BayFirst Wins TSA Flight Data Initiative Program Management Contract
BayFirst Solutions has been awarded a new contract to provide program management support to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) in the Office of Security Technology (OST) for their Flight Data Initiative (FDI) program contracted with DRS. The FDI program includes the following equipment/capabilities for a prototype demonstration on a commercial aircraft:

- Airborne Server — reliable and rugged next generation data storage and manipulation for recorder
- Event Driven Air/Ground Data Link — high speed data exchange within the aircraft and between air and ground participants using IP network-based architecture
- Enhanced Data Collection — collection of pre- and in-flight cockpit and cabin video and/or audio information
BayFirst will be providing TSA OST with all necessary program management support on the DRS technical contract with the assistance of Deloitte as a subcontractor. BayFirst’s past work with TSA allows our team to bring an experienced and knowledgeable management perspective to this project.
