Leeds Bradford Airport (LBA) will install Leidos solutions as part of a drive to modernise the UK airport’s security checkpoints.
LBA is to deploy Leidos’ ClearScan carry-on baggage scanners, ProPassage automated tray return systems and Mosaic enterprise software platform.
The right technologies can help deliver the highest level of threat detection
Leidos will deliver four integrated ClearScan and ProPassage lanes. ClearScan is a computed tomography (CT) scanner with advanced, threat detection algorithms. This capability eliminates the need to remove electronics and approved liquids from carry-on baggage. With ProPassage, trays are automatically fed to passengers to divest their belongings for screening. These systems will improve both passenger and staff satisfaction by increasing operational efficiencies, Leidos said. The integrated lanes will also deliver higher throughput.
“With travel demands hitting or exceeding pre-pandemic levels, the right technologies can help deliver the highest level of threat detection and a more seamless experience for passengers,” said Brad Buswell, senior vice president and operations manager at Leidos. “We are delighted to work with Leeds Bradford Airport and provide our advanced security solutions.”

Open architecture solution
Through this upgrade, LBA will also deploy Mosaic, Leidos’ enterprise software platform. This solution integrates and analyses real-time data to create a centralised security management system. This will enable LBA to upgrade to centralised image processing (CIP) capabilities. The initial deployment is for four primary and six secondary viewing stations, as well as one supervisor station.
With Mosaic, LBA gains access to a real-time business intelligence tool to better manage the passenger flow at checkpoints, security bottlenecks and planned system downtime. Mosaic is a genuine open architecture solution designed from the outset to facilitate the integration of third-party equipment and technology.
