Morpho Detection, part of Morpho, Safran group's security business, launched a data collection study of its next-generation Shoe Scanning Device at Indianapolis International Airport (IND), one of the final steps in preparing this solution for regulatory approvals.
The data collection will take place at Indianapolis International Airport's presecurity Civic Plaza and is expected to provide critical insights into real-world operational requirements. Morpho Detection's shoe scanning device (SSD) is designed to detect shoe-borne threats, allowing air travelers to be screened at security checkpoints without the need to remove their shoes.
“We're excited to take this important next step towards the acceptance and adoption of advanced shoe screening technology,” said Dennis Cooke, President and CEO of Morpho Detection. “There is a growing global demand for a convenient and effective shoe scanning option, and we're pleased to offer Indianapolis travelers the opportunity to be part of the final development of this solution.”
“The Indianapolis data collection will take us one step closer to the checkpoint of the future, armed with real-world data, we are confident we can deliver highly effective shoe scanners that provide a fast, convenient solution for travelers around the world,” said John Hill, CTO, Morpho Detection.
