Smiths Detection to Upgrade Security at Nine Airports in India

Smiths Detection has won an order from the Airports Authority of India (AAI) for multiple CTX 9800 DSi systems at a combined value of over USD50 million.

Smiths Detection will install and integrate high-speed explosives detection systems (EDS) for hold-baggage screening at eleven sites across nine airports in India, including Chennai International Airport and Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport in Kolkata.

“The Indian market is forecast to be the third-largest aviation market in the world by 2026, so security is a mission-critical factor in enabling India’s airports to be future-ready,” said Jerome de Chassey, General Manager of Smiths Detection in India. “Smiths Detection is honoured to partner with AAI – supporting airports to stay ahead of the evolving threat landscape with a technological solution that is fully compliant with regulatory requirements.”

AAI manages a total of 125 airports in India and is responsible for creating, upgrading, maintaining and managing civil aviation infrastructure both on the ground and in the air.

 The organisation is also responsible for building new terminals for the many new small airports under development by the Government of India.

 Working in partnership with Smiths Detection, AAI will implement ECAC Standard 3 screening of hold baggage at Level 1 for inline systems across the country. This complies with regulations set by the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS), the regulatory authority for civil aviation security in India.

Powered by 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 baggage-handling system.

 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.
