Smiths Detection today announces that its new CIP-300 Car Inspection Portal will be installed at Manila International Airport’s Terminal 3, to scan cargo trolleys as they travel to and from aircraft.

The contract, with Filipino freight handling and warehousing company Cargohaus, will allow the trolleys to be quickly and efficiently checked for hidden weapons, explosives, drugs or other contraband, and stowaways.

The CIP-300, powered by a low-energy X-ray source and using advanced material discrimination software, provides high quality images that reveal detailed contents of freight and baggage. Its compact footprint and simple configuration offer an affordable and adaptable system that can be used, most typically on light vehicles, in a range of operational areas.

Nathan Manzi, Smiths Detection’s Asia Pacific Vice President, said.

“Smiths Detection is always seeking the best and most appropriate systems to scan different kinds of vehicles both for security and customs duty avoidance. This order underlines how easily the CIP-300 is customized and we are confident airports and security checkpoints in Asia Pacific and across the world will soon realise its full potential.”

Smiths Detection offers advanced security solutions in civil and military markets worldwide, developing and manufacturing government-regulated technology products that help detect and identify explosives, chemical and biological agents, radiological and nuclear threats, weapons, narcotics and contraband. It is part of Smiths Group, a global leader in applying integrated, advanced technologies to markets in threat and contraband detection, energy, medical devices, communications and engineered components.
