The German Ministry of the Interior (MOI) has ordered more than 100 security scanners from L-3 Security and Detection Systems (L-3 SDS) to be deployed at various airports across Germany.

The ProVision ATD and ProVision 2 security scanners will be used by security personnel at primary screening points and will provide an unobtrusive alternative to the traditional ‘pat-down’. The image-free ProVision 2 system ensures passenger privacy with software that automatically detects both metallic and non-metallic threats. The system then indicates the location of the detected objects on a generic mannequin. The ProVision 2 uses safe millimeter wave (MMW) technology and requires a simple single pose during a 1.5-second scan.

Tom Ripp, president of L-3 Security and Detection Systems, said, “We’re very pleased that the German MOI has adopted L-3’s ProVision platform as part of its strategy of enhancing both checkpoint security and the experience of airline passengers. Our next-generation ProVision 2 is built on a flexible software platform that meets both ECAC CEP Standard 1 and Standard 2 requirements, allowing European airports to choose the configuration that best fits their security and operational needs.”

L-3 Security and Detection Systems will be on stand 2090 at this year’s Passenger Terminal Expo in Paris, France. To register please click here.
