Flying this fall break through San Jose Norman Y. Mineta International Airport?

 

Homeland security picked San Jose International Airport to test new airport security technology. Homeland security plans to test video cameras, radar, microwaves infrared, laser, ground, and fence sensors. As well as under-vehicle screening. The cost of this will be $10 million, but all of this equipment will be covered by congress.https://www.mercurynews.com/2018/09/18/san-jose-airport-one-of-two-to-test-new-security-technology/

 

The reason they want to test this technology is because on April of 2015, homesick Somalian refugee Yahya Abdi, 15, who was living in Santa Clara with his father, slipped through the fencing surrounding the San Jose International Airport and nestled into the wheel of a flight bound to Hawaii. The boy had no malicious intent, he wanted to return back to Africa and reconnect with his mother.https://www.mercurynews.com/2018/09/18/san-jose-airport-one-of-two-to-test-new-security-technology/

Also if you don’t want the new “real ID” you can get one that says federal limits.  Which does not let you go to federal government or military bases and would not not board a flight. 

There will be new ID, a coordinated effort by the states and the federal government to inhibit terrorists’ ability to evade detection by using fraudulently-obtained driver’s licenses and identification cards. It was designed to ensure that people who board a flight or enter a federal building are who they say they are.

 

You still can get the other ID, but federal limits will be applied so that means you have to fly in the United States with with a passport to show that proof that you are flying and no one else.
