The deployment includes a series of automated lanes and X-ray scanners that aim to improve the airports’ screening efficiencies and effectiveness. In addition, CT scanners will be introduced, enabling automatic detection of explosives while allowing passengers to keep liquids and electronics in their hand luggage during screening. Semi-liquid foods such as soup, jam and honey can remain in the bag as well. The checkpoint scanning systems and lanes are expected to be fully installed at Chubu Centrair by the third quarter of 2019.

“A world-class tourist destination like Japan deserves world-class airports,” said Takehara Hidekiyo, Managing Director, Smiths Detection, Japan. “Raising security standards in airports has come up on the national agenda, and Chubu Centrair has shown their full commitment towards this goal. We are glad to help them on their journey with our innovative, next-generation checkpoint solutions, and to once again demonstrate our value in this highly important market.”

The contract includes:

  • HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX: This ECAC EDS CB C3-approved solution employs breakthrough computed tomography (CT) technology to create precise 3D images of bag contents, making it possible for passengers to keep liquids and electronics in their luggage during screening. Chubu Centrair International Airport is only the second airport in the world to install this product after Jeju International airport in South Korea.
  • iLane.evo: A modular and automated tray-handling system with defined interfaces for remote-screening integration, designed to remove bottlenecks and deliver a steady flow of trays.
  • HI-SCAN 6040-2is HR: An advanced dual-view X-ray inspection system to facilitate automated screenings and enhance explosives detection.
  • HI-SCAN 7555aTiX: An automatic explosives-detection system that is able to scan items of non-standard, out-of-gauge (OOG) dimensions.

Asia remains a key priority for Group and this contract, which follows other major contract wins in Japan and further supports our growing position within the region.
