In recent years, Smiths Detection has been pursuing digital transformation, developing solutions such as iCMORE and Checkpoint. Evoplus to bring greater screening capabilities and operational advantage to security operations.
To accelerate the development of digital solutions and reduce dependence on external developers, Smiths Detection established a global technology centre of excellence in Singapore and a technology development centre in Bangalore, India.
The Bangalore team works collaboratively with experts and product development teams at other centres of excellence in order to develop and improve Smiths Detection’s digital technology capabilities.
Smiths Detection also continues to establish partnerships with universities around the globe to research security projects.
In 2020, the division established a research relationship with Imperial College London to collaborate on a joint PhD project to develop deep learning techniques to improve automated threat detection in airport baggage scanners. The project is funded by the UK Government’s Department for Transport and the Home Office.
