Ninoy Aquino Orders Explosives Detection Systems

Smiths Detection has announced a collaboration with the Philippines’ Office for Transportation Security (OTS) and Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) to boost passenger throughput and experience at terminals 1, 2, and 3 of the country’s premier cosmopolitan airport, Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).

To achieve their goal, OTS partnered with MIAA in the acquisition of 12 HI-SCAN 6040 2is HR units, an advanced and dual-view X-ray detection system, capable of identifying explosives in carry-on baggage. Along with this, OTS also facilitated the installation of 12 iLane.evo units, an automatic tray return system (ATRS), to efficiently streamline the passenger screening process and help improve overall passenger experience at the airport.

An OTS official commented on the joint effort between OTS and MIAA saying, “As we work towards the revival of air travel, Smiths Detection’s HI-SCAN 6040 2is HR scanners’ advanced dual-view X-ray capabilities with ATRS will help to increase ease of our baggage inspection process. By providing high-quality image scans, our operators can determine baggage content more easily. This will minimize the time passengers spend in queues while facilitating tighter security requirements.”
