Australian Airport Awards Smiths Detection Contract for Checkpoint CT Equipment
Smiths Detection says that it has been awarded a contract by Gold Coast Airport in Sydney to provide up to 12 HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX screening systems over the next three years for checkpoint screening of carry-on bags. The award follows a six-week trial of the checkpoint computed tomography (CT)-based screening systems earlier this year. The new systems, which are also being acquired by the U.S. Transportation Security Administration, will help the airport been increasing passenger volumes and be compliant with regulations requiring CT systems. The initial deployment of four systems will be installed in April 2020. In addition to the 6040 CTiX, the airport is also acquiring iLane.evo, which is an automated screening lane that features automated tray return and modular divestment stations for multiple passengers to set down their belongings for screening, and Checkpoint.EVOplus, a management platform that integrates the individual components of the screening lane and enables remote screening. “Because this technology allows bags to be screened without personal belongings like laptops, gels and liquids having to be removed, it results in significant reduction in wait times at the passenger security checks,” says Brett Curtis, general manager Operations and Service Delivery at Gulf Coast Airport. “The trial was successful and we found the scanner worked well from security, operational efficiency and passenger experience perspectives.”
