Rohde & Schwarz wins airport security scanners order

Rohde & Schwarz has secured a 5-year Framework Agreement with MAG to supply the latest generation of R&S QPS201 security scanners to Manchester, London Stansted and East Midlands airports. MAG is the UK’s largest airport group, with over 60 million passengers every year to its three airports.

The contract will commence with an initial six scanners at London Stansted Airport from April 2019, as the airport gears up for the busy summer period. It is expected up to 100 R&S QPS201 security scanners will be deployed across the three airports over the next five years.

“At MAG, our emphasis is on providing a positive experience for all passengers that visit our airports,” said David Quayle, Manchester Transformation Programme Terminal Design and Operations Lead, Manchester Airports Group. “With this in mind, we selected the R&S QPS201 for its open architecture design and scanning efficiency.  We concluded that Rohde & Schwarz will be a responsive and professional partner, and that their product will assist our security operations.”

Frank Mackel, VP Europe at Rohde & Schwarz commented, “We are delighted to be working in partnership with MAG. The new scanners aim to put passengers at ease, featuring a more relaxed pose position, a more open design and a faster scan time. The new scanners also benefit security staff, giving them greater visual access to passengers. With this package of benefits, we hope more airports can benefit from the QPS201 to help them further increase the flow of passengers passing through their security channels.”
