NEW YORK, March 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Siemens Industry, Inc. unveiled its new Siemens Apron Baggage Screening (SABS) solution this morning with a ribbon cutting ceremony. Located at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), Terminal 5 for Delta Air Lines, this is the world's first SABS project.

Siemens Apron Baggage Screening is an innovative approach to baggage screening demands at airports. The system provides an inline baggage screening matrix with explosive detection system (EDS) devices that are linked to the existing baggage handling system at the airport, essentially providing a baggage handling and screening system "in a box."

The new checked-baggage inspection system is a TSA-compliant solution that was implemented in much less time, at a lower cost, and with noticeably less disruption to terminal operations than traditional methods — making it a safer and more pleasant experience for passengers traveling through Terminal 5.

This turnkey solution is based on a pre-engineered building and modular screening matrix design, which allows a project to be completed significantly faster than conventional systems. The contract was signed in November 2009, and the project was completed in mid-November 2010, nearly one month ahead of schedule.
