Cochin International Airport Selects Smiths Detection’s CTX 9800 for Next-Generation Hold Baggage Screening

Smiths Detection on May 23, announced that India’s Cochin International Airport has deployed four high-speed CTX 9800 DSi hold baggage explosives detection systems (EDS) to screen all passenger checked baggage.

With the inauguration of its international Terminal 3, Cochin is the first airport in India to screen all checked baggage, referred to as Level 1 screening, with computed tomography (CT)-based EDS. Commonly referred to as European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) Standard 3 capabilities, CT EDS produce high-resolution, 3-D images that facilitate more accurate detection, lower false alarm rates, and reduce the need for manual inspections. In addition to CTX 9800 EDS, Smiths Detection has supplied 13 HRX™ dual view X-ray systems to screen arriving baggage at customs checkpoints.

To ensure maximum uptime and performance, Smiths Detection’s onsite network of expert engineers and technicians will provide preventative and rapid-response services for a minimum of ten years.
