Canadian Air Transport Security Authority inks deal with Xovis

The Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA) has awarded a contract for the purchase and supply of tracking sensors to Xovis AG, a Swiss high-tech company that develops, manufactures and distributes world-class 3D person tracking sensors, the company said.

The sensors will be used by CATSA to anonymously track the flow of passengers and predict processing times of passengers at Canadian airport security checkpoints. Therefore they will be integrated with CATSA´s existing boarding Pass Security System (BPSS).

Sensors are already installed at Edmonton International Airport and will be installed in the new terminal at Calgary International Airport, with a further nationwide rollout possible following an assessment at these locations.

Xovis is a Swiss high-tech company that develops, manufactures and distributes a person tracking technology based on its own portfolio of world-class 3D person tracking sensors.
