Copenhagen Airport Enhances Security with 18 New Scanners

Copenhagen Airport has installed 18 of Smiths Detections advanced eqo millimetre-wave scanners to meet new EU regulatory requirements for enhanced passenger screening.

The eqo portal, which can detect threat items of any material hidden beneath clothing, will be used for additional checks at central and transit checkpoints when alarms or suspicions are raised during primary screening.

Passengers are scanned in seconds, providing an immediate result to the checkpoint officer who can see where eqo has identified any suspicious area on the body.

A localised search simplifies the process compared to the full body pat-down needed when traditional metal detector alarms go off.

Johnnie Mller, Head of Security at the airport said, Copenhagen Airports is satisfied with enhancing the security performance of our checkpoints with the introduction of the eqo security scanner. The technology raises the detection capability to comply with new EU regulations while at the same time improving the experience of our passengers. Integrating seamlessly into our existing checkpoints, the eqo security scanner is a welcome addition to the security infrastructure of the airport.

eqo is not only installed in airports around the world, but is also used in prison, military, customs and other critical infrastructure applications.
