Smiths Detection Hold Baggage Screening Technology to Support Upgrade to ECAC Standard 3 EDS at Munich Airport

Del

Smiths Detection has been selected by the District Government of Upper Bavaria to supply ECAC Standard 3 EDS hold baggage screening systems to Munich Airport. The contract comprises 25 x HI-SCAN 10080 XCT advanced scanners which amalgamate high resolution X-ray technology, computed tomography (CT) and advanced detection algorithms to deliver exceptional levels of security whilst also increasing operational efficiency. A service agreement is also included.

The scanners will not only detect the explosives threats specified by the new standard, but can also be easily upgraded to meet future requirements to identify evolving threats. Combining a very fast belt speed with a large rectangular tunnel, they offer a continuously high throughput of up to 1,800 bags per hour. Extremely sharp, full colour, high resolution images, as well as a low false alarm rate also support the greater levels of efficiency required by the new regulations.

Munich is Germany’s second largest airport and the only one in Europe to be awarded 5-star status in the Skytrax World Airport Rating. It already handles 100 airlines flying to over 250 destinations in over 70 countries with plans for further development. The new technology will deliver the efficiencies required by such a busy hub both now and in the future.

“We welcome the opportunity to help airports in upgrading to ECAC Standard 3. It is a major step but the rewards are significant in terms of higher levels of security and operational efficiency,” explained Tony Tielen, VP EMEA for Smiths Detection. “The new equipment will be seamlessly integrated into Munich Airport’s existing infrastructure to ensure smooth ongoing service during the upgrade.”

To be deployed in both terminals, the first three scanners will be installed and fully operational by the end of this year. The remaining installations will be progressively rolled out between 2018 and 2021. Also included in the deal are 49 Level 2 and 3 workstations and a Matrix Server.
