Advanced HI-SCAN 10080 XCT hold baggage scanners offer flexible, sophisticated detection capabilities
Smiths Detection has won its largest single order ever for its advanced HI-SCAN 10080 XCT hold baggage scanners, with an associated eight-year service agreement.
The contract covers 35 next-generation scanners to support the airport’s upgrade to ECAC Standard 3-compliant explosives detection systems, mandated by the European Commission to improve threat detection and lower false alarm rates.
The solution for Frankfurt will deliver increased security and operational efficiency, and can easily be upgraded to meet future requirements to identify evolving threats, such as homemade explosives. Delivery will take place on a rolling basis between 2018 and 2021.
Frankfurt is Europe’s second busiest airport in terms of cargo and fourth in terms of passenger numbers, with over 60 million in 2016, making a high-speed, high volume hold baggage system critical to screening efficiency.
The HI-SCAN 10080 XCT scanner combines high-resolution X-ray technology, medical-quality computed tomography (CT) and advanced detection algorithms to deliver exceptional levels of security. It supports a high throughput of up to 1,800 bags per hour, can accommodate items measuring up to 1,000 x 800 mm, and operates with a low false alarm rate to deliver a highly efficient screening process.
“This contract represents our largest single order to date for ECAC Standard 3-compliant hold baggage scanners,” commented Tony Tielen, VP of EMEA for Smiths Detection. “Frankfurt was one of the very first airports we supplied with security equipment over fifty years ago, and we’re delighted to have the opportunity to continue protecting Germany’s busiest airport.”
