Washington, DC

Thanks to Ben Carver for sharing from DHS:

“Timelapse footage of the Washington DC metro rail system (and a short segment from the AMTRAK area at Union Station). Metro footage was captured in a single day at the Woodley Park-Zoo/Adams-Morgan station and the Chinatown station. This footage is used as b-roll in the DHS video “Securing Surface Transportation”:

Surface transportation such as subway systems can be a unique security challenge due to the large crowds of travelers and the open, unstructured environment. Public safety officials (including mass transit Operators, mass transit police, state and federal law enforcement teams) need a capability to detect potential threat items on persons and in bags without negatively impacting the speed of travel. S&T is developing technology to meet this challenge with the Surface Transportation Explosive Threat Detection Program, helping provide a layered, integrated capability to detect and mitigate the explosive threat at the speed of the traveling public.”
