Vanderlande’s concept for a self-screening passenger security checkpoint solution for airports has been selected by the US department of Homeland Security (DHS) for further design, development and operational testing. This will be carried out as part of the DHS Science and Technology Directorate’s Screening at Speed programme to improve screening efficiency and the passenger experience.
Vanderlande’s concept will include the supply and integration of screening lanes with its smart virtual divest assistant solution. Alongside its partners Rohde & Schwarz and dormakaba Group, Vanderlande will deliver a fully integrated and self-screening passenger checkpoint concept, as well as an operational prototype for assessment by the DHS. Dormakaba Group will provide its market-leading secure access control systems, while Rohde & Schwarz will supply its Quick Personnel Security scanner.
Andrew Manship, Vanderlande’s Executive Vice President, said: “There has been a clear trend towards passenger self-service solutions at airports, allowing for more efficiency and independence for passengers. We are excited to explore the potential of self-service security checkpoint solutions together with our partners and the US Department of Homeland Security.”
