Smiths Detection Equips Commonwealth Games

miths Detection today said deployment of its security scanning systems to help protect athletes and spectators at the Commonwealth Games in New Delhi has been completed in good time for the opening ceremony on Sunday.

The massive security operation around the Games, directed by the Delhi police, Indian army and other security forces, will be assisted by a wide range of Smiths Detection's screening systems at access points in and around the main venues and athletes' village.

These include more than 230 X-Ray scanners for luggage, 24 CBRN (Chemical Biological Radiological Nuclear) monitoring systems, six vehicles equipped to cope with CBRN or hazmat (hazardous material) incidents, and a Container Inspection System to screen heavy road traffic. They will check people and vehicles for concealed threats, from guns and explosives to chemical or biological weapons.

Smiths Detection President Stephen Phipson, CBE, said: "It was a great challenge to complete this major order which again underlines our growing presence in India, one of the most important emerging markets for our advanced detection solutions."

JK Srivastava, Managing Director of Smiths Detection's operations in India, said: "We have worked very closely with the Delhi police and other security services to complete the project in time and help maximise security for all the athletes and spectators."

Smiths Detection installed the main security scanning systems in the recently opened Terminal 3 of Delhi's international airport. Its equipment is deployed in all of India's major airports. Other big customers include: the Indian Armed Forces, Presidential House, government, state and police departments, hotel chains, industrial plants and diplomatic missions.
