Smiths Detection has signed an agreement with Analogic to develop the next generation of high-speed Explosives Detection Systems for screening checked airport baggage.

 Under the agreement, both companies will utilise their complementary expertise in multi-energy x-ray technology and three-dimensional Computed Tomography (CT) to develop a detection system to be manufactured by Smiths Detection. Analogic will focus on the development of new high-precision CT components to be incorporated into the system. The development cost will be absorbed within Smiths Detection’s ongoing R&D spend over the next two to three years.

The new scanner will maximise both detection and throughput capabilities to help meet increasingly stringent international security requirements and allow easy integration into advanced baggage-handling systems.

Three-dimensional Computed Tomography (CT), originally developed to aid medical diagnosis, builds a three-dimensional, computerised image of the inside of an object from a large series of x-ray images taken around a single axis of rotation.
