Vanderlande Acquires Optosecurity & Screening Solution Approved for Primary X-ray Systems at US Airports

After working closely together for several years, Vanderlande has acquired the Canadian software company Optosecurity as of 29 June 2017. The acquisition further strengthens Vanderlande’s integrated portfolio of solutions and position as a market leader for value-added logistic process automation at airports.
Vanderlande and its newly formed business unit Vanderlande Advanced Passenger Checkpoints (APC, formerly Optosecurity Corp.) have already received approval from the US Department of Homeland Security Transportation Security Administration for their Automated Security Lane (ASL) solution integrated with Smiths Detection’s aTiX X-ray. The approval comes shortly after Vanderlande received TSA approval of its ASL integrated with the Rapiscan 620DV. Vanderlande’s ASL is the first solution to be approved for use on both of TSA’s primary X-ray systems.
