TOKYO: Narita International Airport Corporation in Japan has ordered 20 high-speed CTX 9800 DSi explosives detection systems (EDS) for hold-baggage screening.
Narita is the main international airport in Japan, handling around 50 per cent of the country's international passenger traffic and 60 per cent of its international air-cargo traffic. The airport has collaborated with Smiths Detection to enhance hold-baggage screening capabilities for nearly ten years.
Scheduled for deployment between 2019 and 2022, the new 20 CTX 9800 units will replace more than 27 legacy CTX systems and will allow Narita to screen hold baggage faster, more efficiently and with a reduced footprint.
This is the first order for Smiths Detection’s new CORAL Advanced Predictive Analytics Suite. Leveraging operational data to predict and schedule maintenance on hold baggage or checkpoint screening networks, CORAL is a powerful new tool to help airports minimise downtime while maximizing the efficiency of their service programme
