Analogic Corporation has launched its ConneCTTM Checkpoint CT (computed tomography) screening system for the European market.
Utilising Analogic’s advanced CT technology alongside state-of-the-art threat detection software, the ConneCT incorporates the latest in security and medical innovations to lower airport screening costs, increase passenger throughput and elevate the level of security for the travelling public.
The ConneCT checkpoint security system features a new modular imaging system based on advanced medical imaging technology and an interoperable network architecture designed to maximise reliability and achieve the lowest total cost of ownership. Its threat detection software is engineered to allow passengers to keep liquids and electronics in their carry-on baggage, increase staff productivity and reduce false alarms.
“The launch of ConneCT is not only about Analogic’s leadership in CT technology — it also reflects a new direct partnership with technology decision-makers that gives airports more flexibility and lowers costs,” says Jim Ryan, Senior Vice President of Security Systems. “Our customers want direct access to the latest in screening technologies and the freedom to make ‘best-of-breed’ choices for complementary checkpoint equipment and software, as well as on-site service support. Analogic will enable dynamic and tailored solutions that evolve with airport needs over the lifecycle of the product.”
Analogic CT technology has been deployed at over 1,200 airports worldwide for checked baggage. In February of 2016, Neil Thompson, Operations Director, London Luton Airport, commented on Analogic’s UK trial of COBRA, Analogic’s first-generation checkpoint CT. “Through the trials with Analogic, we have been able to demonstrate ways to significantly improve security checks. Analogic 3D CT technology has shown the promise of providing a great passenger experience whilst improving security.”
