Vanderlande’s Scannojet solution and Vanderlande Advanced Passenger Checkpoints’s (APC) eVelocity solution have both successfully passed the Transportation Security Administrations’ (TSA) Automated Screening Lane (ASL) assessment, which identifies and supports initiatives to improve security and address operational challenges at US airports.
The solutions are integrated with Smiths Detection’s aTiX x-ray. The approval comes shortly after Vanderlande received TSA approval of its ASL system, which is integrated with the Rapiscan 620DV. Vanderlande’s ASL is the first solution to be approved for use on both of TSA’s primary x-ray systems.
Andrew Manship, Vanderlande board member and executive vice president of airports, said, “We’re excited to have received a second TSA approval for our ASL solution. We look forward to providing multiple ASL options to US airports and airline carriers when upgrading their security checkpoints.
“We have every confidence in our Scannojet system, and due to its modular design and configuration, our joint solution delivers proven increases in passenger throughput, enhancements to security, and reductions in operational costs at checkpoints. It will also significantly improve the experience for passengers.”
Vanderlande APC’s president, Tim Mathews, added, “Our eVelocity solution is a key component of the ASL. It contributes to achieving the highest performance results in terms of checkpoint efficiency and offers multiple security benefits to airports.
“In addition, eVelocity is an adaptable solution that gives airports, airlines and regulators the flexibility to integrate market-leading checkpoint technologies. It is also another example of how we support our aviation security partners. Most importantly, we can now provide TSA with a proven remote screening solution and a common user interface that will reduce training costs and improve operator efficiency.”
