Hyderabad International Airport receives UNICEF funded mass fever screening system from Govt of India

Hyderabad: Amidst the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, Hyderabad International Airport is continuing to handle the international relief flights under the Govt of India’s largest evacuation programme of Vande Bharat Mission (VBM).

With an objective of enhancing the efficacy of the screening process, the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India, in coordination with Asian Development Bank, has provided Hyderabad International Airport with a state-of-the-art Thermal Scanner, a Mass Fever Screening System, funded by UNICEF (United Nations Children’s Fund). The new thermal scanner will be used by the Airport Health officials of MoH&FW (Ministry of Health & Family Welfare).

The new thermal scanner at Hyderabad International Airport is a ceiling-mounted Mass Fever Screening System. This system is capable of scanning, detecting and tracking febrile persons with elevated skin temperature. The system automatically adjusts and adapts to the surrounding ambient temperature without any human intervention. With its Intuitive User Interface and Dual-Displays (Day Camera + Infra-Red), it provides easy identification of passengers with elevated temperature while simplifying operations and minimizing handling. The new thermal scanner imparts more control to the Hyderabad Airport Health Organisation, along with the existing thermal scanners at the International Arrivals.

The system alerts if any passenger is found with high temperature, without disturbing passenger movement and throughput. We are thankful to all the stakeholders for this gesture for assisting us in the system supply, installation and integration.
