"Reaching these milestones so quickly is a tribute to the engineering and design excellence of Analogic's technical teams," said Jim Ryan, senior vice president and general manager, Security Systems. "The ConneCT embodies 25 years of Analogic's leadership and innovation in aviation and medical CT technology. We are on track for TSA and international certification testing in early 2017 and look forward to delivering the security solution the industry and the traveling public have been waiting for."
Analogic's ConneCT system is a high throughput security screening system designed for airport security checkpoints as well as other critical infrastructure protection applications. It uses Analogic CT technology and automated threat detection software to provide superior passenger throughput, increased security and lower total cost of ownership. The ConneCT also features a compact footprint and design, making it easy for airports to upgrade to ConneCT from current 2D X-ray scanners.
"The wait is over. Airport trials with Analogic's CT technology indicate that the ConneCT can reduce peak travel wait times considerably while increasing security when used as part of an optimized checkpoint solution," said Mark Laustra, vice president global business development and government relations. "We will be working closely with certification agencies, international airports and airlines in 2017 to bring the ConneCT to market."
