Smiths to Provide Advanced Detectors to Two Malaysian Airports

Smiths Detection has announced that it has received supply contracts from Malaysia. The company will provide explosives trace detectors and X-ray screening systems to two main airports located in Malaysia.


The company will install HI-SCAN detectors and IONSCAN table top devices at Kuala Lumpur International Airport Low Cost Carrier Terminal 2 (KLIA2) and Penang International Airport. HI-SCAN detectors can automatically identify explosives and IONSCAN devices can detect both narcotics and explosives. The company will supply these detectors by next year.

According to Smiths Detection’s Managing Director, South-East Asia, Nathan Manzi, this supply contract is a significant milestone in servicing Malaysia. The selection of the company’s advanced systems as well as the aftermarket support from the Malaysian Airports Holdings Berhad have validated the company’s position as the main provider of airport security screening device in the globe. Smiths’ business relationship with Wafada Consult Technic, a local provider, continues to promote the awareness of the company’s market-leading products.

HI-SCAN 10080 EDtS can monitor up to 1,800 bags in an hour and detects explosives automatically. HI-SCAN 100100t-2is is an X-ray system, which can be viewed on both the sides, for checking oversized baggage. IONSCAN 500DT detects narcotics and explosives on baggage. All these detectors accelerate the screening of baggage and passenger.

Smiths Detection provides advanced security solutions to the global military and civil markets, by producing technology products that can help detect biological agents, chemical, explosives, nuclear and radiological threats, contraband, narcotics and weapons.
