Smiths Detection Inc. (SDI) has announced it has successfully manufactured and shipped the 200th Computed Tomography (CT) 3-D Scanner from its Americas Headquarters located in Harford County, MD. The CT scanner marks a major milestone in advancing Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) initiatives and is the result of SDI’s ongoing manufacturing during the COVID 19 crisis as part of the Defense Industrial Base essential critical infrastructure workforce.
In March 2019, SDI received an award from TSA to supply 300 Checkpoint CT HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX systems to airports across the US. Upgrading US checkpoints with CT technology eliminates the need for passengers to remove laptops and liquids from their carry-on bags and improves airport security, both critical components in helping passengers regain confidence in air travel.
Shan Hood, President of Smiths Detection Inc., said, “I am very proud to reach the 200th HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX deployment milestone. The deployment of this technology has revolutionized checkpoint security so US airports can be better equipped to face ever evolving threats. During these challenging times, we have been able to adapt our manufacturing processes in order to keep our manufacturing and delivery commitment.”
The CTiX produces high quality 3-D images, helping expedite operators scan evaluation times and move passengers through checkpoints quicker. It is a key component of Smiths Detection’s advanced integrated and risk-based screening solutions, which includes the iLane, a sophisticated checkpoint lane that automatically separates suspicious belongings and Checkpoint.Evo Plus, a digital platform enabling remote screening and business management tools.
