Baggage Scanner Meets New Liquid Explosive Detection Criteria

RapiScan Systems : 18 March, 2011  (New Product)
The European type C certification for liquid explosive detection has been received by the 620 DV baggage scanning system from Rapiscan enabling it to be used in European airports
Baggage Scanner Meets New Liquid Explosive Detection Criteria

Rapiscan Systems has announced that its 620 DV multi-view advanced baggage scanner has passed the “Type C” standard set by the European Commission for Civil Aviation (ECAC) for detection of liquid explosive threats, as well as other potential threats.  As a result, airports, aviation regulators and other customers can purchase the Rapiscan 620DV with the assurance that the system fully meets the latest EU regulations for liquid threat detection.  Furthermore, deploying the 620DV will allow European airports to meet the upcoming April 2011 EU deadline to relax current restrictions on the ability of passengers to carry-on liquids onto airplanes.


Rapiscan President Ajay Mehra commented: “This is a major milestone for Rapiscan and European aviation passengers and airports.  The Rapiscan 620DV has been proven in aviation checkpoints around the world.   Now European aviation customers can deploy the 620DV to meet the April 2011 European deadline for the easing of restrictions on carry-on liquids.” Mr. Mehra continued:  “The 620DV AT not only meets worldwide regulatory standards for threat detection, it has significant operational benefits including smaller footprint, greater energy efficiency, and reduced weight loading.”


The Rapiscan 620DV has also been approved for use by the US Transportation Security Administration for both aviation checkpoint screening and air cargo screening. With approximately 1000 systems ordered by major airports worldwide, the 620DV AT is one of the most widely deployed multi-view checkpoint X-ray screening systems. It can also be used for critical non-aviation applications such as air cargo screening, military checkpoints, customs inspection and protection of national infrastructure.  Specifically, the 620DV:


* Generates multiple views of scanned items, which allows operators to identify threats faster, improving checkpoint throughput.

* Minimises hand searches by allowing cluttered bags to be cleared on screen.

* Pinpoints potential threats so the item can be found immediately.

* Allows screeners to divert potentially threatening items to a separate inspection area, so passengers can continue through lines uninterrupted.

* Uses a software based threat detection platform that can be upgraded in response to changing customer requirements, reducing the need for hardware changes.
