Frederick Douglass Greater Rochester International Airport (ROC) in New York state, US, is now equipped with Analogic Corporation’s ConneCT Computed Tomography (CT) checkpoint security screening system.

The screening system was deployed in collaboration with the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Checkpoint Property Screening System (CPSS) Programme.

Installed at a TSA checkpoint at ROC, the ConneCT CT system is expected to improve aviation security and passenger experience.

It has been designed to offer enhanced 3-D images to security officers in a touch-free environment.

Analogic claims that its ConneCT security screening system offers enhanced threat detection capabilities, as it combines CT 3-D imaging with advanced explosive threat detection software.

The screening system allows airports and regulators to permit passengers to leave approved liquids and electronics in their baggage at the screening checkpoints.

Analogic CEO Tom Ripp said: “This deployment is a tribute to the strong collaboration between Rochester Airport, the local TSA staff, and Analogic’s service and install team.

“This project also shows how TSA’s investments in improved aviation security help the US manufacturing base. Not only is Analogic headquartered in the USA, one of our key suppliers is Precise Tool and Manufacturing, which is located in the Rochester metropolitan area.”

To support the TSA CPSS Programme, Analogic is deploying more than 300 of its ConneCT screening systems at airport security checkpoints across the country.

Earlier this month, Analogic won contracts worth up to $781.2m from the TSA to procure and maintain 469 base and 469 full-size ConneCT checkpoint security screening systems at airport checkpoints.
