Smiths Detection unveiled the HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX on Monday at the Inter Airport Expo in Munich. The eagerly awaited checkpoint scanner utilises CT technology to provide the highest level of security while improving passenger throughput and experience, and lowering overall costs to airports.
The CT technology used in the CTiX gives airports, subject to local authority approval, the ability to eliminate the removal of electronics or liquids from carry-on luggage prior to screening at security points.
The CTiX is easily incorporated into existing checkpoint lanes, helping to reduce upgrade costs.
Integration into an advanced screening and management platform, such as Smiths Detection’s Checkpoint.Evo plus, will further streamline operations through remote screening and directed search, as well as providing access to valuable management data.
Planned enhancements for the HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX will focus on the automatic detection of prohibited items such as guns and large knives, potentially meaning operators will no longer need to review every image.
The HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX has been submitted for relevant testing for EDS CB C3 and TSA programmes. The first systems will be available in early 2018.
