Hold Baggage Screening
To safe guard the security of passengers, air transport and to prevent smuggling and the import of banned items, hold luggage is usually scanned by inline X Ray units.
Robson have a history of integration with HBS manufacturers working with the leading manufacturers from around the world with the design and installation of conveyors to partner the X Ray units. The design incorporates the Accept or Reject function, baggage can be diverted on reject for further scanning or examination. The system comprises of a series of baggage handling conveyors, the X-Ray scanning unit, a divert system such as a Plough Diverter or Vertical Diverter, on to a Roller Track and or Ball table for the Level 3 and above analysis.
The Industry standard Five Level Screening Process is based on the following:
Level 1: Automated evaluation of the X-ray image by the X-ray Machine.
Level 2: Operator analysis of the Level 1 image at a workstation(s), carried out whilst the bag continues in transit.
Level 3: A more in-depth analysis of the original Level 1 image at a separate workstation(s) or subjecting the bag to a separate X-ray process using a different X-ray technology, for example Computer Tomography (CT Scanner).
Level 4: Re-uniting the passenger and bag and carrying out a manual search.
Level 5: In the event that the passenger cannot be found, then the bag is considered a bomb threat and dealt with accordingly.
