Smiths Detection has won a range of UK airport security contracts including the installation of advanced detection systems at a temporary terminal in Heathrow Airport set up specifically for athletes and officials attending the London Olympics.

X-ray systems, which scan hand-luggage for weapons, explosives and more, will help Heathrow handle the expected surge in passenger numbers, particularly after the games end in August. They will then be deployed elsewhere at airports run by BAA, Heathrow’s owner.

The other orders, which also comprise x-ray scanners and trace and vapour explosive detectors, came from Isle of Man authorities, and the Highlands and Islands Airports Ltd which includes Inverness, Dundee, Stornoway and Orkney.

Andrew Lee, Smiths Detection’s Managing Director UK, said, “The diversity of these orders underlines how Smiths Detection can offer advanced, cost-effective and flexible solutions to the varying security challenges faced by the biggest and smallest airports.”
