Smiths Detection upgrades security in 10 Indian airports

Smiths Detection has completed the installation of 34 units of the CTX 9800 DSi checked baggage Explosive Detection System (EDS) at ten airports managed by the Airports Authority India (AAI) and one airport managed by Chandigarh International Airport Limited (CHIAL).

The company has also signed a new contract to install six additional units at five domestic airports across the country by end of March 2021. AAI manages a total of 137 airports in India, and is responsible for building, managing, and maintaining civil aviation infrastructure.

In 2018, AAI partnered with Smiths Detection to introduce the CTX 9800 DSi to nine airports, including Chennai and Kolkata International Airport, to meet enhanced standards mandated by India’s aviation regulatory body, the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS).

The new installations at Kolkata and Chennai Airports this year build on AAI’s aim to enhance security and efficiency at their airports and prepare India for the eventual rebound of air travel in a post-COVID19 world.

Vikrant Trilokekar, Managing Director India, Smiths Detection, said, “At this time, airports need to maximise cost efficiencies through technologies that enable accurate detection and seamless flow of baggage. We’re confident that our security solutions, technical expertise, and experience will help AAI meet the industry’s highest security standards and get ready for the future of travel.”

Smiths Detection has also completed training of operational staff at all sites.
