Schiphol and GE identify future passenger terminal security needs.

GE Security : 15 April, 2008  (Application Story)
Security technology collaboration between Amsterdam's Schiphol airport and GE Security concentrate on enhancing passenger flow.
GE Security has announced the next steps in its Homeland Protection business' collaboration with Schiphol Nederland to examine, develop and make available innovative technology solutions to help further improve operational security processes at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol announced in March.

In the first month of the technology collaboration, GE Security and Schiphol Nederland have identified multiple advanced technology-based projects related to checkpoint flow enhancements and increased security effectiveness. The ultimate goals of the projects will be to further enhance efficiency and throughput at the security checkpoint while improving effectiveness of the screening and adding to the passenger experience.

Initial technology innovation is focusing on further enhanced interoperability between existing and new security sensors along with optimisation of new advanced technologies for use at the checkpoint.

Development of the first operational test units has begun at GE Security's Magnetics Centre of Excellence in San Diego in preparation for operational test and evaluation at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.

"We are pleased to announce good initial progress in our collaboration to further the use of advanced technology at passenger checkpoints at European airports," said Dennis Cooke, president and CEO, GE Security's Homeland Protection business. "We are optimistic that this cooperation with Amsterdam Airport Schiphol will result in operational efficiencies and further enhancements to security while allowing passengers to have a better and faster screening experience."

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 advanced technology passenger checkpoint solutions for government and airport operator stakeholders and their respective customers across the European Union.

GE Security's industry-leading aviation security technologies, including the SRT Kiosk, incorporating advanced Quadrupole Resonance-powered shoe-scanning capability, is on display at Passenger Terminal Expo, stand 1550, in Amsterdam.
