CT technology in aviation screening

When security counts, experience matters

The widespread adoption of CT (Computed Tomography) screening of hold baggage as well as its arrival at the passenger checkpoint have been milestones in aviation security development.

The 3D volumetric image that CT creates enables much more precise judgements on the content of a bag, improving security levels while also offering equally attractive operational benefits such as increased productivity and higher throughput, thereby lowering operating costs. Overall, CT technology helps to make improvements for operators, security and passengers.

Having developed CT technology since 1994 and having sold more than 3,000 CT scanners, we have more experience in the development, manufacture, installation and maintenance than any other manufacturer.

As we believe that when security counts, experience matters.
