Smiths Detection has launched its new security software solution called Checkpoint.Evo that enhances the inspection and integration capabilities of airport security checkpoints.
Checkpoint.Evo connects individual sensors to a fully networked checkpoint to provide real-time data collection. Its centralized remote screening helps speed up inspection of hand luggage as the images from the x-ray scanners can be monitored away from the noise and distractions of the checkpoint. Advanced recheck functions electronically mark suspicious areas in bags to enable a more focused search for illegal items by on-the-spot operators, resulting in faster throughput and reduced queuing times.
Checkpoint.Evo’s data management capabilities offer real-time and historical data for analysis, which allows airport operators to share information and monitor the entire screening operation via remote portable devices, such as tablet PCs.
Barrie Foley, vice president EMEA of Smiths Detection, said, “Ever-rising passenger numbers and evolving security regulations mean airports face unprecedented challenges. Checkpoint.Evo meets both the current and future requirements of customers. We are confident that this new solution will raise aviation security to unparalleled levels of performance and quality while maintaining the highest security standards.”
