Two airports in Australia have bought a liquid bottle scanning system designed by Battelle and Sellex to detect potentially harmful substances in liquids, aerosols and gels.
Sydney and Brisbane Airports will deploy the LS10 scanners at security checkpoints in international terminals, the companies said Tuesday.
“We continue to see interest from airports around the world,” said Mike Janus, general manager for critical infrastructure at Battelle National Security.
London’s Heathrow Airport has acquired LS10 systems for its terminals as have airports in Aberdeen, Southampton, Glasgow and others in Scandinavia.
The LS10 uses dual-sensing ultrasonic and radio frequency technology as it works to spot flammable and explosive LAGS housed in plastic, glass, paper, ceramic and metal containers.
Battelle builds the scanners at its manufacturing plant in Dublin, Ohio and Western Advance will distribute the systems in Australia.
