Threat detection and security inspection technologies provider Smiths Detection has introduced its new model of a fully automated tray return system.

Dubbed iLane A20, Smiths Detection developed the new system in partnership with material handling solutions provider Interroll.

The intelligent lane builds on the company’s existing portfolio of iLane tray return systems and is claimed to scale up throughput, reduce queues and boost operational efficiency at airport passenger checkpoints.

The automated technology enables multiple people to prepare for security screening and simultaneously perform empty tray verification and the diversion of suspicious baggage.

In addition, iLane A20 features customisable configurations and enables cost reductions as the upgradation does not require the replacement of the whole lane.

The new system can be integrated into Smiths Detection’s centralised screening and management platform, Checkpoint.Evopᵖˡᵘˢ.

In addition, the iLane A20 is compatible with Smiths Detection’s Universal Checkpoint Interface for deploying third-party X-ray systems and accelerating airports’ operations.

Smiths Detection Global aviation director Daan Van Vroonhoven said: “We are proud to unveil the iLane A20, which has evolved from our extensive experience in innovative lane design and delivery.

“As the aviation industry continues to recover from the pandemic, efficiency and passenger experience are more important than ever.

“This new system meets the most demanding of operational environments, supporting a seamless, passenger-friendly screening process by removing bottlenecks and improving staff productivity, all the while reducing operational costs.”

Last October, Smiths Detection joined forces with security technology company Pangiam to accelerate open architecture (OA) adoption in the aviation security space.
