LAX and STL to Test Smiths Detectionís HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX

Smiths Detectionís HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX has been approved for live baggage screening tests at two U.S. airports: Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL).

 The tests are part of a larger TSA initiative to install Computed Tomography (CT) scanners in checkpoints at select U.S. airports.

The HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX has been developed to enhance airport checkpoint screening measures and processes. It integrates into current security lanes and generates 3D images which, combined with the capability of automatic explosive detection, should eliminate the need to remove electronic devices and liquids from carry-on baggage in the future.

Cameron Ritchie, Vice President, Technology & Product Development at Smiths Detection Inc., said, ďSmiths Detection is among the first companies to test CT-based checkpoint scanners in U.S. airports. We have developed the HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX based on our extensive experience serving both TSAís checkpoint and checked baggage screening requirements. The HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX is the result of applying Smiths Detectionís decades of global aviation security experience to provide airports with improved productivity, higher throughput and lower costs for checkpoint screening.Ē
