Aviation regulatory requirements are evolving and creating challenges for traditional X-Ray scanners. Smaller and emerging threats like homemade explosives (HME’s) are of increasing concern. New regulatory guidelines that include the lifting of restrictions for liquids in cabin baggage will greatly benefit travellers but place a greater burden on security equipment. This is all occurring in an airport environment where throughput demands are increasing, and operational budgets are under pressure.
The L-3 CLEARSCAN™ is the first computed tomography (CT) device designed specifically for the aviation checkpoint and the only system to pass the TSA AT-2 requirement and the new European Civil Aviation Conference C3 Standard. The EU EDSCB C3 standard achieves a dramatic improvement in threat detection while also imparting a number of operational improvements to the passenger experience, throughput and security. This offers the highest level of passenger convenience, allowing for liquids and electronics to be kept in cabin baggage. High-resolution EU image-quality compliant 2D imaging assists operators in finding prohibited items and weapons quickly.
