CT is a complete game-changer for checkpoint security as, using the company’s proprietary technology, the HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX can allow electronic devices to stay in bags, addressing the three critical issues for airport operators: security, efficiency and passenger experience.

Delivering improved productivity, higher throughput and lower costs, this impressive scanner eliminates the need to remove electronic devices from hand luggage (subject to approval from the appropriate local authorities). This reduces the number of trays per person and makes the whole process simpler and shorter – a move sure to please the travelling public.  Baggage contents are examined from every angle and 3D images are generated with very precise data so more accurate judgements can be made on substances within the bag.

“The future really is here for checkpoint security,” observed Matt Clark, VP Technology & Product Development. “Integrating the HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX into a smart checkpoint with the latest lane design and software will revolutionise the screening process and passenger experience. And we can also look beyond the C3 hurdle as CT is also the only technology likely to meet a potential, higher C4 standard. Before long, new algorithms may well be used to identify a range of additional prohibited items and materials.”

To minimise upgrade costs, the HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX can easily be incorporated into existing checkpoint lanes. The addition of an advanced screening and management platform, such as Smiths Detection’s Checkpoint.Evoplus, will streamline operations even further by providing remote screening and directed search; as well as providing access to valuable management data.
