New X-Ray Screening Equipment For Newcastle Airport

RapiScan Systems : 01 November, 2011  (Application Story)
Newcastle's International Airport will remove the need for re-scanning baggage with the use of a new X-Ray screening system from Rapiscan Systems
New X-Ray Screening Equipment For Newcastle Airport
Newcastle International Airport (NIA) has selected the innovative Rapiscan Systems 620 DV X-ray (screening) equipment, as part of the airport’s upgrade between November 2011 and April 2012.

NIA has selected the latest in technology innovation in the aviation security industry to provide security screening for cabin baggage. Rapiscan Systems 620DV is an advanced checkpoint screening solution with dual view technology. The 620DV generates multiple views of scanned items, which allows operators to identify threats faster, improving passenger throughput whilst also minimising hand searches by allowing cluttered bags to be cleared on screen. The dual-view technology pinpoints potential threats and allows screeners to divert potentially threatening items to a separate inspection area, so passengers can continue through lines uninterrupted. The 620DV uses a software based threat detection platform that can be upgraded in response to changing customer requirements, reducing the need for hardware changes.

Rapiscan System’s 620DV also removes the need to reposition and re-scan bags, thereby improving detection and throughput. Rapiscan System’s is able to offer a complete solution to its customers including design, installation, commissioning, service support and training  allowing the airport to maximise security, improve throughput and continue to provide a streamlined service to passengers.

David Kent, VP Sales EMEA, at Rapiscan Systems commented: “Rapiscan Systems is pleased to work with Newcastle International Airport in upgrading their security screening and installing the latest in technology innovation. This is an example of airports upgrading from single view to dual view technology to increase security and enhance passenger throughput, benefitting both the airport and the passengers as they travel through the terminal. Furthermore it is yet another example of a Type C deployment in Europe ahead of the proposed April 2013 lift on the restrictions on liquids, aerosols and gels deadline and goes to show the importance for Airports to maintain and invest in the latest in advanced security screening solutions.”
