Brunei airport to receive state-of-the-art baggage security

By Azaraimy HH

A world leading supplier in the field of airport baggage is in final contract negotiations for construction of the state-of-the-art, internationally capable, baggage security system for Brunei International Airport.

Founder and CEO of Glidepath Group and Chairman of Export New Zealand, Sir Kenneth Stevens told the Bulletin that Glidepath will provide sophisticated baggage systems for Brunei International Airport.

Sir Kenneth told the Bulletin after a New Zealand Trade Delegation briefing held at the i-Centre by Brunei Economic Development Board (BEDB) yesterday.

The new state-of-the-art system will provide a high degree of security for the travelling public, knowing that all bags that will be loaded into the airplane will be clear from or free from any drugs, alcohol or explosives.

When asked, Sir Kenneth told the Bulletin that the current system at the Brunei International Airport is quite outdated, and no longer complies with international standards.

"The new system is absolutely state-of-the-art, custom design for Brunei," Sir Kenneth said.

Sir Kenneth is in Brunei leading trade delegates from New Zealand, where the group had a briefing organised by BEDB.

Glidepath manufactures a complete range of baggage handling products and systems.

Meeting international requirements for airport safety and security, Glidepath has developed a full range of software security systems and integrates explosive detection systems (EDS) including computer tomography (CT), X-ray machines and explosive trace detection (ETD's) for efficient and reliable hold baggage screening.

Glidepath's in-line security screening software provides automation of the explosive detection system and the automatic collection of bag security status data.

Glidepath also develops a full suite of system-management software. Software packages, GlideControl - PLC control, GlideView - System Control & Data Acquisition and GlideSort - Automated Sortation Control are designed to interface between airport and airlines information networks, EDS machines and Glidepath's baggage handling systems.
