Smiths Detection LLC announced second contract with London Gatwick Airport


26 July 2017

Smiths Detection LLC has announced a second contract with London Gatwick Airport (LGW) in the UK to supply and service eleven additional CTX 9800 DSi™ explosives detection systems (EDS). Following a successful trial and order for nine CTX 9800 EDS announced earlier in 2017, Gatwick will deploy 11 additional units to screen all in-gauge baggage in the North Terminal, helping ensure the safety of more than 45 million passengers a year. This is the first order for the enhanced CTX 9800, which offers increased throughput thanks to a belt speed of 0.5 m/sec. Scheduled for deployment by September 2018, Smiths Detection’s on-site network of expert engineers and technicians will help ensure peak performance and maximum uptime for a minimum of ten years. Capable of screening 1,800 bags/hr, the CTX 9800 combines high-resolution 3D visuals with intuitive navigational tools, allowing the operator to ‘travel’ through the bag and manipulate images.
