What are the advantages of the CT technology?

The exponential growth in air traffic demand calls for new solutions that can guarantee efficiency, without compromising the passenger experience.

Whether it is for business or for leisure, airport passengers seek a smooth and fluid experience at the airport. In turn, airports are eager to simplify the journey across the airport and let passengers enjoy what the airport has to offer. This has become even more important as non-aeronautical revenue streams, such as retail, are becoming vital for an airports’ financial stability.

What is CT?

CT is the latest checkpoint X-ray scanning equipment to enhance threat detection capabilities for carry-on baggage. The technology is similar to CT technology used in the medical field and research shows that CT is the most consequential technology available today for airport checkpoints.

Let us put it differently for everybody to understand. TSA’s current screening technology for carry-on bags uses 2-D images. The CT technology applies sophisticated algorithms for the detection of explosives and other threats by creating a 3-D image that can be viewed and rotated 360 degrees for a thorough analysis.

Simfox CT is an X-Ray Computed Tomography Simulator that is used to train and test the X-ray detection skills of security screeners in Airports.

What are the advantages of CT?

CT technology provides enhanced detection of threat items. Like existing CT technology used for checked baggage, the machines create such a clear picture of a bag’s contents that computers can automatically detect explosives, including liquids.

With CT, a thin slice of radiation is passed through the object and the transmitted intensity is measured by a detector array. The object is rotated in order to obtain views from all directions about the object. The data is processed by a computer to reconstruct the x-ray attenuation coefficients corresponding to volume elements within the object’s interior. The reconstructed data allows imaging of the object’s interior in its true dimensional orientation as if it were sliced open. This unprecedented imaging capability allows the ready interpretation of complicated geometries and quantitative measurement of dimensional and density information. CT is applicable to examinations for volumetric defect detection and/or configuration control.

Computed Tomography scanners

Renful Premier Technologies has catered to a growing need to train Computed Tomography machine operators to a high standard and has developed a unique simulator and training platform – Simfox Computed Tomography.

The platform is built on the standard Simfox 2D Baggage and as such, has all the useful features of bag building, progress monitoring and supervisor reports. Simfox Computed Tomography bridges the gap between the classroom and the operation, by providing an identical, virtual platform for screeners to develop their skills.
