To keep pace both with the rapidly-increasing number of global travellers, and evolving security threats, airports are constantly looking for ways to enhance performance and security.
Rapiscan Systems relies not only on its significant industry experience, but also the insights it gains from customers, to make decisions about the technology and services that can help achieve those goals. As a result, in the past year the company has invested heavily in the areas it believes will have the most impact in strengthening its customers’ most critical security needs.
Most recently, the company added the Rapiscan TRSTM to its strong portfolio of aviation security products in response to a consistently growing number of global travellers per year. This automated tray return system was designed to increase passenger flow and improve the overall passenger experience at the checkpoints. TRSTM has proved invaluable in increasing operational efficiency by reducing manual staff handling and enabling passenger data collection for risk assessments.
In 2017, Rapiscan acquired a full portfolio of trace detection solutions that perfectly complements its current operational offerings. With this new line of trace detection technology, airports, borders and any public venues will be able to identify a wide range of explosives and narcotics faster and more efficiently than ever before. The portfolio includes six solutions to fit any situation, and complete any security infrastructure.
As is consistent with this industry, the rise of modern technology has prompted a migration towards more advanced solutions. As a result, airports around the world are looking to modernise legacy CT scanning technology and implement real-time tomography at the checkpoint. This innovative solution to security screening has proven to lower operational costs, increase throughput and security, and better equip airports for their future needs. Rapiscan’s latest RTTTM 110 has a unique design and high-resolution imaging technology capable of processing 1,800 bags per hour, to improve operational efficiency and security.
Rapiscan’s team understands that having the best technology means nothing without also having the highest global certifications and regulatory approvals. Indeed, its technology is ranked one of the most qualified in the industry for deployment in airports around the world with certification including from US Transportation Security Administration for passengers and cargo screening, ECAC/EU, France Civil Aviation Authority (STAC), UK Department for Transport for passengers, hold baggage and cargo screening, Japan Civil Aviation Bureau (JCAB), Italy ENAC, and the Airport Authority of India (AAI).
