L-3 Security & Detection Systems Receives Order from German Ministry of the Interior
L-3 Security & Detection Systems (L-3 SDS) announced that it has received orders from the Procurement Agency of the German Ministry of the Interior (MOI) for a combination of more than 100 ProVision ATD and ProVision 2 security scanners for primary screening at airports across Germany.
“We’re very pleased that the German MOI has adopted L-3’s ProVision platform as part of its strategy of enhancing both checkpoint security and the experience of airline passengers,” said Tom Ripp, president of L-3 Security & Detection Systems. “Our next-generation ProVision 2 is built on a flexible software platform that meets both ECAC CEP Standard 1 and Standard 2 requirements, allowing European airports to choose the configuration that best fits their security and operational needs.”
The image-free ProVision 2 system ensures passenger privacy with software that automatically detects both metallic and non-metallic threats. By indicating the location of detected objects on a generic mannequin, the system reduces the need for time-consuming and intrusive pat-down searches. The high-throughput ProVision 2 uses safe millimeter wave (MMW) technology and requires a simple single pose during a 1.5-second scan.
The ProVision ATD and the ProVision 2 have been successfully deployed in Germany for screening operations over the past year with over 1,300 first-generation ProVision ATD systems and ProVision 2 systems procured at over 250 airports worldwide.
