Aviation security technology firm Analogic is set to introduce its new checkpoint CT Scanner at four airports across the globe, by the end of July this year.

The first demonstrations have begun in Japan and a demonstration in Western Europe is due to start next month. Additional demonstrations in Europe, Asia, and the Asia-Pacific region will be hosted in due course.

The ConneCT solution features CT imaging technology, automated threat detection capabilities, and a touchscreen interface.

“CT scanners for airport checkpoints will replace aging technology systems that are being used at airports.”

Analogic global business development and government relations vice-president Mark Laustra said: “Current technology is simply beyond its lifecycle. CT technology represents a significant leap in both imaging and automated threat detection, giving screeners the information they need to identify prohibited items and potential threats and keep passengers safe.

“Analogic’s CT technology leverages our 50 years of experience with medical CT to provide superior imaging in a next-generation system that has been optimised to provide best-in-class threat detection performance with the lowest cost of ownership on the market.

“We are confident that Analogic will continue to lead the security and detection market to better serve and protect travellers.”

CT scanners for airport checkpoints will replace aging technology systems that are being used at airports. The new technology includes a number of innovations with hope to improve security and reliability, as well as the number of passengers processed.

Analogic’s advanced imaging technologies are also used in computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and automated threat detection systems for the aviation security.
