Smiths Detection wins contract to provide detection systems at Egyptian airports

WIESBADEN, Germany Aug. 10, 2016 Smiths Detection has been awarded contracts worth almost £19m by Falcon Group to provide advanced detection systems for passenger checkpoint, hold baggage and cargo screening to airports across Egypt.

The award for X-ray scanners, people screening systems and trace detectors is part of national programme to provide an additional layer of security to existing equipment at airports. Smiths Detection systems were chosen by the Egyptian Ministry of Defence for their lifetime high performance and quality, as proven by earlier contracts.

The HI-SCAN 6040aTiX and HI-SCAN 6040-2is HR, which combine multi- or dual-view, high resolution imaging with sophisticated software to automatically detect explosives in carry-on baggage, will be deployed at security checkpoints. The innovative millimeter-wave eqo scanners, which can detect threat items of any material under clothing, will provide additional passenger screening. The recently launched IONSCAN 600, which detects and identifies explosives from traces found on baggage or clothing, will be deployed at passenger checkpoints and in hold baggage screening.

The contract also includes HI-SCAN 100100T-2is and HI-SCAN 145180-2is X-ray machines for screening oversized baggage and air cargo for explosives and other threats. Additional vehicle and cargo screening will be provided by the CIP-300 and HCVP Z60 car inspection X-ray portals and the mobile HCVMe35 for the inspection of loaded trucks and containers at airport entrances. Deliveries will be completed by August 2016.

Falcon Group is the main security supplier for Egypt and is in close relationship to the Military Intelligence which is a part of the Egyptian Ministry of Defence.
