Optosecurity, leading provider of remote screening (or centralised image processing) solutions for aviation security checkpoints, and STI Security Training International, security training specialists offering computer-and web-based training solutions, collaborate to bring the aviation security industry a new training tool for airports deploying eVelocity.

Optosecurity and STI’s joint efforts aim to improve the efficiency of the screening staff training by developing a computer-based security training software specific to eVelocity. STI Security Training International’s training software operator training system (OTS) premium and OTS online are among the world’s leading products in the field of X-ray image interpretation.

STI’s OTS X-ray image interpretation training software will be adapted according to Optosecurity´s eVelocity graphical user interface (GUI) and image format. This customisation will ensure that screeners get the best training possible while meeting threat image protection (TIP) training requirements and improving overall checkpoint’s security level.

"We are pleased to work with STI to bring customised security training software to airports using our eVelocity remote screening solutions," says Tim Mathews, president and chief executive officer for Optosecurity. He adds: "It will simplify refresher training for security staff who are already familiar using the eVelocity GUI on a daily basis."
