L3’s ClearScan® Passes New European Standard for Cabin Baggage Screening

L3 Technologies has announced that its ClearScan® automated explosives detection system for carry-on baggage is the first to pass the new European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC-EU) C3 Standard under ECAC’s testing programme. This standard enables passengers to keep electronics and liquids in their carry-on bags, expediting checkpoint traffic with an enhanced level of security screening.

This follows L3’s June 2017 achievement of the C2 Standard, which allows electronic devices, but not liquids, to stay in carry-on bags. In the United States, ClearScan also passed TSA certification in April 2017.
