Analogic to introduce its new checkpoint CT scanner at four airports across the world
09 March 2018
Analogic is set to introduce its new checkpoint CT scanner at four airports across the world, by the end of July 2018. The first demonstrations have begun in Japan and a demonstration in Western Europe is due to start next month. Additional demonstrations in Europe, Asia, and the Asia-Pacific region will be hosted in due course. The ConneCT solution features CT imaging technology, automated threat detection capabilities, and a touchscreen interface. Analogic global business development and government relations vice president, Mark Laustra, said: “Current technology is simply beyond its lifecycle. CT technology represents a significant leap in both imaging and automated threat detection, giving screeners the information they need to identify prohibited items and potential threats and keep passengers safe.” CT scanners for airport checkpoints will replace aging technology systems that are being used at airports. The new technology includes a number of innovations with hope to improve security and reliability, as well as the number of passengers processed. Analogic’s advanced imaging technologies are also used in computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and automated threat detection systems for the aviation security.
