Smiths Detection Awarded Approximately $7 Million Contract for Bottled Liquid Scanners

Smiths Detection has won a contract award for $6.8m to supply RespondeR Bottled Liquid Scanner (BLS) units to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) for use at U.S. airport passenger screening checkpoints.

RespondeR BLS is a compact system that uses Raman spectroscopy technology to identify hazardous liquids in sealed bottles. The scan and analysis are completed within 20 seconds.

Lance Roncalli, vice president of sales, Americas, and U.S. Managing Director for Smiths Detection, said: “The RespondeR BLS technology is a key solution for fast and accurate liquid screening. This award reaffirms our commitment to helping TSA keep travellers safe.”

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.
