Smiths Detection set to unveil latest checkpoint solutions and baggage-screening systems at Passenger Terminal Expo 2017

Smiths Detection has announced that it will be demonstrating the opportunities and functionalities of a checkpoint and hold-baggage screening via multimedia and simulations at this year’s Passenger Terminal Expo in Amsterdam, Netherlands, from March 14-16.

Keeping air travelers safe relies on baggage-screening systems that deliver high-accuracy, regulation-compliant detection. With technology evolving at a rapid pace and passenger numbers growing, efficiency is also an essential factor for operators, together with a positive passenger experience.

As Cameron Mann (left), Smiths Detection’s global market director for aviation explained, integrated checkpoint solutions can help airports rise to these challenges. “Evolving threats, changing regulations and growth that will double passenger numbers in 15 years: these are all reasons why we’ve seen increased focus on airport security in operations, passenger experience and threat confrontation. Risk-based screening relies on data sharing across government and commercial stakeholders, and is probably not currently viable. Airports are therefore looking to deploy integrated checkpoints and advanced hold-baggage screening (HBS) technologies. This requires a partner with the experience to deliver and support integrated capabilities.

“We provide complete solutions and support, from planning and design, to commissioning, integration and service, throughout the equipment’s life. Focusing on total security and its effect on broader operations, we tailor services to meet specific business and regulatory requirements.

“Our screening and management platform, called Checkpoint.Evoplus, transforms components into a single intelligent solution. Connected checkpoints streamline the screening process, optimizing throughput, resources and security. KPIs can be monitored and information shared via a central, mobile-accessible dashboard. Checkpoint.Evoplus provides real-time data to support instant decisions on resource allocation, and historical data for resource planning, administration and identifying bottlenecks.”
