Smiths Detection’s products will support the 'JAL SMART SECURITY' addressed by Japan Airlines at Tokyo International Airport Domestic Terminal security checkpoints and utilise cutting-edge technology to realize more advanced security inspections. It will be introduced from April 2022 and is scheduled to be completed in August 2022.

Smiths Detection’s HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX is a computed tomography (CT) X-ray scanner producing high-resolution volumetric 3D images for quicker baggage assessment and low false-alarm rates. It allows electronics and liquids to remain in bags, speeding up passenger screening and reducing touchpoints.

The next generation fully automated tray return system, the iLane, delivers high throughput and efficiency, streamlining the screening process and eliminating passenger bottlenecks.

The UV-C, an ultraviolet light tray disinfection kit, which is seamlessly integrated into the iLane tray return system, eliminates up to 99.9% of microorganisms, including coronaviruses, helping to protect passengers and staff from tactile transmission of contagious diseases.   
MAEDA Atsushi, Airport Division Executive Officer Japan Airlines Co.,Ltd. said: “At Tokyo International Airport, we have redesigned the system from check-in to the boarding gate, and have strengthened human services, embracing the digitalization of our system. As part of this initiative, by introducing Smiths Detection’s security inspection system 'JAL SMART SECURITY', it enables security checkpoint technology to further strengthen security inspections and shorten the inspection time, realizing safer, more secure and stress-free airport services.”
In November 2021, Smiths Detection’s HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX was certified by the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) under the Accessible Property Screening System (APSS) program to detection standard 6.2, Level 1, permitting the scanner to operate at an enhanced level with lower false alarm rates.
