This high-tech scanner cuts airport security lines in half
Waiting in line at the airport to get through security can be a serious pain. No matter how efficient the security staff is, it seems as if the line grows longer and longer with each passing minute.
When it finally gets to be your turn to go through security, you then need to take off your shoes, belt, and jewelry, remove electronics and toiletries from your bags, and discard any liquids.
All of these infuriating procedures cost you valuable time and leave you with nothing but a headache.
A company called Analogic developed an innovative method called Analogic ConneCT to provide accurate aviation security screening solutions.
Analogic ConneCT improves upon antiquated screening methods by employing computed tomography (CT) technology. This is the same technology that is used in diagnosing disease in humans.
As passengers’ baggage moves through the scanner, operators can see an entirely three-dimensional rendering of the inside of the bags – without even opening them.
If an object looks suspicious in the rendering, security personnel can further inspect the bag and object in question. The system is also equipped with automatic threat detection technology.
Using this technology allows passengers to move through
security while keeping their electronics and liquids in their bags. They estimate
that this can cut waiting times in half.
When it comes to passenger safety, airports do not mess around… Using Analogic ConneCT technology could be a win win – passengers don’t have to wait as long at the airport, and their safety is also improved.
