Major Dutch airport signs security innovation project agreement.

GE Security : 06 March, 2008  (Application Story)
Innovative security technology to be developed by GE Security for Schiphol airport in Amsterdam.
GE Security has announced its Homeland Protection business has agreed with Schiphol Nederland to examine, develop and make available innovative technology solutions to further help improve operational security processes at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.

Both GE Security and Schiphol Nederland believe that the joint advanced technology aviation security collaboration will lead to a real-world evaluation of existing and emerging security products and technologies from the European perspective. The primary goal of the joint development program is to identify, evaluate and eventually deploy technology solutions that may improve checkpoint security for government and airport operator stakeholders and their respective customers across the European Union.

"We believe the technologies and products that are being and will be evaluated in this first European operational test collaboration will make it possible to further enhance security while allowing passengers to have a better and faster screening experience," said Dennis Cooke, president and CEO, GE Security's Homeland Protection business. "GE's vision for the checkpoint of the future calls for both improved security and a much improved passenger experience and we believe that our work with Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, one of Europe's most innovative airports, will help to make that vision a reality."

'In order to be able to anticipate and meet the needs of changing global security challenges, we must cooperate with industry at the early stages of technology development," said Miro Jerkovic, senior manager research and development, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. "The main advantage of this approach is that jointly developed technologies and concepts meet end-user requirements. This will increase the applicability of the resultant technologies and products.'
