Rapiscan Systems has officially announced that its 920CT checkpoint screening system has achieved C3 approval from the European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) under its Common Evaluation Process (CEP) for Explosive Detection Systems for Cabin Baggage (EDSCB).

With this approval – which was actually received about a year ago – passengers may now leave liquids and laptops in their carry-on luggage during the screening process at airport checkpoints that use the 920CT system and follow the ECAC standards.

Rapiscan said its 920CT is equipped with advanced software and detection algorithms that are designed to be upgradeable. With 3D volumetric imaging, the 920CT is superior to 2D systems as it provides improved imagery of potential threats. It has also been engineered to integrate with Rapiscan’s TRS solution to create a more efficient checkpoint experience for passengers and staff.

“Achievement of this detection standard demonstrates our commitment to pursuing the highest regulatory approval standards to meet the needs of our customers,” said Mal Maginnis, president of Rapiscan Systems.
