There aren’t many people with a better understanding of aviation security regulations than David Trembaczowski-Ryder. He joined ACI Europe in February 2010 as senior policy manager, responsible for aviation security issues. In August 2013, he was promoted to head of aviation security. David is a retired UK Royal Air Force wing commander, and former fast jet navigator/weapon system operator.
If you could look inside an Analogic CT system as it scans baggage, you would see something magical: a rotating metal disk—spinning at high speed inside a stationary metal gantry—without making physical contact.
Here, courtesy of wonderfulengineering.com are some amazing facts about Dubai:
- One of every four construction cranes on earth is located in Dubai
- Dubai’s artificial Palm Islands imported enough sand to fill 2.5 Empire State Buildings
- Dubai International Airport is the world’s busiest by international passenger traffic. By 2030, the economic impact of aviation is projected to be $88.1 billion and support 1.95 million jobs.
What better place for the Middle East launch of ConneCT, Analogic’s breakthrough in checkpoint security?
What does a Trump administration and a new Congress mean for aviation security?
That is a question for many in the aviation industry. Fortunately we were able to put that question and others to Dale Snape, an expert in U.S. aviation security policy, politics and legislation.
Dale is vice chairman at consulting firm Wexler | Walker where he has been working for 35 years since leaving teh White House Office of management and Budget. He has overseen the firm's activities in the U.S. aviation area, including security, budgets, and legislation
One recent and very positive development at US airports has been the work of airlines, airports and US TSA to deploy “automated screening lanes” at a select number of large U.S. airports. For those who have not been through one of these new lanes, US TSA has a good overview video.
Imagine it’s the early 1990s.
“Macarena” is at the top of the music charts. Airport checkpoints are deploying 2D X-Ray systems. And if you want your computers to “talk” to each other—you have to build your own Internet, because many computer manufacturers use proprietary, or "closed," technology standards. “Open” technology standards, or IT network architectures, are just starting to be used.
Aviation security industry leader Mark Laustra is chair, Security Manufacturers Coalition. Mark recently joined Analogic as Vice President, Global Business Development and Government Programs. We sat down with him to get his perspective on where airport security is going.
For EU airports that want to allow passengers to keep liquids and electronics in their carry-on bags, their checkpoint screening technology must meet the new C-3 Detection Standard. Before upgrading or investing in new checkpoint screening systems, airports should learn as much as possible about this new standard.
ConneCT was designed from the ground up to be an airport friendly solution that incorporates the latest innovations in CT technology, including a contactless drive for high reliability, an open networking architecture, and advanced automated threat detection software for high passenger throughput.
