Pangiam has completed the initial exploratory assessment of its Project DARTMOUTH’s threat detection capability in the Netherlands, enabling it to commence the next stage of trials at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS).

Pangiam and the Royal Schiphol Group announced their partnership in March 2023 with the view of using the new security technology, developed by Pangiam and Google, to screen hand baggage more quickly and safely at the airport.

The technology uses artificial intelligence and algorithms to analyse images of hand baggage and identify prohibited items and security risks. This includes co-ordinated threats, such as dissembled weapons, across bags, lanes and checkpoints.

The initial assessment of this AI-powered technology in the Netherlands was conducted by the Dutch Organization for Applied Scientific Research (TNO). Its successful completion paves the way for trials to begin at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.

Fred de Winter, Senior Manager Security at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol said:

We are truly excited about the strong results achieved by Pangiam in the exploratory assessment. These results give us great confidence in the collaboration with Pangiam and the positive impact Project DARTMOUTH can have on our security checkpoint operations. We look forward to the trials and the potential transformation of our security screening procedures.

This next phase of trials will allow for further development and refinement of the system. Successful pilot and EU regulatory compliance will then be required to pave the way for full-scale implementation at the airport.

Alexis Long, Head of Project DARTMOUTH at Pangiam said:

We're making significant strides as we transition into the next stage trials, thanks to the invaluable support from Schiphol. This testing phase in the real-world environment is crucial in fine-tuning our technology and ensuring it aligns seamlessly with existing infrastructure.
