Smiths Detection, part of global technology business Smiths Group, has won a contract to supply Heathrow Airport with 17 HI-SCAN 10080 XCT scanners, a revolutionary type of X-ray inspection system that checks hold baggage for explosives.
The high-speed scanners, which offer X-ray technology and high-resolution 3D computer tomography, will be used in this instance to inspect outsize baggage before loading into the aircraft hold. Delivery will begin during the summer of 2015.
Richard Ingram, President of Smiths Detection, said: “HI-SCAN 10080 XCT is an ideal, cost-effective way to enhance security for all hold baggage and we are delighted that one of the world’s major airports agrees. These systems are now operating successfully in airports in South America and continental Europe.”
The HI-SCAN 10080 XCT’s large tunnel opening facilitates rapid, easy and efficient inspection of all baggage, including oversized objects. Manual checking or the use of other equipment is minimised and the scanner has been specifically developed for integration into existing baggage handling systems.
