Northern Territory (NT) Airports has appointed
Smiths Detection to upgrade the checked baggage and passenger
screening systems at Darwin and Alice Springs airports.
Smiths Detection will install
seven HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX units as part of an integrated
checkpoint with iLane.evo, the automated tray return system for
automated tray handling. Four units of HI-SCAN 10080 XCT, for checked
baggage screening, will also be installed.
Robert Phillips, Head of Security &
Contingency Planning for NT Airports, said, “The new CT
screening equipment provides enhanced capabilities while maximising
passenger throughput. Our airports will be equipped with cutting
edge security technology on par with the best airports
internationally. Darwin and Alice Springs will be the first
airports in Australia to be fully equipped with this advanced
technology. This will not only lead to fewer physical bag
searches, but greater ease for passengers passing through our
6040 CTiX has both TSA AT-2 certification and ECAC EDS CB C3
approval and the HI-SCAN 10080 XCT has the highest, defined
security standard in the EU with ECAC approval as a Standard 3.1
explosives detection system for hold baggage.
Detection understands the diverse needs that airports face and is
committed to improving passenger experience and security, using
our world-leading technology and expertise in CT systems,” said
Jordan Thrupp, Managing Director of Australia and New Zealand,
Smiths Detection. “It is a pleasure to be working with NT
Airports, to deliver a security screening solution which will
enable seamless travel experience for passengers.”
The projects at
Darwin and Alice Springs airports are on schedule to be delivered
