CAA International are working as part of a consortium led by Rapiscan Systems Ltd to investigate and detect the use of lithium batteries using security screening equipment.
The aim of the project is to evaluate the feasibility of the detection of lithium batteries transported as checked baggage using the security screening equipment in operation at airports. Additionally, the outcome would be to assess the valid and cost-effective technical, operational, and regulatory solutions to be used for detecting lithium batteries in checked baggage, while considering additional potential safety benefits for other transport scenarios, including cargo.
