Smiths Detection has been selected by Incheon International Airport Corporation (IIAC) to deploy its high-speed explosives detection system (EDS) HI-SCAN 10080 XCT for hold baggage screening at Incheon International Airport (ICN) Terminal 2 as part of its Phase 4 Expansion Construction Project. The contract includes an equipment service agreement.
The expansion is projected to increase ICN’s capacity to allow 29 million more passengers and create 60,000 new jobs. This will make Incheon International Airport the third-largest airport globally.
The hold baggage screening system, HI-SCAN 10080 XCT features a dual-view dual-energy X-ray line scanner with full 3D volumetric computed tomography (CT) imaging and reconstruction. The system offers a high throughput of up to 1,800 bags per hour. Deployed in major airports like Heathrow Airport and Frankfurt Airport, the HI-SCAN 10080 XCT is both ECAC EDS Standard 3 and 3.1 approved and Transportation Security Administration (TSA) certified.
Installation is expected to be completed by October 2024. IIAC is also keen on exploring adoption of Smiths Detection’s iCMORE capabilities using artificial intelligence algorithms and advanced material discrimination to automatically detect an ever-expanding list of dangerous goods and lithium batteries.
