ECAC EDS Standard 3 is a regulatory framework passed by the European Commission to improve aviation security. As new regulations demand that airports step up their security to detect a higher level of threats while lowering operational false alarm rates (FAR), hold baggage screening (HBS) entered a transformative phase with airports everywhere upgrading to ECAC EDS Standard 3 approved explosive detection systems (EDS).
ECAC EDS Standard 3 is the answer to greater operational efficiency, improved resource optimization, and more accurate security decisions.
Understanding that every airport and terminal has its own unique set of needs and constraints, our HBS solutions, offer the flexibility and scalability to meet them all. Certified with the industry’s highest ECAC and TSA standards, while accompanied by specialized service teams to provide proactive support, we never leave you alone to transition.
Reduced Operational FAR
Standard 3 delivers a reduced operational false alarm rate (FAR) of up to 30% as compared to Standard 2.
Superior Image Quality
Ensuring faster and more accurate alarm resolution by operators, minimising the need for re-checks.
Enhanced Explosive Detection
Significantly improved detection capabilities for explosives exceeding the highest international standards.
Higher Throughput Rate
Faster belt speed with a higher throughput of up to 1,800 bags per hour for a more efficient turnaround time.
Reduced operator contact and hence the risk of virus transmission, while maximising resource allocation.
Object Recognition Capabilities
Complementary automatic detection of dangerous goods, prohibited items and substances.
