Japan’s Narita Airport deploys state-of-the-art Security Technology

Smiths Detection chosen to supply latest passenger screening capabilities

Smiths Detection, a global leader in threat detection systems, has been selected to supply innovative solutions for people screening and search functions in Tokyo’s Narita International Airport. Narita has chosen to install 13 of Smiths Detection’s eqo portals following a national directive from the Japan Civil Aviation Bureau (JCAB) to upgrade checkpoint security to comply with the latest international standards. The eqo solution will help enhance security, productivity and passenger experience.

Using unique, flat-panel millimetre-wave technology, eqo offers state-of-the-art people screening detection capability with a minimal footprint. It allows checkpoints to evolve from mechanical screening to electronically steered technology, offering better image quality and system reliability. As a result, this reliable and easily serviceable system helps to reduce the burden of security screening in airports.

“More than 20 million visitors entered Japan last year and this number is expected to increase due to the Rugby World Cup in 2019 and Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic games in 2020” commented Nathan Manzi, Vice President of Asia Pacific at Smiths Detection. “For this reason, Japan’s International airports are seeking to increase and strengthen the effectiveness of the security process while ensuring that passengers move quickly and seamlessly through them. Narita selected our eqo solution as it offers a small footprint and the highest passenger throughput comparable to alternative products in the market.”

By implementing eqo, airports have a rapid means of detecting concealed objects using the system’s real-time automated detection interface. eqo’s multi-material detection abilities help to reveal any concealed objects, such as metals, liquids and narcotics, which can compromise aircraft safety . Due to its small footprint dimensions, eqo can be easily integrated into existing checkpoints without requiring major alterations to standard layouts and operations.

The new equipment is now fully installed and has been in operation since March 2017.
