Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Tuesday, 30 July 2013

Smiths Detection has launched a Threat Identification Module (TIM) for liquids, allowing an upgrade of its standard X-ray baggage screening systems to enable the detection of liquid threats.

Designed as a simple add-on, TIM can be readily attached to Smiths Detections widely used HI-SCAN 6040i and HI-SCAN 6046si scanners.

The module will automatically upgrade their detection standards to those approved as Liquid Explosives Detection Systems (LEDS) under the stringent EU LEDS Standard 2 Type C requirements which take effect on 31 January 2014.

TIM enables automated screening of cabin baggage, in real-time, with minimum interruption to airport operations.

Hans Zirwes, Vice President for International Sales of Smiths Detection, said, With TIM, we provide our customers a highly cost-efficient way to upgrade their current or new X-ray scanners. It fits seamlessly with the design of our existing systems and maintains the renowned high quality of Smiths Detections imaging.
