Smiths Detection announced that it has been awarded a contract by Northern Territory (NT) Airports to supply CT checked baggage and passenger screening systems in Darwin and Alice Springs airports. By partnering with Smiths Detection both Darwin International and Alice Springs Airport, are the first in Australia to adopt CT technology for their passenger screening needs.
NT Airports provide critical infrastructure and services to those travelling through its airports and is an important contributor to the NT economy because of its proximity to Asia’s tourism and business markets. Customer safety and security are the number one priority and NT Airports wanted a security partner who focused on both traveller safety and passenger experience.
Smiths Detection will install seven units of HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX integrated with iLane.evo. It’s an effective lane system with tray handling capabilities that deliver a steady flow of trays so travellers at NT Airports can experience a stress-free screening process. Four units of HI-SCAN 10080 XCT, for checked baggage screening, will also be installed. Each system can handle up to 1,800 bags per hour with its impressive 0.5m/sec belt speed. This offers security operators higher levels of security and operational efficiency.
“We want to keep customers safe, ease their transition through our airports, and provide peace of mind for everyone. We’re striving for excellence and we’re excited to partner with Smiths Detection who share the same vision and tenacity as us.” - Ian Kew, CEO of NT Airports
“Smiths Detection understands the diverse needs that airports face and is committed to improving passenger experience and security, using our world-leading technology and expertise in CT systems. It is a pleasure to be working with NT airports, to deliver a security screening solution which will enable seamless travel experience for passengers.” - Jordan Thrupp, Managing Director of Australia and New Zealand, Smiths Detection.
The projects at Darwin and Alice Springs airports are on schedule to be delivered by mid-2020.
