L-3’s ProVision 2 security scanner chosen for primary passenger screening by Amsterdam Airport Schiphol

L-3 Security & Detection Systems (L-3 SDS) announced today that it has received an order for 65 ProVision 2 checkpoint security scanners from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. Schiphol is implementing new checkpoint security screening aimed at streamlining and improving the passenger experience. The ProVision 2 will perform primary screening at the airport’s five new central security stations located at the main terminals and transfer areas.

“We are pleased to be part of Schiphol Airport’s pioneering vision of a new checkpoint security process that is robust, efficient and passenger-friendly,” said Thomas M. Ripp, president of L-3 Security & Detection Systems. “The new centralized checkpoints at Schiphol Airport will be more comfortable for travelers.”

The new compact design of the ProVision 2 offers the same effective checkpoint detection and throughput as the widely deployed ProVision ATD, while fitting into tight checkpoint areas with low (2.4-meter/8-foot) ceilings. The image-free ProVision 2 provides the ideal balance between addressing regulatory requirements and meeting airport operational demands for high throughput and minimal false alarms.

The passenger experience with the ProVision 2 is safe, convenient, straightforward and efficient, requiring only a single position during a 1.5-second scan.

With deployments on six continents, more than 1,000 ProVision ATD and ProVision 2 systems have been procured worldwide by nearly 250 airports.

With more than 50,000 systems deployed and supported around the globe, L-3 SDS provides security screening solutions. For more than 30 years, L-3 SDS has developed and manufactured cutting-edge products using advanced technologies that include 3-D computed tomography; automated, conventional and high-energy X-ray; radiation detection; active millimeter wave imaging; metal detection; and energetic trace explosives detection.
