RIYADH: The General Authority for Civil Aviation (GACA) has announced the adoption of Artificial Intelligence Security Screening Technology (ICMOR) to operate at airports in Saudi Arabia. The announcement was made on the sidelines of the opening session of the second edition of the Global Artificial Intelligence Summit, under the title “Artificial Intelligence for the Good of Mankind.” King Abdulaziz International Conference Center in Riyadh.
This certification follows a partnership agreement with Smiths Detection Group, a global leader in the application, management and manufacture of world-class security equipment technology for the aviation, port, border, security and military sectors. Intelligence solution for X-ray baggage inspection equipment. The technology automates contraband detection and maintains massive data feeds through machine learning to improve the ability and efficiency of inspecting large volumes of packages.
GACA is collaboration and technology.
The use of artificial intelligence technology (ICMOR) will accelerate the baggage sorting process with high efficiency, provide additional security controls, enhance the civil aviation sector’s ability to meet the expected growth of passengers, and facilitate flow. By doing so, we will strengthen airport operations in Saudi Arabia. Improve passenger and baggage safety and adapt artificial intelligence and machine learning technology to Saudi Arabia’s aviation industry. In addition, it fosters innovation in the civil aviation sector, expediting the travel process to improve the passenger experience, improve security and reduce human interaction.
This unique initiative, in collaboration with accredited international bodies such as the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), International Airports Council (ACI) and the International Air Transport Association, will be a prime example of the use of new technology in the civil aviation industry. . (IATA).
It is noteworthy that since the launch of the Saudi Airways Strategy, GACA has implemented a package of quality initiatives to help achieve the strategic objectives, including increasing passenger numbers to 330 million and cargo to 4.5 million tons. Worth it. annually by 2030
As a prerequisite to achieving that objective, the Authority has worked to improve the mechanism of continuous development and innovation by enhancing the capabilities of the civil aviation industry. An environment conducive to innovation to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of procedures to meet the growth of air transport.
