Leidos has deployed its ClearScan computed tomography (CT) scanner at Germany’s Frankfurt Airport (FRA).

The CT scanner is a key component of the new security lane under transition in Terminal 1, Concourse A. The work is being performed under the leadership of airport operator Fraport, which recently took over responsibility for the organisation, management, and performance of security checkpoints at FRA.

“We are thrilled to support Fraport and bring the latest technologies to Germany’s largest aviation gateway,” said Brad Buswell, senior vice president and operations manager at Leidos. “The company’s Security Enterprise Solutions operation works diligently with our partners and customers to deliver real solutions that enable safe and efficient passenger movement. We’re excited to see these innovations expand and support Germany’s work safeguarding passengers.”

Leidos’ ClearScan cabin baggage scanner includes advanced explosives detection algorithms that eliminate the need for passengers to divest approved electronics and liquids from baggage. This results in less time per passenger at the checkpoint.
