Cardiff Airport tests super-sensitive passenger scanning system
December 05, 2018 / Airport Technology
The UK’s Cardiff Airport is set to trial a super-sensitive passenger scanning system that can reveal hidden security threats and boost security. Developed by Sequestim and scientists from Cardiff University, the walkthrough scanner uses space technology to image human body heat. Leveraging the computer learning, the scanner can differentiate between threats and non-threats without requiring the passengers to stop or remove outer clothing. In addition, the scanner is capable of swiftly learning the difference between items that can and cannot be taken onto an aircraft, reducing the risk of false alarms that trouble passengers and decelerates screening.
