Optosecurity Launches New Remote Screening Software Suite

Optosecurity launches its new remote screening solution eVolution, addressing an unmet need in the aviation security industry. Otherwise called centralized image processing, or multiplexing, remote screening improves the operational efficiency of security checkpoints as it provides airports with improved performance and flexibility. Already deployed on over one hundred and fifty aviation checkpoint security lanes around the world, Optosecurity's innovative technology has proven its efficiency with eVolution's premium counterpart eVelocity, which helped multiple airports significantly reduce operational costs, increase passenger throughput, and improve security. The new entry level solution is more than welcomed in today's aviation industry as pressure continues to grow worldwide to comply with security requirements and ensure customer satisfaction whilst passenger traffic is swelling and facilities are reaching full capacity. Optosecurity's eVelocity software suite is the first in the world to enable centralized remote screening of hand luggage, redefining airport security paradigms and economics, demonstrating proven savings and productivity enhancements. Optosecurity's automated threat detection software also enables liquid explosives detection in a cost-efficient way and is certified by European civil aviation authorities.

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.
