Aviation Experience

The escalating challenges of new regulations, increasing passenger numbers and exacting business goals all demand more complex solutions to checkpoint security. Systems must be flexible and future-proof with reliable and effective interfaces and a network to drive and monitor productivity.

Smiths Detection integrated checkpoints have been developed to support you in achieving both security and operational objectives. We provide complete solutions and back-up right from planning and design to commissioning, integration and service for the lifespan of the equipment – all equipment, technologies, software and support from one source.

Focusing on the checkpoint as a whole (rather than individual components) and how it impacts the broader operation, we create solutions tailored to meet your specific business and regulatory requirements: delivering a cost effective process, increased passenger satisfaction and sustainable commercial growth. We make it our business to understand your business.

The needs of each airport are considered in developing an integrated technical solution which is supported with a clear business case. Although the building blocks may be the same, the configuration is customised to each specific location and based on open technical standards to allow incorporation of the best available technologies, including those offered by third parties.

All our checkpoint solutions are upgradeable to accommodate escalating threats and through investment in research and development, we continue to innovate and further improve.
