The rising hassle and cost of airport security


15 years ago, the average number of passengers that passed through security was 350 per hour, per line. However, over the past years that number has dropped to less than half the throughput with some cases being as low as 60 passengers per hour.  As a result, 95% of all passengers find the security process stressful and intimidating. 

Exruptive has developed an X-ray scanning system with enhanced, proprietary ECAC security standard C3 certifiable X-ray technology that eliminates the need for passengers to unpack complex electronics and liquids when going through security. The throughput per scanner line will be 450 passengers or more per hour, double to triple that of existing tray-based solutions. 


Replacing the traditional trays with our scannable trolley

The Trolley Security Scanner combines a new and innovative X-ray technology with a never-before-seen method that disrupts the entire way of thinking airport security scanning.


By taking away the standard trays that are part of the current security procedure, the Trolley Security Scanner and the scannable plastic trolley allow the passengers to prepare themselves long before reaching the security scanner. At the same time it allows the passengers to keep their belongings within their backpacks and suitcases.


All this combined creates a stress-free procedure for both passengers and security staff, increases the security throughput to 450+/hour, allowing the airport passengers to enter the commercial area and gates more satisfied and stress-free than ever before.

New security screening technology


Our new scanner uses Multi-energy X-ray technology to create unique images for the operator that will be able to detect illegal substances with a much higher precision than with current technologies.

Standard X-ray images

  • Colour coding according to category:
    orange = organics, green = glass, blue = metals


  • Items still superimposed

  • Difficult to discern dangerous organic materials from harmless

  • In the case displayed above, all three bottles would call for investigation, even if the content is safe (water, soft drinks).

  • Electronics and liquids must therefore be unpacked during security process

  • Accurate materials identification with multi-energy

  • Colour coding in harmless (green) or dangerous (red)

  • Accurate positioning of safe objects
    > Vastly reduction in false alarms


  • Accurate positioning of dangerous goods
    > less time spent searching the luggage manually


  • No need to unpack electronics and liquids from luggage before security


Benefits for airport, staff and passenger


The new process and technology in Exruptive Security creates significant benefits for both the airport and its security operators as well as the passengers, by providing a much more efficient and stress-free security process.
