Smiths Detection announced that it has been awarded a contract by Gold Coast Airport to enhance its cabin bag screening with advanced Computed Tomography (CT) screening systems. The announcement follows a successful six-week trial completed in March last year.
Gold Coast Airport will install up to twelve HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX screening machines within the passenger screening point during the next three years. Initial installation will see four CTiX units installed at the existing screening point in April 2020, with the remaining eight units to be installed in line with the opening of the southern terminal expansion and refurbishment of the existing terminal. The HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX is a luggage screening system that uses CT technology that produces high resolution 3D volumetric images without the need to remove liquids and electrics. The integrated security lanes at Gold Coast Airport will also include iLane.evo and Checkpoint.Evoplus.
