Smiths Detection Announces Over $170 Million of New Contracts in Russia, Dubai and India

London – Smiths Detection, part of the global technology company Smiths Group, recently announced over $170 million of new contracts.

In Russia and Dubai, Smiths Detection has gained significant orders worth over $150 million, in the transportation, and ports and border markets. The contracts include substantial numbers of HCV mobile systems made in the company’s new St Petersburg facility for the Russian border authority, and state-of-the-art airport security equipment – such as explosives detection systems for carry-on and checked baggage – to be deployed in the new Terminal 3 at Dubai International Airport. All of the bags at the new Terminal 3, Concourse 2 and Concourse 3 expansion will be screened by Smiths Detection’s technology.

Smiths Detection has won over $28 million worth of business in India for airport security systems since January 2007. The contracts include orders for Smiths Detection’s automatic explosives detection systems for hold baggage and passenger screening equipment.

Smiths Detection’s world-leading threat detection technology is deployed in 85 per cent of the world’s airports and in mass transit systems, helping to keep passengers safe when they travel.

Risk-based screening (RBS) is becoming increasingly popular in some aviation security sectors.
With increasing passenger numbers, new regulations and ever-evolving threats, airports are constantly challenged to maintain operational efficiency and improve security effectiveness.
