Optosecurity takes part in Multiplex Screening trial in Cologne Bonn Airport

Optosecurity is proud to announce that the Multiplex Screening capability recently deployed as part of the Cologne Airport “Easy Security” trial is based on its eVelocity Central Image Processing (CIP) solution.  The “Easy Security” trial is part of the cooperation between the German Federal Ministry of the Interior, and the German Aviation Association (BDL) to improve and optimize the processes of passenger management and security procedures.

The trial taking place in Terminal 1 of Cologne Bonn Airport has implemented two state of the art advanced passenger screening lanes with Optosecurity Remote Screening, replacing four conventional passenger checkpoint lanes to verify the overall performance and increased throughput that can be attained. The integrated Central Image Processing (CIP) technology enables multiplex screening of hand baggage and allows airports to enhance security whilst increasing throughput and reducing operational costs.

Michael Garvens, Chairman of the Cologne Bonn Airport Management Board commented that the “Easy Security” project was an "absolute quantum leap in control technology".
