White Paper on Airport Challenges:
security and seamless customer experience
Designing the right concept for airport security measures is a challenging task in our days. Not only the appropriate regulatory framework needs to be met, but as well ensure smooth operations at the airport that ensure seamless traveler experience. RS DYNAMICS is fully aware of those challenges and strives to offer and develop solutions that are not only future-proof but as well cost efficient and easy to use.
Travelling around the globe by plan has become a very affordable and enjoyable way to spend free time. Airports around the globe are profiting from this trend but are at the same moment challenged by securing airport traffic from terrorist threats. Explosive trace detection is and will be an important part of an overall system of airport protection that is based not only on perfect checkpoint solutions but encompasses the entire airport.
Working under demanding conditions
The challenge has been always to provide immediate and true information about traces on persons, packages, vehicles or surfaces checked by operators. The challenge for airports not only at checkpoints is a device that can be moved quickly to the target and not vice-versa.
A limitation in false-alarm rates as well as the detection of commonly used explosives is a necessity. The threat of IED (improvised explosive devices) is a serious issue for airports and requires devices that are capable to cope fast and reliable with the detection.
Integration and flexibility
RS DYNAMICS products are designed to be easy to use, reliable and fully hand-held. This allows to better control flows of passengers, baggage and cargo without being limited to checkpoints. The products have been further designed for the use of a wide range of operators that can be quickly introduced into the usage. This allows for instance to use the devices either independently for a fast intervention or as second check within checkpoints in case of false alarms. Some devices are equipped with bar code readers for baggage check or radioactivity detection.
High demanding conditions are met with devices being capable to operate within temperature changes and humidity shifts. False alarms, battery operation time as well as consumables are among the best solutions on the market.
RS DYNAMICS has based its product developing always on the word of the customer. This is how our bestselling device, the miniEXPLONIX has been originated. Customers were in need of a highly flexible and ultra-portable solution for trace detection, capable to work under high demanding conditions. RS DYNAMICS is further pursuing this path as well within airport security, preparing several leading-edge technologies, allowing for instance to identify better IED or persons in general presenting a danger, either having been in contact with explosives, drugs or gunshot or other contrabands and either preventing from entering an airport or a country.
RS DYNAMICS strives to support airport management and developers to cope with enhancing security and offering a seamless customer experience. The company is currently working on solutions to enable a fast and reliable detection not only of traces of explosives, but as well drug users and other issues, presenting a danger to airport traffic. Science for homeland safety will continue to be the motto of the company with providing the smallest, most reliable and easiest to use devices not only for explosive trace detection.
