Smiths Detection to deploy automated checkpoint at Aalborg Airport

German security solutions provider Smiths Detection’s local distributor Houlberg Instrumentering is set to supply automated checkpoint lane technology known as iLane.evo to Aalborg Airport in Denmark. 

German security solutions provider Smiths Detection’s local distributor Houlberg Instrumentering is set to supply automated checkpoint lane technology known as iLane.evo to Aalborg Airport in Denmark.

Smiths Detection will also upgrade HI-SCAN 6040 aTiX scanners that will allow travellers to leave electronic items in their hand luggage.

Both technologies are expected to create advanced airport-security checkpoints in Denmark while offering a fully integrated and networked solution.

According to Smiths Detection, the iLane.evo checkpoint lane will help abolish bottlenecks, keep queues under control and ensure that the passengers and baggage keep moving.

“We no longer need random trace-detector searches, which are a major improvement for both passengers and operators.”

The extended reclaim areas both manage three passengers at the same time. If any trays are carrying suspicious items, they are automatically diverted to a secondary search area and all trays return to the start automatically once the process ends.

Existing HI-SCAN 6040 aTiX scanner software will be upgraded to EDS CB C2 standards, which enables travellers to leave electronics such as laptops, tablets, smartphones, and cameras in their hand luggage for scanning.

Aalborg Airport security head Søren Bjerg said: “We no longer need random trace-detector searches, which are a major improvement for both passengers and operators.

“And we have achieved the ultimate aim of significantly increasing throughput. The checkpoint project is a significant component in the plan to secure future overall growth, and it is not finished yet.”

The new checkpoint lanes will be deployed early next year and the remaining four checkpoints will be networked.
