Smiths Detection wins Narita International Airport order for 20 CTX 9800s

Posted 4 December 2017 · Add Comment

Smiths Detection has announced that Narita International Airport Corporation in Japan has ordered 20 high-speed CTX 9800 DSi explosives detection systems (EDS) for hold-baggage screening.


 
Narita is the main international airport in Japan, handling around 50 percent of the country's international passenger traffic and 60 percent of its international air-cargo traffic, and has collaborated with Smiths Detection to enhance hold-baggage screening capabilities for nearly 10 years.

Scheduled for deployment between 2019 and 2022, the new 20 CTX 9800 units will replace more than 27 legacy CTX systems and will allow Narita to screen hold baggage faster, more efficiently and with a reduced footprint. Helping to ensure maximum performance and system uptime, Smiths Detection’s onsite network of expert engineers and technicians will facilitate preventative and rapid-response maintenance services for a minimum of ten years.
 
This is the first order for Smiths Detection’s new CORAL Advanced Predictive Analytics Suite. Leveraging operational data to predict and schedule maintenance on hold baggage or checkpoint screening networks, CORAL is a powerful new tool to help airports minimize downtime while maximizing the efficiency of their service programme. 
 
“Smiths Detection is delighted that Narita continues to recognize the superior imaging, detection and throughput capability of our EDS systems,” said Nathan Manzi, VP APAC at Smiths Detection. “Combined with an unmatched global service footprint that now includes advanced predictive analytics capabilities, Smiths Detection can help any size of airport deploy advanced hold-baggage screening capabilities to plan for evolving threats and growth.”
