Home / News & Insights / Vanderlande to develop innovative checkpoint concept for US Department of Homeland Security

Vanderlande’s concept for a self-screening passenger security checkpoint solution for airports has been selected by the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for further design, development and operational testing. This will be carried out as part of the DHS Science and Technology Directorates (S&T) Screening at Speed Program to improve screening efficiency and the experience of passengers.

The innovative concept will combine Vanderlande’s global airport checkpoint experience and expertise with that of its partners, Rohde & Schwarz and dormakaba Group, which specialises in aviation security processes and technology. Rohde & Schwarz is a leading supplier of eAIT technology at airports and will supply its Quick Personnel Security scanner, while dormakaba will supply its market-leading secure access control systems.

Vanderlande, renowned for its advanced passenger checkpoint solutions, will supply and integrate the screening lanes and its smart virtual divest assistant solution. With the award of this contract, Vanderlande and its partners will deliver a fully integrated and self-screening passenger checkpoint concept, as well as an operational prototype for assessment by the US DHS.

“There has been a clear trend towards passenger self-service solutions at airports, allowing for more efficiency and independence for passengers,” says Vanderlande’s Executive Vice President Airport and Parcel Solutions and Board Member, Andrew Manship. “We are excited to explore the potential of self-service security checkpoint solutions together with our partners and the US Department of Homeland Security.”
