Smiths trial in China   


Smiths Detection is to trial its smart security checkpoint for the first time in China, at Chengdu Shuangliu  International Airport.

Central to the trial is the HI-SCAN 6040p-2is dual view x-ray inspection unit for carry-on luggage and the iLane.evo automated tray-handling system. The HI-SCAN 6040p-2is is certified by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC), and generates high-quality x-ray scanned images of personal belongings and cabin baggage, while the iLane.evo automatically detects and re-routes suspicious items, removing bottlenecks in passenger flow.

Dennis Zeng, general manager, Smiths Detection China, said, “We anticipate post-trial feedback and know that we can leverage our global experience to help fortify Chengdu Airport’s security solutions to a greater degree than pre-trial.”

The live trial involving real passengers will continue until March 2020.
