Smiths Detection to Upgrade Security at Chubu Centrair International Airport in Japan

 Smiths Detection has been awarded a contract to deploy security inspection equipment and smart lanes at Chubu Centrair International Airport in Japan.

The deployment includes a series of automated lanes and X-ray scanners that aim to improve the airports’ screening efficiencies and effectiveness.

 In addition, CT scanners will be introduced, enabling automatic detection of explosives while allowing passengers to keep liquids and electronics in their hand luggage during screening. Semi-liquid foods such as soup, jam and honey can remain in the bag as well.

The checkpoint scanning systems and lanes are expected to be fully installed at Chubu Centrair by the third quarter of 2019.

“A world-class tourist destination like Japan deserves world-class airports,” said Takehara Hidekiyo, Managing Director, Smiths Detection, Japan. “Raising security standards in airports has come up on the national agenda, and Chubu Centrair has shown their full commitment towards this goal. We are glad to help them on their journey with our innovative, next-generation checkpoint solutions, and to once again demonstrate our value in this highly important market.”
