Singapore Changi Airport will deploy 20 units of ultra-high speed Smiths Detection HI-SCAN 10080 XCT automatic explosives detection systems (EDS) for the redevelopment of Terminal 2 Baggage Handling System.
The 20 HI-SCAN 10080 XCT units will be installed over four years in Terminal 2, starting from August 2020. Aside from the installation project, there is also a maintenance option for Smiths Detection to provide on-site service maintenance includes comprehensive hardware and software support.
This deployment of the latest hold-baggage solution expands Smiths Detection’s screening security capability to Changi Airport.
“Before the aviation sector was disrupted by Covid-19, Changi Airport is one of the busiest airports in the world requiring high volumes of baggage screening, and our next-generation technology helps support this implementation. We are confident that this partnership with Changi Airport Group will lead the way in driving higher standards for future adoption.” explained John Tan, Smiths Detection’s Managing Director, Asia.
The HI-SCAN 10080 XCT is both TSA certified and ECAC Standard 3.1 approved. It features a combined dual-energy X-ray line scanner and leverages CT technology to produce high resolution 3D images for an optimised detection performance. With a belt speed of 0.5m/s, the HI-SCAN 10080 XCT provides a throughput of up to 1800 bags/hour, making the screening process faster and more efficient. In addition, its modular build allows for flexible and easy installation, highest operational availability and ease of maintenance.
