Sydney Airport Trial Aims to Boost Hold Baggage Security

Smiths Detection is working with Sydney Airport in a trial to boost hold baggage security at Terminal 1 with Computed Tomography (CT) based high-speed hold baggage automatic explosives detection system, HI-SCAN 10080 XCTFollowing a successful trial of CT-based HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX for carry-on bag screening, the airport is the first in Australia to trial the explosives detection system in a ‘live’ operational hold-baggage environment.

The previous trial completed successfully on October 14 2019, featuring the HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX, a CT-based carry-on bag screening system at the checkpoint. The CT technology produces high-resolution 3D images and allows passengers to leave electronic devices and liquids in bags, making security checks less intrusive.

The HI-SCAN 10080 XCT is both TSA certified and Standard 3.1 approved. It is installed on a mezzanine platform at Sydney Airport. The buildability of the platform went through a series of simulations and modifications that were managed by Smiths Detection from end-to-end. An existing X-ray scanner was in operation throughout the construction of the platform and the installation of the HI-SCAN 10080 XCT, preventing downtime.
