Smiths Detection to Upgrade Security at Malpensa and Linate Airports in Milan, Italy

SEA S.p.A has awarded Smiths Detection a contract to upgrade the explosives detection systems (EDS) to ECAC Standard 3 at Malpensa and Linate Airports in Milan, Italy.

With Standard 3.1 approval (the highest in the EU) and TSA certification, the HI-SCAN 10080 XCT scanners have the capacity to handle predicted passenger traffic growth for the two airports over the next 5-10 years.

Jacques Bernardi, Sales Director Europe South/West & Africa, Smiths Detection, said, “Leveraging very advanced technology, the HI-SCAN 10080 XCT offers the necessary levels of security, flexibility and productivity to meet the various demands of this installation. We will also have a dedicated engineering team supporting the two airports.”

Using a dual-view, dual-energy line scanner with high resolution 3D Computed Tomography (CT), the HI-SCAN 10080 XCT produces a lot of useful data. Detection algorithms are interchangeable on a bag by bag basis depending on the destination and associated risk level. The belt speed is 0.5m/sec, enabling it to handle up to 1800 bags per hour and hence make the screening process faster and more efficient. A large rectangular tunnel (107 x 81cm), high quality, full colour images and a low false alarm rate all also support the most challenging performance levels.

The deal includes a minimum of 13 (and maximum of 20) HI-SCAN 10080 XCT scanners including redundant servers for connection to the network; up to 35 workstations; and a 10 year service agreement.

 Delivery and installation will be rolled out between July 2019 and September 2020.
