All over the world authorities and airports have 100% hold baggage screening (HBS) requirements. Throughput rates have to be guaranteed, while minimising inconvenience and delays, and ensuring that all bags are secure. This demands smart solutions at all of the required screening levels.
HBS involves more than simply installing screening machines. Ensuring that all bags are secure requires a
concept that integrates this technology for both efficient operations and favourable life-cycle costs. This gives passengers the security and convenience they expect. AAC has the knowledge and experience to implement the optimum solution for individual requirements.
Similarly, complying with the latest Standard 3 regulations is not just a matter of removing existing screening systems and replacing them with new ones. Careful attention is needed for system integration, cost-effectiveness and optimum capacity utilisation.
AAC have worked with a number of customers from definition of HBS requirements through to integration of their chosen HBS machines within their current baggage handling systems. This ensures the minimum disruption to operations since Standard 3 machines can be implemented in a standard 2 mode until single image screening can be implemented – a proven cost effective way to achieve standard 3 compliance.
AAC have worked with a number of HBS machines suppliers and worked on the integration of these machines, cementing our knowledge of the TSA OST-CBIS-IRD.
