The new scanner makes a 3D picture of the luggage so that controllers can look at it from every angle. Researchers also want to know if the new scanner will speed up security checks.
The pilot project is taking place at two security lanes: one in departure hall 3 and one in transfer hall E/F. Passengers will, however, still be required to put liquids and gels in a sealed plastic bag.
If everything goes according to plan and the pilot project is successful, Schiphol will gradually introduce new scanners to all 67 security lanes. The process will be completed at the end of 2017.
