Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Tuesday, 18 October 2011

Smiths Detections explosives detection scanner for carry-on baggage, the HI-SCAN 7555aTiX, has gained EU Explosive Detection Systems (EDS) approval for hold luggage.

The 7555aTiX is now the only multi-purpose, multi-threat detection system for aviation security applications, which is officially EU standard approved and can be used either for liquids detection or bulk explosives screening.

The EDS Standard 2 approval for the 7555aTiX adds to the previously received liquid detection approval, in which Smiths Detections aTiX product line achieved the EUs most stringent screening (LEDS Type C Standard 2) requirements.

Mal Maginnis, President of Smiths Detection, said, Our advanced scanners for multi-purpose, multi-threat detection provide detection capabilities for liquid and bulk explosives that meet the most stringent international security requirements. They are also designed for easy application of software enhancements to meet evolving threats and regulatory requirements. These latest approvals underline Smiths Detections technological leadership.

Compliance under the new Common Evaluation Program (CEP) for deployment in the EU means that strict image quality and detection performance standards for automatic evaluation have been met. Approval, mandatory for use in all EU/ECAC (European Civil Aviation Conference) member states, followed lengthy testing under ECAC procedures.

The compact HI-SCAN 7555aTiX is ideal for use at aviation security checkpoints and for checked baggage EDS screening in low bag volume airports. The system joins Smiths Detections HI-SCAN 10080 EDX-2is and HI-SCAN 10080 EDtS on the list of hold baggage screeners to have achieved EDS Standard 2 under the CEP.
