L3 Technologies has opened an advanced Passenger Screening Experience Center near Ronald Reagan National Airport in Arlington, Virginia. The interactive center establishes an environment that allows security professionals and airport operators to test screening systems and trial new concepts in operational efficiency.
“This innovative center was designed to showcase our integrated checkpoint screening technologies and serve as an interactive venue to share ideas with our government and private security partners,” said Todd W. Gautier, L3’s Senior Vice President and President of itsElectronic Systems segment.
The Experience Center features L3’s technology and automation solutions for aviation and critical infrastructure checkpoints. The 6,000-square-foot space includes L3’s ProVision® 2 body scanner, ClearScan® checkpoint computed tomography (CT) cabin baggage scanner, Mach-SmartLane®automated tray return system, B220 HT™ explosives trace detector, ACX™ 6.4-MV X-ray baggage scanner and Mach-SEMS®, L3’s security efficiency management software integrated monitoring system.
ClearScan’s CT detection capabilities enable passengers to keep certain electronics and liquids in their bags. At the center, ClearScan is integrated with L3’s Mach-SmartLane automated diverter lane, which automatically routes suspect bags to a search area, expediting cleared bags on their way to the pickup point.
