Optosecurity Inc. Key Developments

First French Airport Deploys Smiths Detection’s New Integrated Security Solution

Toulouse-Blagnac Airport in southern France is to deploy Checkpoint.Evo, a newly launched innovative software solution that greatly enhances the inspection and integration capacities of security checkpoints. It will be the first French airport to install the system, developed by Smiths Detection in partnership with Optosecurity of Canada. Deployment is due for completion by July 2015 at the international airport which handled around 8 million passengers in 2014. Checkpoint.Evo connects individual sensors to a fully networked checkpoint system to provide real-time data collection, distribution and management that improves both the inspection process and operational efficiency. The centralised remote screening helps speed up inspection of hand luggage because image evaluation and alarm resolution from, for instance, x-ray scanners can be centrally monitored away from the noise and distractions of the checkpoint. In addition, advanced recheck functions electronically mark suspicious areas in bags to enable a more focused search for illegal items by on-the-spot operators, resulting in faster throughput and reduced queuing times.

Optosecurity Inc. Appoints Ad Rutten as Director

Optosecurity Inc. announced that Mr. Ad Rutten, former COO of Schiphol Airport, has joined their Board of Directors. Mr. Rutten has more than 30 years of experience in the aviation industry, serving in many senior roles within the Schiphol Group as well as sitting on the Board of ACI Europe and ACI World.

Optosecurity Wins Bid for Airport-Wide Centralized Remote Screening at Brussels

Optosecurity announced that it has won the public tender for an airport-wide centralized image processing solution of passenger carry-on bags at Brussels Airport in Belgium. The airport is acquiring Optosecurity's eVelocity integrated security screening software that allow operators of X-Ray systems to be located remotely from checkpoint operations, enabling them to more efficiently review images of carry-on parcels and items, speeding throughput and enhancing security. Brussels Airport is deploying the integrated software screening suite at its new Connector central screening facility, a 25-lane facility that will be the first in the world to provide central screening of cabin baggage for the entire airport. The airport has used eVelocity previously for remote screening.
