WASHINGTON - Crowded security checks with long queuing times at airports will soon be a thing of the past. Together with the global players Vanderlande, market leader for logistic process automation at airports, and Rohde & Schwarz, specialist for eAIT technology at airports, dormakaba will develop a fully integrated and self-screening security checkpoint for airport passengers. The project is part of a program of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to improve screening efficiency and passenger flow in security checkpoints, AviationPros reports.

The Military & Aerospace Electronics take:

27 September 2022 - A fully automated process at the passenger security checkpoint optimizes the people flow at the checkpoints and significantly increases the security standard of the checkpoint processes. In the future, the process itself will require fewer personnel for the screening process, so the staff can concentrate on other tasks around the security checkpoints. As a result, the checks will be almost touchless, which also provides a major advantage from a hygiene point of view.

"We are proud to be part of this project together with renowned partners such as Vanderlande and Rohde & Schwarz," says Lars Rosenberger, Vice President VBO Airport and Airline Solutions at dormakaba. "With our solution for automated boarding pass control, we already manage access to the security checkpoint. Now we are going one step further by optimizing the processes in the security checkpoint itself. This will enable dormakaba to further expand its field of activity in the airport sector in the future."
