Smiths Detection awarded multi-million dollar contract by Airports Authority India

Airports Authority India (AAI) has awarded Smiths Detection a multi-million dollar contract to boost aviation security across the country.

AirportValued at over US$50 million, Smiths Detection won the contract following an international tender process to install and integrate high-speed explosives detection systems for hold-baggage screening across nine airports in India.
