Rohde & Schwarz is exhibiting its comprehensive portfolio of static and walk-through security scanners to meet the highest airport security and passenger comfort requirements.

The R&S®QPS is the most secure and most convenient solution for air travelers. Visitors will see the multiple-step approach towards fully automated screening that Rohde & Schwarz developed in cooperation with dormakaba, a global leader in smart & secure access solutions. Passenger self-screening combines improved efficiency with a better passenger experience without compromising security. Most important is the improved job quality for security screeners who no longer have to perform monotonous routines and can focus on important security procedures.

In addition to the R&S QPS 201, the R&S®QPS Walk2000 a full 360° walk-through security scanner for fast and touchless screening will be at the show. The system operates with extremely low output power in the ultra-wide-band frequency range for excellent penetration of multiple layers of clothing, making the time-consuming removal of shoes and clothing unnecessary. People can walk through the system at a natural pace and with normal posture. AI-based detection software automatically identifies any material. The results are displayed in real time on a gender-neutral avatar and with LED stripes.

Automatic calibration allows uninterrupted operation, while a robust design, built-in self-diagnosis capabilities and no moving parts help lower maintenance costs. The scanner can easily be integrated into a complete security lane architecture or other end-to-end integrated security solutions.

Both the R&S QPS201 and the R&S QPS Walk2000 can be experienced at the Passenger Terminal EXPO 2023 in Amsterdam, from March 14 to 16, at booth 1115.
