Smiths Detection equips Leonardo di Vinci International Airport in Rome with advanced carry-on baggage screening technology

Smiths Detection Group Ltd Stand: D60

Smiths Detection’s HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX is a computed tomography (CT) X-ray scanner producing high-resolution volumetric 3D images for quicker and deeper baggage assessment and low false-alarm rates. The scanners allow for electronics and liquids to remain in bags, speeding up passenger screening and reducing touchpoints.

The combination of the CT X-ray scanners, alongside 45 already supplied Smiths Detection IONSCAN 600 trace detectors, will further improve security and operational efficiency. The IONSCAN 600 is a highly sensitive, non-radioactive, lightweight, portable desktop system that detects and identifies trace amounts of explosives and narcotics.

The HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX can be equipped with Smiths Detection’s object recognition software, iCMORE, which uses advanced algorithms to reduce the burden on operators – and potential errors – by automating the detection process for prohibited items.

Stefano Scardigli, Senior Key Account, Smiths Detection said: “We are delighted to supply Leonardo di Vinci Rome International Airport with 30 HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX scanners. Utilising 3D imagery, our scanners offer the advanced screening of carry-on baggage, enhancing security and improving operational efficiency. Being able to leave electronics and liquids in carry-on baggage will help expedite the screening process, especially in light of the well documented staffing pressures at airports around the world.”

Marco Stramaccioni – Chief Executive Officer of ADR Security for Leonardo da Vinci Rome International Airport – said: “Aeroporti di Roma looks forward to be a frontrunner for passenger experience and security at Leonardo di Vinci Rome International Airport. As passenger numbers increase, we will be well placed to efficiently screen passengers, reducing the burden on our operators. By harnessing the power of CT technology, we have futureproofed our security checkpoints.”

Smiths Detection’s HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX is certified by the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) under the Accessible Property Screening System (APSS) program to detection standard 6.2, Level 1, permitting the scanner to operate at an enhanced level with lower false alarm rates, as well as ECAC and STAC EDS CB C3 approval.
