Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and Pangiam are commencing the next-stage trials of Project DARTMOUTH, which is intended to transform airport security screening using Artificial Intelligence to enhance inspection of carry-on bags. This phase of trials allows for iterative development and refinement of the system. Successful pilot and EU regulatory compliance is needed to pave the way for full-scale implementation at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.
Announcement of the trials follows the successful completion of an exploratory assessment of Project DARTMOUTH’s threat detection capability, conducted at the Organization for Applied Scientific Research (TNO) in the Netherlands.
“We are truly excited about the strong results achieved by Pangiam in the exploratory assessment,” said Fred de Winter, Senior Manager Security, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. “These results give us great confidence in the collaboration with Pangiam and the positive impact Project DARTMOUTH can have on our security checkpoint operations. We look forward to the trials and the potential transformation of our security screening procedures.”
With the announcement, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and Pangiam are deepening their collaboration with the aim to transform aviation security checkpoints. The collaboration is designed to improve both efficiency and security of screening procedures, ultimately offering travellers a rapid, hassle-free and more secure passage through security checks.
“We’re making significant strides as we transition into the next stage trials, thanks to the invaluable support from Schiphol,” said Alexis Long, Head of Project DARTMOUTH, Pangiam. “This testing phase in the real-world environment is crucial in fine-tuning our technology and ensuring it aligns seamlessly with existing infrastructure.”
