Toulouse-Blagnac Airport adopts Smiths Detection checkpoint solution

LinkedIn +

Toulouse-Blagnac Airport in France is set to install Smith Detection’s Checkpoint.Evo security solution to enhance the inspection capabilities of its passenger screening equipment.

The solution works by connecting individual sensors to a fully networked checkpoint system to provide real-time data collection, distribution and management, improving both the inspection process and operational efficiency.

The centralized remote screening helps speed up the inspection of hand luggage as images and alarms from x-ray scanners can be centrally monitored away from the noise and distractions of the checkpoint. In addition, advanced recheck functions electronically mark suspicious areas in bags to enable a more focused search for illegal items by on-the-spot operators.

Kevin Riordan, capability manager of Smiths Detection, said, “Checkpoint.Evo will significantly improve Toulouse-Blagnac Airport’s operational efficiency and checkpoint effectiveness, enhancing the overall passenger experience as a result. We look forward to working closely with them to ensure that the operational benefits of this new integrated system are maximized.”
