Advanced X-ray screening equipment used to help secure NFL Super Bowl
12 Feb 2024

Smiths Detection, a global leader in threat detection and screening technology, supplied its leading high-energy X-ray screening systems to help secure the NFL Super Bowl attended by over 61,000 people on Sunday, February 11, 2024, at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Commonly used by customs and border operations to identify concealed contraband or threats, the three Smiths Detection HCVM cargo screening systems owned by U.S. Customs and Border Protection, supplied from the Port of Long Beach, California, screened all incoming goods during the week prior to the event to ensure that no threats found their way into the stadium. 

The HVCM is a high-energy X-ray system that is capable of screening through up to 12.6in (320mm) of steel to reveal the contents of shipping containers or large vehicles. The mobile unit provides extra advantage by allowing the system to be moved where it is needed most. 

Matthias Springer, Vice President of Sales at Smiths Detection Inc., said, “We were honoured to once again have had our high-energy X-ray screening equipment used as part of the NFL’s high-level security operation to protect players, performers, spectators, and staff at this year’s Super Bowl. With tens of thousands in attendance and hundreds of millions more watching on television and online, the importance of security is paramount and we’re incredibly pleased to have been part of this successful event.”

Smiths Detection to support development of new vapour screening technology for Maritime Customs Border Control
30 Jan 2024

Smiths Detection, a global leader in threat detection and screening technology, today announces that it has been selected to take part in a EU Horizon programme to develop a maritime customs border control screening system (METEOR) to deliver portable screening technology for cross border containers.

The new technology will automatically provide fast high-quality detection and identification, with a low false alarm rate, without needing to open the container.

The consortium will initially focus on the detection of narcotics, with the view that the technology can also be applied to the detection of other known threats such as explosives.

As part of its role in the METEOR consortium, Smiths Detection will provide consultation to the application and scale of the technology as a leader in the field.

Glenn Tracey, Smiths Detection Science and Technology Director, said: “Smiths Detection is delighted to support the advancement in technology readiness for a promising vapour detection technology. The consortium will help accelerate existing narcotics and explosives detection capabilities to support customs authorities in tackling trafficking.”

Today’s news follows the recent announcement by Smiths Detection of its inclusion in another EU Horizon consortium (BAG INTEL) developing new AI based algorithms for automatic detection of narcotics in passenger baggage.

3D X-ray technology to help speed passengers through security at Fukuoka International Airport
23 Jan 2024

Smiths Detection, a global leader in threat detection and security screening technologies, today announces that it will supply Fukuoka International Airport Co., Ltd with 12 HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX X-ray scanners and 12 automatic tray return systems, the iLane A20. The technology will be in use at the North and South Domestic Checkpoints.

The HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX, a computed tomography (CT) X-ray scanner produces high-resolution volumetric 3D images for quicker and deeper baggage assessment and low false-alarm rates. Implementation of the new scanner will allow passengers to leave their liquids and electronics in their hand luggage, helping to speed up security screening, without compromising on safety. The iLane A20, a next-generation fully automated tray return system, delivers high throughput and efficiency, streamlining the screening process and eliminating passenger bottlenecks. 
 
42 units of Smiths Detection’s industry-leading 3D X-ray scanners are already in use in Japan, as well as 143 iLane tray return systems. The HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX and iLane A20 are expected to be able to scan more than 250 passengers per hour, approximately 1.5 times the previous throughput of around 170 passengers per hour.

Smiths Detection’s North & South Asia Market Head, Aurelien Guilbert said: “We’re thrilled to be working Fukuoka International Airport to enhance security and improve the overall passenger experience by allowing passengers to leave large electronics and liquids in their carry-on bags. Already in use across country, the H-SCAN 6040 CTiX is the leading checkpoint CT X-ray in Japan”.

Smiths Detection’s technology will be installed by the end of March 2024. Fukuoka Airport domestic checkpoint will become the third airport in Japan to harness the power of Smiths Detection’s 3D X-ray screening technology, alongside Haneda Airport domestic checkpoint and Naha Airport domestic checkpoint.

London Gatwick's 32.9* million annual passengers to speed through security with Smiths Detection’s 3D X-ray scanners
15 Dec 2023

Smiths Detection, a global leader in threat detection and security screening technologies, today announces that following an extensive trial, it has been awarded contracts to supply London Gatwick with HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX carry-on baggage CT X-ray scanners that will be phased in on all security lanes throughout the airport. 

Major UK airports have been given a deadline of mid-2024 by the UK government to install computed tomography (CT) X-ray scanners. 

Due to the new regulations and the scanner’s computed tomography (CT) 3D X-ray technology, over 30 million passengers who use Gatwick every year will be able to leave liquids and electronics in their bags. The introduction of the scanners will also see the 100ml limit on liquids removed, allowing travellers to bring a wider range of products with them through a much quicker security screening process.

This is due to the CT scanner enabling passengers to leave liquids and laptops in their bags, 3D rotatable images helping security personnel quickly identify potential threats, and a belt speed of 0.2m/s, which helps improve the speed with which passengers pass through security. Smiths Detection also worked closely with London Gatwick to design the concept of operation for passenger security as to provide the highest level of safety, operational efficiency and the optimal customer experience. 

Additional features of the HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX include low levels of energy consumption, low noise levels and zero vibration to improve the checkpoint experience for both passengers and security operators. 

Andy Evripides, Head of Market UK and Ireland, Smiths Detection said: “We are delighted to be supplying London Gatwick with our industry-leading CT scanner. Following 18 months of on-site testing, our technology achieved the highest throughput, meaning more passengers can pass through security faster while delivering the highest level of security.”

Cyrus Dana, Head of Airport Security, London Gatwick said: "Our top priority is the safety of our passengers and the security of the airport. This cutting-edge, new generation of technology will ensure a safe and robust experience for our passengers. The new equipment is both safer and greener and we look forward to phasing it out across London Gatwick. “We continue to work to drive efficiency and resilience throughout the airport and give every passenger an enjoyable and effortless experience.”

Smiths Detection to develop narcotics detection algorithm
14 Nov 2023

Smiths Detection, a global leader in threat detection and screening technology, today announces that it has been selected for EU funding as part of a consortium to develop an intelligent customs border control screening system (BAG-INTEL) that will automatically detect narcotics in passenger baggage. The consortium is funded by Horizon Europe, the key funding programme for research and innovation of the EU. Smiths Detection’s role will be to create an effective narcotics detection algorithm.

The BAG-INTEL consortium brings together technology providers and customs agencies to solve customs and border control challenges by targeting specific bags needing manual inspection. All bags will be automatically screened for narcotics between unloading from the aircraft and baggage reclaim area. The results of the screening will be combined with data to identify which luggage should be investigated further. 

Smiths Detection’s algorithm will be developed by leveraging a combination of material discrimination, similar to that used in explosives detection, as well as shape-based, deep learning, which is used for weapons detection. Smiths Detection is an industry leader in the development and application of smart, automatic detection algorithms. Advances in AI-based algorithms have enabled real-time, automatic identification of a fast-growing list of prohibited items. By framing any suspect items, image analysts can make faster, more accurate decisions which increases detection levels while maintaining the necessary flow of passengers and goods. Initially, the algorithm will be designed for the hold baggage and air cargo screening system HI-SCAN 10080 XCT.

Smiths Detection Science and Technology Director, Glenn Tracey, commented: “Smiths Detection is committed to advancing the uptake of digital solutions for everyday detection needs and being part of this consortium is another example of this. The development of the narcotics detection algorithm aligns perfectly with work that we are already doing in this area and will be an excellent addition to the iCMORE family. Most importantly, working closely with our partners is a positive step in supporting the ongoing fight against narcotics and making the world a safer place.”

Coordinated by Legind Technologies (Denmark), key members of the BAG-INTEL consortium include research institutes, universities and other technology providers. In addition to the innovative bag tracking, they aim to deliver a digital twin for visualizing, testing, and optimising the BAG-INTEL solution, and a sustainable business model and deployment plan for its Pan-European uptake. In this context, customs agencies from Denmark, Estonia, Greece, Italy and Spain will represent the End User perspective.
