US-based company Qylur Security Systems has launched a self-service airport security solution, which it claims can “significantly increase passenger flow, lower overall operating costs and provide drastic improvement to the passenger security experience”.
The Qylatron Entry Experience Solution is an automated, self-service security screening kiosk. Passengers place their bags, liquids and any other items deemed to be a potential security risk into a locker and then walk through a security detector. If the items in the locker are safe, the locker automatically unlocks, but if a potential risk is detected, it remains locked so a security agent can take control of the situation.
The company behind it claims that it has already been successfully trialled at a Brazilian airport, Liberty State Park ferry terminal and a US sports stadium.
Dr Lisa Dolev, CEO and Founder of Qylur, said: “We deeply care about security and about human liberty. Our goal is to not just deliver the most advanced security screening technology, but to also transform the industry so that our fundamental social beliefs and civil liberties never have to be compromised by the ultimate need for unprecedented security to protect our freedom.”
