Smiths Detection Launches Aviation Insider

Smiths Detection has launched Aviation Insider, a new online hub for the aviation sector.

The websites launch comes as Smiths Detection - a leading designer and manufacturer of sensors that detect and identify explosives, weapons, chemical agents, biohazards, nuclear and radioactive material, narcotics and contraband - has set up a dedicated aviation solutions team to help airports improve their security, based on a fully integrated approach to security from kerb to gate.

The series of attacks on airports over the past two years is evidence of the fact that the worlds 2,200 airports are facing unprecedented security threats, said Cameron Mann, Global Market Director, Aviation at Smiths Detection. Taking an integrated approach to aviation security, from kerb to gate, has never been more important. This has been recognised by IATA and ACI with their Smart Security scheme, and is also at the core of Smiths Detections approach to provide integrated airport security solutions.

Airport operators need to consider passenger experience, operational efficiency and security effectiveness when developing their security processes.

They are interrelated and need to be considered together so that airports can streamline their operations and reap the benefits of improved efficiency and productivity, added Mr. Mann. Aviation Insider is designed to be a critical hub for industry opinion; a place where best practice ideas can be shared and where discussion between practitioners can thrive for this evolving landscape. Passengers need to keep flying with minimal delays and maximum safety and we hope that this hub will contribute to making that happen.
