Smiths Detection to enhance security at Japan's Narita Airport

Posted 20 October 2017 · Add Comment

Smiths Detection has been selected to supply innovative solutions for people screening and search functions in Tokyo's Narita International Airport.


Narita has chosen to install 13 of Smiths Detection’s eqo portals following a national directive from the Japan Civil Aviation Bureau (JCAB) to upgrade checkpoint security to comply with the latest international standards. The eqo solution will help enhance security, productivity and passenger experience.

Using unique, flat-panel millimetre-wave technology, eqooffers state-of-the-art people screening detection capability with a minimal footprint. It allows checkpoints to evolve from mechanical screening to electronically steered technology, offering better image quality and system reliability. As a result, this reliable and easily serviceable system helps to reduce the burden of security screening in airports.

“More than 20 million visitors  entered Japan last year and this number is expected to increase due to the Rugby World Cup in 2019 and Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic games in 2020” commented Nathan Manzi, Vice President of Asia Pacific at Smiths Detection. “For this reason, Japan’s International airports are seeking to increase and strengthen the effectiveness of the security process while ensuring that passengers move quickly and seamlessly through them. Narita selected our eqo solutionas it offers a small footprint and the highest passenger throughput comparable to alternative products in the market.”

By implementing eqo, airports have a rapid means of detecting concealed objects using the system’s real-time automated detection interface. eqo’s multi-material detection abilities help to reveal any concealed objects, such as metals, liquids and narcotics, which can compromise aircraft  safety. Due to its small footprint dimensions, eqo can be easily integrated into existing checkpoints without requiring major alterations to standard layouts and operations.
