Analogic to Launch Breakthrough Checkpoint Security Screening System for European Aviation Market at Passenger Terminal Expo 2017 in Amsterdam


PEABODY, Mass., 2017-03-08 17:15 CET (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Analogic Corporation (Nasdaq:ALOG), enabling the world's medical imaging and aviation security technology, today announced that it will launch its ConneCT™ Checkpoint CT (computed tomography) screening system for the European market at the Passenger Terminal Expo in Amsterdam, March 14–16. Utilizing Analogic’s advanced CT technology alongside state-of-the-art threat detection software, the ConneCT incorporates the latest in security and medical innovations to lower airport screening costs, increase passenger throughput and elevate the level of security for the traveling public.

Analogic’s ConneCT is the culmination of 25 years of leadership in advanced CT security screening solutions.  Analogic CT technology has been deployed at over 1,200 airports worldwide for checked baggage. The ConneCT checkpoint security system features a new modular imaging system based on advanced medical imaging technology and an interoperable network architecture designed to maximize reliability and achieve the lowest total cost of ownership. Its threat detection software is engineered to allow passengers to keep liquids and electronics in their carry-on baggage, increase staff productivity and reduce false alarms.

“The launch of ConneCT is not only about Analogic’s leadership in CT technology – it also reflects a new direct partnership with technology decision-makers that gives airports more flexibility and lowers costs,” said Jim Ryan, senior vice president of security systems. “Our customers want direct access to the latest in screening technologies and the freedom to make ‘best-of-breed’ choices for complementary checkpoint equipment and software, as well as on-site service support. Analogic will enable dynamic and tailored solutions that evolve with airport needs over the lifecycle of the product.”

“European airports have been early adopters of new technology, recognizing the opportunity to do three key things: improve detection capabilities to keep the traveling public safe, transform the airport experience for the traveling public and get passengers through security quickly so they can enjoy airport shopping and dining venues,” said Mark Laustra, vice president global business development and government relations. “We are pleased to launch ConneCT, our next-generation CT checkpoint scanner.”

Analogic developed CT technology for medical use, adapting the technology for detection and security of checked baggage. The ConneCT has been engineered and designed specifically for airport checkpoints, representing a new industry standard for imaging, with 100x more data available in each image than the previous standard. This allows screeners to manipulate a 3D image to view bags from all angles, revealing items that might otherwise be hidden.

In February of 2016, Neil Thompson, operations director of London Luton Airport, commented on Analogic’s UK trial of COBRA, Analogic’s first-generation checkpoint CT. "Through the trials with Analogic, we have been able to demonstrate ways to significantly improve security checks. Analogic 3D CT technology has shown the promise of providing a great passenger experience whilst improving security."

Analogic will feature the ConneCT scanner at its booth (RAI Amsterdam, Hall 8, Booth #10050) during the Passenger Terminal Expo 2017 next week. On March 16, at 12:55 local time, Mark Laustra will deliver a presentation on the future of aviation security technology and regulation.

The ConneCT screening system has achieved critical milestones on its way toward Transportation Security Administration (TSA) certification in the US and is slated to enter the ECAC certification protocol in the spring of this year. Analogic remains committed to working closely with various international certification agencies and airports this year to bring the ConneCT system to the global market.

Cloudflare Announces Mobile SDK to Monitor Network Performance for Applications22.3.2018 14:00Pressemelding

New free solution delivers network analytics to any mobile app developer SAN FRANCISCO, March 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cloudflare, the leading Internet performance and security company, today announced the Cloudflare Mobile SDK, a free solution that enables any mobile app developer to understand network performance and metrics. Consumers are frustrated by mobile apps that are slow, crash, or deliver errors that degrade the user experience. For mobile app developers, a bad user experience means poor reviews, lower engagement, and reduced conversion on business metrics. Delivering consistent app performance requires focusing on every link in the chain: app code, network calls between the app and edge networks, and server infrastructure. There are a number of solutions that give developers analytics on their applications, but there has never been a way for app developers to understand how often their apps fail due to network errors.
