Infrared Cameras Partners with NEC Corporation of America to Help Hawaii Airports Increase Passenger Safety


BEAUMONT and IRVING, Texas, Sept. 25, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- As air travel begins to pick up, Infrared Cameras Inc. (ICI), the leader in advanced temperature screening technology, in conjunction with NEC Corporation of America (NEC), is providing a safer way to get business and vacation travelers back in the air through the use of high-accuracy, touchless thermal cameras. With its rapid temperature screening system, ICI provides a frontline measure to detect elevated temperature?one of the first symptoms of COVID-19?to protect passengers, airport workers and flight staff.

The Hawaii Department of Transportation, in a project led by NEC, is setting the standard for precautionary safety measures with the installation of ICI's thermal cameras integrated with NEC's Thermal Screening solution at its five major airports statewide. Travelers arriving in Hawaii from the continental U.S. or, trans-Pacific locations and inter-island flights are now screened upon exiting the jet bridge, in order to quickly detect passengers with a temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher. Introduction of this system serves to increase safety, while also improving operational efficiency by replacing a previously manual screening process.

"At a time when business travel is picking back up and most Americans could use a vacation, many are still hesitant about air travel amidst the pandemic," said Gary Strahan, CEO at ICI. "Our goal is to help alleviate those concerns by delivering a highly effective way to instantly identify risks before travelers can leave the airport and enter the general population."

The NEC and ICI solution is easy to operate and understand, using a straightforward red light/green light, hot/normal indicator system. Despite its simplicity, ICI's thermal cameras provide the most accurate and reliable temperature screening solution on the market today?with only .1 to .3-degree variance.

"Working with Infrared Cameras Inc. to deploy thermal screening solutions helps us empower airports that handle large volumes of foot traffic in realizing a safer, more efficient way to continue operations," said Jason Van Sice, Sales Vice President for NEC's global aviation practice. "By leveraging intelligent thermography to remove typical bottlenecks associated with screening, we ensure that airport operations are better equipped to handle increased passenger traffic as passengers feel confident resuming travel for business or leisure returns to higher levels."

Since 1995, ICI has been responding to global health crises?across epidemics and pandemics. In addition to airports, ICI is helping to create safe and secure environments through advanced temperature screening in schools, hospitals and offices across the country.
