Advanced Explosive Detection System Deployed at London Heathrow Airport

Jan 24 2023

Agilent Technologies Inc has announced the deployment of their next-generation alarm resolution technology, Insight200M, at London Heathrow Airport. This advanced system ensures increased safety on planes while improving passenger experience at the airport.

The Insight200M liquid explosive detection system (LEDS) is ECAC Standard 3 Type A & B certified and works alongside computed tomography (CT) X-ray screening technology, allowing for faster screening with a lower false alarm rate.

“As one of the world’s premier travel hubs, Heathrow airport’s deployment of Insight200M systems continues a strong partnership that started with Cobalt Light Systems (now part of Agilent) in 2013,” said Geoff Winkett, Vice President and General Manager of Molecular Spectroscopy at Agilent. “The new fleet has been deployed at Heathrow throughout the busy summer months with minimal impact to operations due to the dedication of the Agilent and Heathrow teams.”

With the installation of Insight200M, the 100 mL rule for liquids may be phased out in the future, eliminating the requirement for passengers to remove liquids and laptops from their cabin baggage. This system was deployed throughout Heathrow's busy summer months with minimal impact to operations, due to the dedication of the Agilent and Heathrow teams.
