L-3 Security & Detection Systems (L-3 SDS) has launched its ClearScan explosives detection system (EDS) for screening cabin bags that is designed to meet emerging regulatory and operational requirements at airports worldwide and to accommodate high-security checkpoint throughput and passenger demand for a streamlined screening experience.
Utilizing computed tomography (CT) and an advanced explosives detection algorithm, the compact system allows travelers to leave liquids and electronics in their bags as they go through security.
Featuring a scanning capacity of over 500 bags per hour and a low a false alarm rate, the system can improve airport checkpoint throughput and efficiency.
L-3 SDS is also introducing IntelliCore, a powerful checkpoint operations software solution that delivers enhanced checkpoint security capabilities, including remote screening, real-time operational monitoring and reporting, image archive retrieval, and directed bag search, while facilitating risk-based security operations. Both ClearScan and IntelliCore are designed to integrate with automated tray return systems.
“Enhancing security while facilitating passenger throughput, coupled with the need to help our customers control their operating costs, is a huge challenge,” said Tom Ripp, president of L-3 SDS.
“Our new checkpoint solution is designed to meet these needs. Together with L-3’s ProVision security scanner, ClearScan and IntelliCore bring comprehensive technologies to the checkpoint that improve threat detection and increase passenger convenience and operating efficiency.”
