Copenhagen Airport installs Smiths Detection body scanners

Copenhagen Airport in Denmark has installed 18 Smiths Detection advanced eqo millimeter-wave scanners to meet new EU regulatory requirements for enhanced passenger screening. It is the largest single deployment of eqo scanners in Europe.

The eqo scanners can detect threat items of any material hidden beneath clothing and will be used for additional checks at central and transit checkpoints when suspicions are raised during primary screening.

Passengers are scanned in seconds, providing an immediate result to the checkpoint officer, who can see where eqo has identified suspicious areas on the body. A localized search simplifies the security process compared with the full-body pat-down needed when traditional metal detector alarms go off.

Johnnie Müller, head of security at Copenhagen Airport, said, “Copenhagen Airport is satisfied with enhancing the security performance of our checkpoints with the introduction of the eqo security scanner. The technology raises the detection capability to comply with new EU regulations while improving the experience of our passengers. Integrating seamlessly into our existing checkpoints, the eqo security scanner is a welcome addition to the security infrastructure of the airport.”
