Amsterdam Schiphol Airport Trials Pangiam’s Security Technology

Royal Schiphol Group has partnered with Pangiam to develop new security technology that could help screen hand baggage quickly and safely at the airport.

Pangiam’s technology uses artificial intelligence and algorithms to analyse images of hand baggage and identify prohibited items and other security risks.

This process has the potential to enable travellers to go through security faster, without reducing safety.

Schiphol and Pangiam are collaborating to develop a new technology, powered by artificial intelligence, to screen hand baggage quickly and safely
Philip van Noort, Director Security at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, said:

“We are fully committed to recruiting security colleagues and have been increasing the productivity of our security equipment recently, of course without compromising on the quality of security. In the future, this collaboration can contribute to more comfort for travellers thanks to secure and faster hand baggage screening. Safety always remains our priority.”

With this partnership, Schiphol has become the first major European airport to support Project DARTMOUTH, which is led by Pangiam and Google.

The collaboration will explore how Pangiam’s technology could be implemented at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport (AMS) and other airports.

Alexis Long, Head of Project DARTMOUTH at Pangiam said:

“Royal Schiphol Group has an international reputation for innovation and excellence in technology. This collaboration allows us to bring the benefits of artificial intelligence to the security checkpoint and improve the process.”

The new security technology can be integrated into existing hardware and equipment, such as Schiphol’s CT scanners, and can be used alongside other software.

Schiphol is currently testing this system on a small scale in order for it to be further developed.

If the technology meets all requirements and European regulations and the trial period is successful, the airport then plans to implement it at scale.
