Complex baggage screening system completes Israeli trials.

TraceGuard Technologies : 15 October, 2007  (New Product)
CompactSafe airport screening system undergoes successful trial at Israeli Ben Gurion Airport for detecting explosive materials.
TraceGuard Technologies has completed a second pilot program of its CompactSafe system at Ben Gurion International Airport in Israel.

In the course of the pilot program, CompactSafe was operated by Israel Airport Authority (IAA) personnel, who own and operate security equipment at Ben Gurion Airport, in several screening locations at the airport. Over 4,000 passenger items were screened by IAA operators with the CompactSafe.

The objectives of the pilot program were: to demonstrate the effectiveness of using an automated screening system, to verify CompactSafe's performance and durability in a realistic operational setting, and to better acquaint the personnel of the IAA with CompactSafe and its capabilities. Earlier this year, TraceGuard completed a pilot in which its personnel had operated CompactSafe at Ben Gurion with the permission of the IAA.

CompactSafe inspects complex items at passenger and baggage screening checkpoints, and works in conjunction with security equipment currently in use to improve accuracy and efficiency in detecting explosives. The system is specifically designed to extract traces of explosives from items such as laptops, electronic devices, shoes and similar size items that are carried in the carry-on luggage, and can also be adapted to improve detection for narcotics and other hazardous materials.

"The Israel Airport Authority is pleased that TraceGuard has completed this pilot program of CompactSafe in conjunction with security authorities at Ben Gurion Airport. CompactSafe has met TraceGuard's expectations in terms of the goals defined together with IAA at the outset of this pilot program to demonstrate the system's durability, operational performance and ease of use. The IAA is examining increased use of automation across Ben Gurion, and CompactSafe promises to help improve security and operational efficiency through an automated process," said a senior IAA official.

"TraceGuard is very proud to have completed this second pilot program at Ben Gurion Airport with the cooperation and participation of the Israel Airport Authority. Ben Gurion is one of the most respected airports in the world, and it is an honor for us to be given the opportunity to demonstrate CompactSafe's capabilities with the IAA in this important and unique location. We believe that CompactSafe offers a unique solution to improving explosives detection, one of the critical challenges in aviation security today, and we are confident that this demonstration will resonate both in Israel and beyond," said Dr Ehud Ganani, Chairman and CEO of TraceGuard.
