Smiths Detection Unveils Integrated Checkpoint Solution Which Harnesses Biometric Technology

Smiths Detection used inter airport Europe 2019 earlier this month, to showcase an integrated checkpoint solution which harnesses biometric technology to enable risk-based screening practices.

The company partnered with experts in the field of biometry to, for the first time, create a proof of concept which integrates biometric identity management solutions with class-leading screening solutions.

Inter airport delegates were able to experience the biometric capable checkpoint in action – which also employed Smiths Detection’s advanced CT scanner, HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX, the iCMORE Weapons automatic object recognition capability and the advanced tray return system, iLane.evo.

“At Smiths Detection, we’re dedicated to delivering a seamless passenger journey and we are very excited to be driving biometric checkpoint technology forward in a rapidly developing marketplace,” said Smiths Detection Vice President Europe, Africa and Marketing, Tony Tielen. “As a trusted partner to airports across the world, we are working with the aviation industry to deliver risk-based screening at departure, transit and arrival airports to streamline the checkpoint journey to make it even safer and more efficient.”

Biometrics is the ‘unique identifier’ for passengers, and through integration of biometrics directly into the checkpoint, passengers can be matched with their trays to enable real-time risk-based screening.

Risk-based screening is designed to increase operational efficiency and effectiveness through continual risk assessments relevant to the individual passenger journey, resulting in shorter and easier journeys for passengers.

Through passenger and tray identification, new data insights can be gathered to inform decision making at airports – based on flights, airlines or destinations.

Matching passengers with trays also enables the sharing of screening results with transit or arrival airports, and the combination of hold baggage and checkpoint screening results.

During the four exhibition days (8-11 October) of inter airport Europe, a total of 14,962 trade visitors from 108 countries visited the Munich Trade Fair Centre in Germany. The next inter airport Europe 2020 will take place 5-8 October 2021.
