First Chinese Airport Trial for Smiths Detection’s Smart Security Checkpoint

Smiths Detection is partnering with Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport to trial its smart security checkpoint for the first time in China.

The smart security checkpoint is an integrated system that combines the HI-SCAN 6040p-2is dual view X-ray inspection unit for carry-on luggage and the iLane.evo automated tray handling system. The HI-SCAN 6040p-2is certified by the Civil Aviation Administration of China and is designed to reduce the need for manual bag checks or re-checks. iLane.evo is modular in design, offering the flexibility to develop a variety of configurations to meet different requirements and can expand to handle increasing passenger traffic, and incorporate new inspection systems and functions.

The “live” trial involving real passengers will continue until March 2020.
