The Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) will provide technical standards for full-body scanners and new security technologies within a month so that passengers won’t need to take out their smart devices.
In India, the massive lines of passengers will not have to suffer to take out their computers, smartphones, and chargers from their cabin bags before scanning them. The BCAS which oversees aviation security is anticipated to release technical regulations within a month, paving the door for airports to use new technology to inspect luggage without removing electronic gadgets.
The Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) Director General Zulfiqar Hasan said that the newer technology is necessary for better safety as well as for passenger comfort, and the equipment used to scan cabin luggage has to be improved at all airports, including Delhi Airport.
A Senior Official of the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) stated that the need for travelers to remove their laptops and other electronic devices will be eliminated by technologies like dual x-ray, scintigraphy, and neutron beam technology.
The need for using upgrading technology comes as airports around the nation are seeing an all-time high in air travelers. The security lanes at the Delhi airport were discovered to be the most congested areas, partly because the number of X-ray machines for screening cabin luggage was out of proportion to passenger volume. This overcrowding recently caused travelers to miss flights, that’s why the need of using new technology will be introduced soon in the country.
