The Tolmachevo Airport upgraded the passengers screening system
In order to improve security systems the Tolmachevo Airport will purchase the third consecutive equipment "Sibskan" for pre-screening of passengers.
This decision was made in view of the dynamics of passenger growth: over 22% in 2011 and more than 30% in the first quarter of 2012. Total investments will amount to about 5 million rubles. The new equipment will be installed in the Domestic Flights Terminal (A).
"Sibskan" is the development of the Institute of Nuclear Physics of Budker SB RAS scientists. It eliminates the need for passengers to remove clothing and shoes, as well as to remove metal objects and mobile phones from pockets. The maximum scan time - 5 seconds. Ultralow dose of x-ray irradiation does not exceed the natural background radiation and allows one person to be inspected up to 200 times a year. This modern way to express control was highly appreciated by clients of the Tolmachevo Airport: it is selected by a third of passengers.
