Security screening specialist L3 Technologies has announced that its ClearScan automated explosives detection system (EDS) for carry-on baggage has achieved the European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC-EU) C2 Standard.
The certification enables passengers to keep their electronic devices in carry-on bags as they pass through checkpoints, resulting in an expedited process without compromising security. L3’s ClearScan has one of the smallest footprints of any available computed tomography (CT) system, helping it to be seamlessly integrated into existing aviation checkpoints.
Michael T Strianese, chairman and CEO of L-3, said, “Receiving this key certification level for ClearScan is a significant milestone toward deployment at airports throughout Europe. Aviation security is a core business for L3, and we remain determined to improve and enhance the airport security experience for the traveling public.”
Al Weggeman, president of L3 Security and Detection Systems, said, “ClearScan has delivered proven operational performance with enhanced automated detection at major airport checkpoints throughout Europe, Asia and Africa. This industry-leading integrated solution has demonstrated benefits for both airport operators and passengers. We’re pleased to deliver security solutions that provide a better overall experience for airline passengers.”
