Security specialist Smiths Detection has received an order to supply and install its HI-SCAN XCT 10080 high-speed explosives detection systems (EDS) at Ezeiza International Airport in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
They are the first EDS solutions to be installed as part of the airport’s new baggage handling system and will be implemented in partnership with Argentine security contractor Dainippon.
Smiths Detection’s HI-SCAN 10080 XCT utilizes a dual-energy advanced security x-ray and 3D volumetric computed tomography (CT) for enhanced imaging. The units are also capable of detecting other goods that are of interest to cargo shipment companies, customs, police and other authorities.
Shan Hood, president of Smiths Detection, said, “Airports around the world trust Smiths Detection to deliver integrated solutions that keep them running effectively, efficiently and assures an enhanced passenger experience. The HI-SCAN 10080 XCT’s exceptional capabilities, combined with Smiths Detection’s global service network will ensure that Ezeiza International Airport is positioned for growth.”
The HI-SCAN 10080 XCT was originally designed to support international aviation security measures for high-speed checked baggage screening. The HI-SCAN 10080 XCT has a large tunnel and high-speed conveyor, which speeds up the screening processes while increasing detection capability.
