Acceptance Testing for Explosives Detection Systems

Over the years Battelle has consistently worked with TSA to develop testing protocols and procedures and test articles, and to conduct acceptance testing on TSA’s behalf.


what’s inside

Factory Acceptance Testing

Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) is used to confirm that each unit meets specifications before being shipped from the manufacturer’s site.

Integrated Site Acceptance Testing

Ingtegrated Site Acceptance Testing (iSAT) is separate testing conducted to ensure that EDS equipment integrated into a baggage handling system (BHS) works properly with the BHS.

Site Acceptance Testing

Site Acceptance Testing (SAT) is like FAT and ensures that, once delivered and installed/integrated, the EDS equipment is still performing according to specifications.
