Smiths Deploy Checkpoint Solutions at Japan’s Chubu Centrair Airport

Smiths Detection has announced that it has been awarded a contract with Central Japan International Airport Co. Ltd to deploy security inspection equipment and smart lanes to boost Chubu Centrair International Airport’s security standards and passenger throughput rate.
The deployment includes a series of automated lanes and X-ray scanners that aim to improve the airports’ screening efficiencies and effectiveness. In addition, CT scanners will be introduced, enabling automatic detection of explosives while allowing passengers to keep liquids and electronics in their hand luggage during screening. Semi-liquid foods such as soup, jam and honey can remain in the bag as well. The checkpoint scanning systems and lanes are expected to be fully installed at Chubu Centrair by the third quarter of 2019.
