NEW YORK — L3 Technologies (NYSE:LLL) announced today that it has opened an advanced Passenger Screening Experience Center near Ronald Reagan National Airport in Arlington, Virginia. The interactive center establishes an environment that allows security professionals and airport operators to test screening systems and trial new concepts in operational efficiency.
“This innovative center was designed to showcase our integrated checkpoint screening technologies and serve as an interactive venue to share ideas with our government and private security partners,” said Todd W. Gautier, L3’s Senior Vice President and President of its Electronic Systems segment. “Through collaborative demonstrations, our customers can see how our comprehensive screening solutions improve safety and operational efficiency while enhancing the passenger experience at a compelling cost of purchase and product sustainment.”
The Experience Center features L3’s innovative technology and automation solutions for aviation and critical infrastructure checkpoints. The 6,000-square-foot space includes L3’s widely deployed ProVision® 2 body scanner, ClearScan® checkpoint computed tomography (CT) cabin baggage scanner, Mach-SmartLane® automated tray return system, B220 HT™ explosives trace detector, ACX™ 6.4-MV X-ray baggage scanner and Mach-SEMS®, L3’s security efficiency management software integrated monitoring system.
ClearScan’s enhanced CT detection capabilities enable passengers to keep certain electronics and liquids in their bags. At the center, ClearScan is integrated with L3’s Mach-SmartLane automated diverter lane, which automatically routes suspect bags to a search area, expediting cleared bags on their way to the pickup point.
ClearScan is the first checkpoint CT solution to receive both Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Tier II and European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) C3 certifications. Its multiple detection algorithms and auxiliary hardware have scanned more than 10 million bags at major airports in the U.S., the Netherlands, Singapore, the U.K., Germany, Japan, Switzerland, Turkey and South Africa.
