Analogic Corporation CEO Tom Ripp will co-present at this year’s Passenger Terminal Expo. The presentation is titled “Transforming Aviation Security, Staffing, and Passenger Experience.”
As airports and airlines seek to rebuild post-COVID-19, a redesign of how passengers experience security offers an opportunity for transformation and operational improvements. Attendees of the presentation will learn how Analogic has worked with airports, airlines, and TSA to redesign checkpoint operations and implement new high-throughput checkpoint screening processes.
The presentation is scheduled for 16:45 CET, on March 14, at RAI Amsterdam.
In addition to co-presenting, Analogic will be showcasing its advanced checkpoint CT security screening technology at PTE Booth 2150.
The ECAC and TSA certified system, which has over 500 deployments worldwide, is sold by Analogic under the brand name ConneCT and internationally by Rapiscan Systems as the 920CT. It delivers automated threat detection and improved passenger throughput compared to legacy checkpoint x-ray scanners, combining computed tomography (CT) 3-D imaging with advanced explosive threat detection software. The technology enables airports and regulators to allow passengers to leave approved liquids and electronics in their bags at the screening checkpoints, thereby decreasing divest time while enhancing throughput. It features an innovative “truck wheel” mechanical design to enable the benefits of rotational CT without the reliability and service challenges of large slewing bearings, an interoperable network architecture that supports remote image analysis and system monitoring and is open architecture ready for third-party algorithms. The mechanical design combined with the system’s inherent CT capability yield a robust, upgradable, and extended life system, which translates to a lower total cost of ownership and reduced long-term capital outlay.
