The Australian Government plans to install explosive trace detection (ETD) systems at Sydney Airport, Newcastle Airport and Cairns Airport.

The government has allocated $2.6m to the three airports to boost security.

The programme will provide one ETD machine, which is used to detect traces of explosives on people and objects, for every passenger screening lane at the airports’ domestic and international terminals, to be rolled out by the end of the 2011.

The investment is part of Australian Government’s $200m investment programme under the strengthening aviation security initiative to enhance security at the airports by providing funding for a range of new security screening technologies, including body scanners, multiview X-ray machines and additional firearms and explosive detector dogs.
