SYD CT screen­ing

Travel Daily - - News -

SYD­NEY Air­port has con­firmed it is work­ing with Smiths De­tec­tion on a live trial of Com­puted To­mog­ra­phy (CT) scan­ning of air­line hold bag­gage.

The project in­volves Smith’s HI-SCAN 10080XCT sys­tem, and fol­lows a suc­cess­ful pi­lot of CTbased equip­ment for carry-on bag screen­ing at the air­port.

The CT tech­nol­ogy pro­duces high res­o­lu­tion 3D im­ages, and al­lows pas­sen­gers to leave elec­tronic de­vices and liq­uids in bags to sim­plify se­cu­rity checks.

Smiths De­tec­tion Aus­tralia/NZ MD, Jor­dan Thrupp, said “we are con­fi­dent that our tech­nol­ogy will pro­vide a higher level of de­tec­tion ca­pa­bil­ity, speed up bag pro­cess­ing and help im­prove the air­port’s op­er­a­tional ef­fi­ciency, fu­ture proof­ing se­cu­rity op­er­a­tions for Aus­tralia’s ma­jor avi­a­tion hub”.
