New scanners improve security at Edinburgh Aiport

Edinburgh Airport has installed three new scanners in its security hall, reducing wait times for passengers, enhancing security and readying the airport for the future introduction of 100% scanning by the UK Department for Transport.

The new scanners complete a full scan-and-analyze cycle in just 3.8 seconds in the standard model

Commenting on the installation, Peter Barnes, security operations manager at Edinburgh Airport, said, “The Rohde & Schwarz scanners have improved our security performance thanks to its high accuracy rate and the low frequency of false alarms which has maximized our passenger throughput and resulted in our staff having full confidence in the scanners.

“It’s also improved the passenger experience by making their journey through the airport as fast and efficient as possible, while the open nature of the new scanners compared to the previous enclosed version has been a welcome addition.”

The very short scan time means there is no time for the passenger to move and disrupt the scan. The QPS201 also has a much smaller width and a significant weight reduction, which is enough potentially for an extra scanner to be installed in each lane in the same space.
