Real Time Tomography (RTT) hold baggage screening systems is modern technology developer by Rapiscan Systems. RTT technology is deployed by airports globally to detect explosive and dangerous items, increasing security and safety on the airport. Employing a proprietary, solid-state approach, the RTT provides high-resolution, 3D imaging and stationary gantry design allows the luggage to be screened at higher speeds, without losing time. The baggage scanning system has also passed the European Civil Aviation Conference’s (ECAC) HBS EDS Standard 3 threat detection requirement. Rapiscan RTT 110 EDS is expected to pass certification testing of the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) in 2016.
Real Time Tomography (RTT) has options RTT 80 and RTT 110, which offers a larger tunnel size that is capable of screening larger items. The system is capable for different kind of baggage and flexible for different size of bags and packages. The system is capable of making accurate detections of liquid explosives, enhancing passenger safety at the airports.
Costa Rica incorporate Level 3 NAM protocol, which is the most advanced technology of streamlining coordination between control centers. The airport ordered air traffic management system and the control tower systems, which handle the approach and landing maneuvers to the primary international airports in the country. The San Jose Air Control Center comprises Neptune voice recorders and Garex 300 advanced voice communication systems, comply with the most advanced technology of streamlining coordination and highest level protocol for air traffic. The services will also be equipped with rest of the management facilities and will enable the services process and display meteorological data supplied by Multimeteo radars.
The air traffic management system will also integrate flight information to monitor and improve the management of traffic across the airport network of the country. A station will also be installed in San Jose that will be equipped with one latest generation primary and secondary radar to reinforce the control and security of aircraft movements in Costa Rican airspace. The secondary radar has the capacity for digital signal reception, and features an ADS-B receiver to improve its performance. This header will offer the maximum capacity for detecting and identifying aircraft, and will help increase the volume of traffic the country can absorb.
Millimeter wave scanner is modern whole-body imaging device, which is used for detecting objects concealed underneath a person’s clothing using a form of electromagnetic radiation. The technology is used for security on the airports and one of the common technologies of full body scanner used for body imaging, a competing technology is backscatter X-ray.
Millimeter wave scanners are two types – passive and active. Passive systems create images using only ambient radiation and radiation emitted from the human body or objects, while active scanners direct millimeter wave energy and interpret the reflected signal. With active scanners, the millimeter wave is transmitted from two antennas simultaneously as they rotate around the body. The wave energy reflected back from the body or other objects on the body is used to construct a three-dimensional image, which is displayed on a remote monitor for analysis. Two rotating transmitters produce the waves as a passenger stands still inside the machine. The energy passes through clothing, bounces off the person’s skin, as well as any potential threats — and then returns to two receivers, which send images, front and back, to an operator station.
Chroma Airport Suite is next-generation, modern multi-airport operational system, developed by Lockheed Martin Transportation and Energy, which help transform the way critical information is shared with interested units. The Chroma Airport Suite includes centralized multi-airport operational database, resource management system and flight information displays, improve the security and management process for airport operations. The Airport operations system is consolidated suite of modules specially designed for multi-airport environment and attain global approval and success within airport networks.
Moreover, the Chroma Airport Suite technology help in traffic flow management at the airports, improve operations efficiency and give more accurate reports and forecasts for traffic. The technology platform also enable strategic initiatives to manage growth and deliver operational excellence.
SITA developed new automatic boarding pass validation system, called Traveller Document Authentication System (TDAS), which features with easy and smooth travel experience to the passengers. The system uses iValidate technology, which automatically verify original, mobile or home-printed boarding passes before passport control and speeds up documents operation on the airport. TDAS system makes the process quick and simple, eliminating the need for passengers to stand in long queues and speeding up the process.
Traveller Document Authentication System comprises automatic gates activated by both handheld and static boarding pass scanners, which scan bar-code on the boarding pass and automatically makes validation. After scan the data is sent to the security, checking for duplicates and cross-referenced against the airport operational database. Also the system makes several other security checks into the airline’s departure control system, which minimize the chance for mistake.
BagManager is new and modern baggage systems, developed by SITA, which uses bar-coding and RFID tagging and give real-time status reports from airports to the airlines for passengers’ baggage. The new system provide better organization and security for passenger’s baggage and solves many logistics issues with transportation of the bags. Currently the new baggage management technology is implemented into 200 airports and 500 airlines across the world and handles 30 million bags per year.
The system uses handheld devices, which are connected with server and manages the luggage-handling team at the airport, providing accurate statistics and information about the status of the bags. These devices facilitate the loading, tracking and management of the luggage, as well as ensure a smooth reconciliation of the baggage with its respective owner. The real-time data makes baggage tracking from the check-in through each checkpoint to final destination.
