Narita International Airport Corporation in
Japan has ordered 20 high-speed CTX 9800 DSi explosives detection
systems (EDS) for hold-baggage screening.
Narita is the main international airport in
Japan, handling around 50% of the country's international
passenger traffic and 60% of its international air-cargo traffic.
The airport has collaborated with Smiths Detection to enhance
hold-baggage screening capabilities for nearly ten years.
Scheduled for deployment between 2019 and
2022, the new 20 CTX 9800 units will replace more than 27 legacy
CTX systems and will allow Narita to screen hold baggage faster,
more efficiently and with a reduced footprint.
This is the first order for Smiths Detection’s
new CORAL Advanced Predictive Analytics Suite. Leveraging
operational data to predict and schedule maintenance on hold
baggage or checkpoint screening networks, CORAL is a powerful new
tool to help airports minimize downtime while maximizing the
efficiency of their service programme.
“Smiths Detection is delighted that Narita
continues to recognize the superior imaging, detection and
throughput capability of our EDS systems,” said Nathan Manzi, VP
APAC at Smiths Detection. “Combined with an unmatched global
service footprint that now includes advanced predictive analytics
capabilities, Smiths Detection can help any size of airport deploy
advanced hold-baggage screening capabilities to plan for evolving
threats and growth.”
The scalability of Smiths Detection’s EDS
systems means that threats, substances and cyber-security
enhancements can be added over time via seamless software upgrades
– reducing the need to replace the installed hardware.
leading-edge computed tomography (CT) technology, CTX 9800 can be
configured to deliver throughput of up to 1,800 bags per hour and
can be tailored to meet the specific needs of any legacy or new
Approved by the European Civil Aviation
Conference as meeting Standard 3 requirements, CTX 9800 is also
certified by the U.S. Transportation Security Administration and
the Civil Aviation Administration of China.
