European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) Approves Security Inspection Technology

Rapiscan® Systems, a leading global supplier of security inspection technology, today announced that its 920CT checkpoint screening system has achieved C3 approval from the European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) under its Common Evaluation Process (CEP) for Explosive Detection Systems for Cabin Baggage (EDSCB).

With this approval, passengers may now leave liquids and laptops in their carry-on luggage during the screening process at airport checkpoints that utilize the 920CT system and follow the ECAC standards.

Rapiscan’s 920CT is equipped with advanced software and detection algorithms that are designed to be upgradeable. With 3D volumetric imaging, the 920CT is superior to 2D systems as it provides improved visualization of potential threats. It has also been engineered to integrate seamlessly with Rapiscan’s TRS™ solution to create a more efficient checkpoint experience for passengers and staff.

“Achievement of this detection standard demonstrates our commitment to pursuing the highest regulatory approval standards to meet the needs of our customers,” said Mal Maginnis, President of Rapiscan Systems. “We look forward to bringing this innovative screening solution to more customers around the world.”
