The procurement agency of Germany’s national interior ministry has tasked Smiths Detection to provide hold baggage screening equipment at Berlin Brandenburg Airport that comply with the federal police agency’s EDS Standard 3 regulation.
Smiths Detection said Wednesday the HI-SCAN 10080 XCT systems use x-ray technology, computed tomography and detection algorithms to provide levels of security and meet threat identification and false alarm rate requirements.
Tony Tielen, Smiths Detection vice president of operations in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, said the company will deliver its EDS Standard 3-compliant hold baggage screening systems to help secure flights that depart from Berlin Brandenburg Airport.
The contract will cover eight HI-SCAN 10080 XCT systems and 30 image analysis stations as well as six HI-SCAN 5180si models that can be used as backup in different locations around the airport when needed, the contractor noted.
Smiths Detection plans to deliver and install all equipment at the airport by the end of this year.
