feature of this measure is the $82.1 million authorized for participation in the CPSS program by small businesses that have displayed an ability to develop or produce advanced checkpoint property screening technology. This provision is in furtherance of TSA's January 2020 strategy to diversify the security technology marketplace, which included 12 initiatives to increase small business participation, that was required under the 'TSA Modernization Act' (Pub. L. [Public Law] 115-254)."
