Smiths Detection wins major German contract for Advanced X-ray scanners


Smiths Detection announces a contract to provide about 50 Advanced Threat Identification X-ray (aTiX) systems for security checkpoints at Frankfurt International Airport (FRA). The value of the contract was not disclosed.
The order from the German Interior Ministry comprises HI-SCAN 6040 aTiX and HI-SCAN 7555 aTiX systems, combined with re-inspection components, and other equipment to facilitate carry-on baggage screening for liquid explosives.

Its software algorithms can be updated to detect evolving threats.
