To further check the problem of insurgency and terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir, the inline baggage screening system (ILBS) was installed at the Srinagar international airport on Sunday.
The ILBS can detect explosives easily.
Hindustan Times quoted Santosh Dhoke, airport director, Srinagar international airport as saying, “Even explosives can be detected by the new screening system. This explosive detection system scans baggage 360° and creates CT-Slice with 3D image to detect explosive material in baggage.”
“The Inline hold baggage handling system (HBS) has been integrated with airport Baggage Handling System (BHS) in order to provide a complete hold baggage processing and screening system,” he further said.
He added that the screening system can handle up to 1,800 bags per hour, thus making the process faster and more efficient.
Underscoring that the new system will also eliminate queues at the departure lounges, Dhoke further said that the “stand-alone machines occupy space at departure lounges and also cause big queues, which disrupt passenger flow during peak hours. Keeping in view the security threat and hypersensitiveness, the multi-level CT-EDS based in-line detection system has been installed at Srinagar Airport.”
