The latest technology and solutions for security checkpoints


Register now for the ICAO Global Aviation Security Symposium, being held in collaboration with Airports Council International (ACI). The event will take place from 12-14 September at ICAO Headquarters in Montréal, Canada. It will bring together AVSEC professionals from around the globe to enhance the mind-set towards aviation security. It will also encourage international cooperation and collaboration to address the threat posed by terrorists targeting civil aviation by reinforcing, strengthening and promoting the international framework of aviation security standards.

How can airports provide effective security while improving passenger experience and making the most of space and resources? With a renewed emphasis on detecting explosives, the evolution of technology has become an imperative. Organized in collaboration with Airports Council International, the ICAO Global Aviation Security Symposium (#AVSEC2017) will deal with this issue.

Part of the programme of AVSEC2017  will be dedicated to exploring the latest technology and solutions in security checkpoints and sharing best practices with the senior State officials, airport executives and industry experts in attendance.  Delegates will be able to participate in workshops and attend demonstrations.

Smart Security Workshop

In recognition of the challenges presented by growing passenger numbers, continuously evolving threats, and limited resources, the Smart Security programme was launched in 2013 to strengthen security, increase operational efficiency and improve the passenger experience.  The Smart Security Workshop at AVSEC2017 will bring insights from trials and deployments that have been undertaken through this programme at many airports worldwide, and provide an opportunity to look to the future for screening technologies.  The challenges and possibilities presented by Computed Tomography (CT) will be discussed alongside advancements in checkpoint configuration and detection algorithms.

The innovative technologies and processes implemented at the airports participating in Smart Security have been of great benefit and the experiences gained provide tangible examples and best practices that can be rolled out worldwide.
