Smiths Detection has supplied its industry leading X-ray screening equipment to safely and efficiently secure the United Nation’s COP28 summit between November 30, 2023 – December 13, 2023, at Expo City in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The event was attended by a record 85,000+ core-participants, comprised of world leaders and business executives, an 80% increase over COP27.
To facilitate the vast quantity of footfall and goods, three types of X-ray solution were deployed to ensure that no threats entered before and during the event. The HI-SCAN 6040 DV, an advanced dual-view X-ray inspection system, was used to automatically detect explosives and liquids, alongside state-of-the-art HI-SCAN 100100T-2is and HI-SCAN 145180-2is scanners that significantly shortened inspection times and increased operational efficiency. 
Over 100 machines were used in total, with the HI-SCAN 6040 DV being the most utilised. This solution eliminated the need to re-position or re-scan objects and offered superior image quality and easy integration into tray handling systems, the ideal scanner for efficient screening in high threat applications. 
Tom Squier, Managing Director at Smiths Detection Middle East, said, “We were proud to supply our state-of-the-art X-ray screening equipment at one of the world’s most high-profile events to protect world leaders, state delegates, business executives, and technical and support teams. Delegates from Smiths Group were also honoured to have taken part in several roundtables at COP 28, sharing their relevant industry experiences and insights as part of the global transition to achieve a more sustainable future.”
